Jay,

I have following setup in my MG

1. Motor Hacker b50 10s w/ 6.7:1 gearbox
2. Esc Jeti Hacker 70 opto
3. RX battery 4 x Twicel 700
4. Wing servos 4 Wolz Micro Maxx X
5. Vtail servos 2 x WIng Maxx X
6. RX Futaba 148 DP
7. prop RFM 15 x 13 / + 5 deg "center block" (will be changed to 15 x 16 prop)
8. Battery pack 14xRC 2400 (my friend has 18 CP 1700 size cells). I have not checked the amps with this setup, but it is propably somewhere around 65 A.

The climbing performance is reasonably good and the plane is quite fast with the motor on. It is still easy to self launch. Total weight is around 2450 g (~87,5 ounce). The extra weight is not a problem for MG. With the flaps it is very easy to land (I think much easier than my Lift Off which is not difficult either).

Maybe this setup is not what MG is originally intended to, but it is really fun to fly, quite fast and thermals good enough for me = a real allrounder.

Keep us posted when you get yours in the air.

Olli
