What motor/ prop are you going to use? ....
I like the AXI motors. I was thinking about a 2814/16 which is a 1035KV which uses a 9x6 to 10x5 prop 3 cell lipo. It's listed for a 35-64 oz plane,sport/scale/sailplane/aerobatic. 3.75 oz. weight, 1-3/8" diameter, 1-5/8" case length, 4mm shaft diameter. High torque motors for models 35 to 64 ounces. They claim you can use a 30 amp ESC but I always found it's better to go larger. I have a Castle Phoenix 80 I am plaining to use. Maybe a little over kill.
My buddy has an AXI 2814/12 I can use which might work just as good. It's a 1390KV which uses a 9.5x5 to 11x7 prop, 2 or 3 cell lipo for a 35 to 70 oz sport/scale plane with a 40 amp ESC Same size and weight as the AXI 2814/16.
That's what I have lined up so far and I want to put a landing gear on it. Probably make it a tail dragger.

Yes I love my Super Fly's. I have one for night flying and one for combat.
My buddy is thinking about making his Mega Fly FPV
