Lookin good there Hog driver! I too still fly an old GWS A-10 and have lots of fun with it.

One thing on yours though--with 400w and a tiny 1450mah lipo you will be having one SHORT flight and one puffed battery I run a pair of Himax 2015-4100 motors in stock GWS 55mm fans (400w at WOT), 2200mah 25c 3s and can only fly for about 6 minutes with mixed throttle. If your 1450mah has a 20c rating then it's only meant to be discharged at 29amps. It will take around 38amps to make 400w, so a couple WOT bursts and your battery will be toast. I would get a bigger/better battery if I were you before your first flight. I'd hate to see your 2yr build go down in flames on maiden

Have fun!
