I built it from 5mm Depron.

You guys manage to find materials that I can't get hold of... :-(

Anyway, I have a "too big" motor on there. I first had a smaller motor but it wouldn't run properly. Apparently I broke a ball in the ball bearing on the maiden of another project. :-(

Now I Have a 5" prop on this motor (C2409 from HK), which people claim should be run with 9" - 11" props. Will I be able to fly like this or do I have to make a larger prop fit? The plane+battery weighs 288g all up right now.

The advantage of the 5" prop is that it doesn't reach the ground, so I don't have to make a landing gear.... :-)
