Thanks for that. Should be a bit easier to fly than the P-40 which has a higher wing loading.

Flight on 4S. Personally wouldn't bother with 3S. Much more fun with the extra power and the additional weight doesn't hurt performance or affect the CG much.

Looks like you just demonstrated the bending-retract-wire tendency people with the P-40 are complaining about. Makes me love my local AstroTurf soccer field even more.
