Herb, I'm not flying one but have one here awaiting assembly.
I have the all composit version. Glass wings and ailerons.
I'm not sure on motors yet but the Kontronik Fun 600-18 on 16 cells each is looking best to me at the moment. That will be 750 watts per side, mabey a little higher useing the GP3300's.

Speaking of waiting a looooong time for fans, .... I have two Schubeler DS-51-FAN- 3ph ready to spin into service.

As for the retracts I was originaly leaning to the EJF but the Spring Air's might be worth the extra weight for the no air/air leak fail safe of gear down peice of mind. What do you think ?
