You might want a little more Rudder then they call for.

I found it needed it if you want to do good knife edge flight. Watch the forward ballance point as well. Mine is ballanced about 1/8 inch back from the forward point and it has a real tendancy to nose over while taxing and if you neutralize the elevator once the tail is up it wants to swing it's a$$ to the sky. had this happened last weekend and ended up trimming a nice short section of grass at the hamilton Flying Tigers field! Right Ron!

I am thinking this winter of repositioning my servos, Rx and battery pack so that I can have the tank on the CG just like the guys do with their 27, 30, 33 and 40% jobs. I think this is the problem with my CG Extra 300 with it being only 1/8" away from the forward point I think that with the tank right behind the firewall, when it is full it moves the CG well forward of the ballance point. I am using an OS 1.08 with a 14oz tank.

Just thought I would pass that on.
