The Top flite ARF manual rcommends a 3 cel and a 2 cell at 3200mah wired in series because of space limitations with the Rimfire motor. I don't think 3200mah is large enough... I am using a scorpion S4025-12 and will start with a 16x8 prop and may try a 16x10 . For batteries I am heading for 4 +2 cells at 4500 mah.

Yes 11 lbs all up weight is great for a painted and detailed aircraft.

I decided I am going with a servo in each horizontal stab driving separate elevators and plugged into different receiver ports. Will try and get pics tomorrow.
