DAG, love watching your build, it's on a scale I can't even dream of. FWIW, there are a whole bunch of guys over on RCMF who fly Tony Nijhuis designs, 96" and 132" Lancasters and they figure 50 W/lb gives adequate performance and anything over 75 W/lb is wasted. Ian Walton flew S-Sugar on 45 W/lb initially on 4 brushed motors. 100 W/lb would have been sport category a few years ago, but lipos and brushless motor technology have made us power crazy. If you are trying for scale-looking flight you have more power than you will ever need.

Relax and focus on this beautiful build.

Cheers,
Jeff

P.S. the Zyrtec is pretty effective on colds too.
