I am at 16 to 17 oz on a scale. Just RC parts & the foam plane parts & with a 3C 2.2 amp hour Nano tech battery.
As I recall those 12 mm GWS motors were not thrust monsters.
I should be getting about 4 oz from each motor or 16 oz of thrust total. The plane looks " draggy " ? Is it. ?

The geared motors using GWS 4" x 4" props do a static 11,800 rpm. So the takeoff speed is about 40 mph

Does that set up provide enough power for add ons like the operating cargo door.
How does your plane do if only flown on R E M ?
