This plane is extremely fast, (over 100mph!), however still stable at slow flight.

Our flight report.
Kit fits together well, light sanding of leading and trailing edges required to remove extra foam. We chose to not strengthen the wing with CF tubing, which didnt prove to be an issue, even at full speed high G turns.
We opted to mount the BESC being the battery area, in case the battery needed to be moved forward to adjust CofG, however this wasnt necessary.
EDF was mounted on the stick mount. Stick mount was shortened, with the extra piece used to raise the EDF off the stick to clear the EDF shroud. 2 bolts held the fan unit to the stick, one before and one after the fan blades.
We kept CofG 9.5cm from the apex of the winds leading edge. The flycat was hand launched at 3/4 throttle, accellerating quickly. To our surprise no trimming was required.
The flycat is an extremely fast kit to fly, and required a lot of elevator in turns. We suggest putting the elevator on maximum throws. It needs HUGE amounts of elevator during turns!
Overall an excellent plane which flys smoothly, even on windy days.
We suggest a good lipo pack, as this little hotty will chew through a 1500mAh in only 5 minutes. We used the ZIPPY-R 1800mAh 22C 3S1P pack for around 8 minute flights. As compared to the ZIPPY-Q pack which brought us short at about 7 minutes.
