I can see why it took so long to design. Among other things the flap block allows you to either glue the flaps closed if you don't want them, or they are pre-hinged if you want to use them. Tricky bit of engineering, given that it is a split flap. The instructions call for a max of 40 degrees deflection.

Thanks for the kit pics, sfluck. Much nicer than mine.

I have hit my first snag. The MP46 is just too darned big to fit. Looks like the 32 is about the right size, but everybody is out of stock, even eRC. I have an EMRC 670 kV motor that I bought on eBay a lifetime ago. It specs okay, but I know nothing about the motor, its reliability or anything else. It says it's good up to 1000W, a claim of which I am extremely dubious. The real issue is whether the FMS prop will fit. Guess I will wait until my order from pw-rc arrives. I thought of just fitting the FMS motor and running the lot on 4S, but of course everyone is out of the FMS motor as well, Sheesh.
