Welcome to RCG.
I am finishing one of these also.
I had a Predator that flew ok on its maiden then the next time I went out on a gusty wind day and ground looped it and damaging the nose.
My F86 will fly without retracts as I did not see how to fit them in but I have a set and will mod it later this winter when the conditions are less conducive to having fun.
The setup is a Midi, Nue 1415 1.5Y on 8s ~2.5Kw. Seeing the ducting that FlyBoyTha1 did that will also be a winter job, for the moment it will use an inlet lip. The empty weight is 3lb 12oz so it should come out to ~7lb.
Thanks for putting the video up for us. You have been a good ambasador for Nitroplanes.
