It's an 1800kv, the 1400kv wasnt in stock, and I didnt want to wait any longer...
I have some props lying around, so I'll try some of them out.
I guess the wings will fly off this thing when I go WOT...

Did you use longer sticks inside the wings? They seem to be a bit short.

I'll post some videos when the weather gets better.
yep ..... dont worry about the short wing joiners ..... if you put 700 watts through this airframe the wing wont be around for the ride .....

I think the idea is you bond 50% of the wing joiner into one side of the spar and leave the other side free ..... instructions not really clear on that ..... I made up some full length wing joiners for my plane ....

Its a nice motor ..... its heavy though ..... your going to have to watch your C of G ..... I suspect the 2200 lipo is not heavy enough ..... did you mention using two of them? ..... that might work ok .... mount everything and see how it balances .... wonder if the motor would run on two cell lipos? ....
