Also have a 65A HET and 4s 3300mah battery to complete the power setup.

I've an MB1 and SAPAC knock off fan and feel it's a tad tail heavy but there's PLENTY enough room in the bat tray for even a 5s 3300mah.

Some tips maybe not in the thread

Use heavier gauge steering wire and secure steering servo well to prevent bending of front landing gear strut wire. I use the round servo arm cause it's always been the toughest and doesn't break on "aggressive landings"

Clear tape the rudders and lending edges of wing, it'll toughen them up 3 fold and wont add too much extra weight or hide the looks of the plane any. I did this to my Windrider F35 which is a low density light EPS and they haven't snapped once even though I've flipped it a couple of times.
