Okay, Thanks Bruce. Another option is to only power the inboard engines. That way there would be less mechanism to have to use so that would save weight. I would then have two 7" propellers to power the reduced weight of the plane but I don't know if that would be enough thrust. With just using the inboard engines there would be just a tad more room for a larger pulley. I don't want to use a whole lot of rubber one, because I don't want a whole lot of stress on the fuselage, I'm thinking two loops of 1/4" for the maximum, and two, I don't want the motor run to be too short. I'll search for wooden pulleys with flanges. I'm sure I can find the larger rubber bands to use.
