Here are a few pics of my Guillows B-17 I converted in 2004. It uses IPS motors and 5x4.3 props.
It flew ok at 20oz but could use a bit more pitch speed.
I have since made a set of vintage1 three blade props for it. The higher pitch props required a gear ratio change. I bought the gears and it's waiting for it's turn in the maintenance hangar.
