PARKZONE EXTRA 300 HELP.

#1
Hey Guys!



I am new to flitetest forums. I just purchased a parkzone extra 300 and am in need of some help..
I am an intermediate skill pilot. On the maiden flight I dont think the battery was in the correct location for CG and the plane tipped over and took a nose dive at 20ft. I am an intermediate skill pilot. I only had to replace cowl and prop.

My questions are,



Does anyone have experience with this plane and what are safe rates % to fly starting out on this plane? I had low rates tuned to 40%.



Also, what are good tips for making the battery very secure in the plane? The velcro straps in the fuselage are not great in my opinion..



LAST BUT NOT LEAST...



I dont have much experience with the mechanics of the collet installation on the motor shaft.. How do I install this back on the motor shaft?



THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP GUYS! photo 2-10.JPG

If that's the original collet, you should be able to just slide it back onto the motor shaft. As you tighten down on the prop, it will lock down the collet.
