Thanks to you all for your kind words and interest – My thoughts so far on this build are as follows:
I will be using 4 x 10g 18mm 1800kv outrunners with 4 x 6A ESCs and 3 blade GWS 5 x 3 props. I have studied the kit parts and plans, and to be honest the quality of the balsa and moulded plastic parts is good. I was planning to have the two outboard motors on one circuit connected to a 2 cell lipo and the same for the two inboard motors meaning 2 batteries – any advice on this would be appreciated. I am considering installing mechanical retracts – Irvine produce a neat unit F-IRV011 – but is the additional weight going to be a disadvantage? Any ideas on what the AUW should be on a build such as this? I will be using Spektrum DX6i radio with Super Tec Naro servos.
