    Hey Guys,

    New the forum here as its the only place i can find the most information about the Vyper Bype. This models hasnt been as popular as i thought it was going to be. It seems that 3DHS will be dropping it soon?
    I'm picking one up from Shannon at Only Fine Helis were working on a deal and is a great guy to deal with.

    Now i know its almost sacrilege but i have been trying to put together a budget electronics package for this plane as i cant stretch to the recommended Hacker motor and
    Castle ESC.
    I was also looking for budget servos but decided that that wasnt a good idea, after allot of lecturing from my friends, and i am now going with the recommended HS85mgs. But only because i got a good deal on them.
    I will be using a NTM 42-38 750kv / 785w, a YEP 60amp esc, 14x7 prop
    I will also be using 4s 2200 which i am worried will be a little lite but those are the batteries i have.

    I will also be experimenting with a Guardian Gyro in this plane. I have messed with one along time ago but i want to try it again and i buddy sold me one cheap!

    Do you guys have any recommendations on how to set this up as more of a gentle 3D flyer as opposed to the extreme 3D flyer i think it is?
    Should i stick to the recommended CG or move it forward a little?

    I like to have my 68inch Velox set to feel pretty neutral with regards to CG but i am worried that the Bype will be a little to skittish for me?

    Any other recommendations and tricks that i should know about before building her and the maiden flight?

    let me know your thoughts

    Is this the coupling mix for KE? I've never been able to do nice long KE passes because I can't get a proper mix. I struggle.

    I believe that post is talking about throw vs. a mix.

    How are you approaching your mixing?

    Well the E-flite power 52 is just to much motor.. pulled it out and installed a e-flite power 32..
