i gave it it's first flight last night, had some trouble with the push rods. but got that fixed.

it flys ok, i think the g/c is a to far back it is a little snakey. i'm going to move the wing back a little and make the controls throws less, and strap the battery in better and we'll see how it goes. The controls seem to be really sloppy but it could be the rods.

who much curve should there be in the wing on something like this.

How did you get 2.1 oz/sqft of lift???

Wing Area
540 sq inches wing area. / 144 sq in per ft = 3.75 sq ft

9 oz

9oz / 3.75sq ft = 2.4oz/sq ft.

Sorry I must have used a different number, but its still close LOL.
