Did you get a UPS tracking number or anything like that. Just wondering because I'm waiting on the 33 also and pre-ordered it.

All the Mintor 33's that were shipped show delivered except for the one that went to NM. Tracking numbers are emailed to each customer if an email address is provided. If you need a tracking number please call Top Dawg to get yours. Thank you for your business.

I saw that two posts talked about putting the 110 in an EG. MX. I have two, and with a DA 100L, they are nose heavy. I would not recommend going to a heavier engine.

The Mintor 110 maybe just a tad heavier than the DA100L, but it makes up for it with more POWER

I'm sure it does have plenty of power. I was just referring to the weight and balance issues with that particular airframe/engine combo. With a big heavy servo in the tail for the rudder and the batteries mounted on a tray just in front of the stab, my MXS is still nose heavy with a DA 100L. If the Mintor 110 is heavier than the 100L, you'll be adding even more tail weight to balance it out.

Wow...I was gonna say: move your batts further aft, but I looks like you got them back as far as they will go, besides hanging them off the rudder...LOL

Yep, picked up my 33 today. What a little jewel. Can't wait to see how it does on my 74 in. EF Yak. It's got about a thousand flights on it and I'm looking for a thousand more...................

Sounds like an airframe problem to me. Not the Engines fault. Never seen batteries mounted in the tail to balance before. Your sure it doesn't have an incidence problem?
