The motor will power it okay, and the servos will move the control surfaces, but not with authority. Find something close to a HiTec HS-65. I personally run Corona 13g Digital Metal gears and they seem to be doing the trick well.

Speaking of mine, I am the proud new owner of a 48" BAF Extra 300L, and I must say...simply stunning. So much more fun then a 38" So much more presence, and SO much more precision. Recommended setup from Mike, save the servos.

Got the plane at the AMA show and started building at 4:30PM Friday. Wanted it ready by Saturday morning flying. Worked on it until 3:00AM (took breaks to eat and be with the GF...although we did spend some time striping the plane together, she likes my planes for the most part then got up at 7:15AM to finish up in the morning.

Flies great...wouldn't trade it for anything. Just need some longer servo arms to get max 3D throw...then she'll really be fun.

What do you think of my packing tape job?
