model mass

...are they the same as original, or some hypothetical number?
(they seems to differ from actual models)

In my opinion, simulated models feel smaller/lighter than real models (true for all simulators I have tested so far). This is not a real problem I think, because it's better for training - when you can handle the simulated model, this is also true for the real model.

Have success :)

From what I know the mass is loosely related to the original all-up weight. With loosely I think it is normally set to match the real weight, but if necessary adjusted in test flights in combination with all the other parameters to give a better realistic feel.

If the model feel lighter, could that be a factor of the "infinite" battery?
This would give unlimited power, unless the battery current was limited, by the internal resistance of the battery
The recent addition of Goblin 380 it seems like head-speed is more load dependent than most other models.
I'm guessing the person that tweaked this model did this with the behavior of the original in mind.
I am not suggesting that every battery should be modeled after its peak current capability, but some general load factor limiting should be used.
I did not look if this was already there. :-)
