In preparation to adding an APM & FPV gear we tested the Shrike after some minor adjustments to CG and trim, and conducted weight testing by adding 130g of dead weight, and then 250g of dead weight (which represents our APM2, FPV gear, and an extra battery).
It took the weight no problem, and our adjustments allowed the plane to fly perfectly without assistance.
Whats next? PUTTING ON THE APM!!! We can't wait...
