Easy with a friend and more than safe and adequate for the maiden, the Mamba is friendly to a wide range of CG's

You will probably want to change the CG after the maiden any way.

Don't over think it

Thank you for the compliment, I concur with Steve's assessment about the way the Mamba flies

Other comments I get are how stable it is how light it flies, great hover torque roll and it looks so good in the air. After watching I am buying one of those

I'm not completely sold on the servos, but everything else is great. The servos are having a little centering issue indicative of cheap pots.

I have about 200 flights on mine, the aura and the Potenza servos have both been fantastic for me.

As everyone gets comfortable are you moving the CG forward or backward or just leave it per the manual?

I didn't change the CG after initial static and flight checks. The inverted 45 degree climb check is good. I have the canister set up with one elevator servo, rudder pull-pull, CF spinner, and two 2800 mah lipos in stock location.



Anyone have experience with the Flex wing bags for the Mamba 70? I'm thinking of getting a pair.
