FW-190 in VLF Style

Got inspired this AM to redo the FW-190. This is a great looking bird, since the PLF version is a bit fragile in the tail I thought I would introduce it in the VLF design/construction method.

I initially built this model with the Blue Wonder motor that has been the staple for these models. Found that it was too light to give a good CG. I ended up installing a 2208-12 1800 Kv outrunner from www.RCTimer.com
A TP2408-21 would be a good choice also. Still running the 7x6 prop does not overpower the 10A esc.
