I am having second thoughts on the OS .26 for power. It might be ok once air born, but it may not make it off the grass.

I'm also looking for a different colour paint scheme that would lend itself to this "1930's racer". A little air brushing so that it stands out from the plastic covering.
I suspect the 26 will work as these things were originally intended to fly on 1/5 of a horse power. The 26 should manage 1/4.
For ref my 48 oz Lancer 45 at 60 inch span has a lively performance on an ols OS20 FS. It maintains altitude at 5,300 ROM on a 10x6. I set it at 5,800 for Texaco and it climbs almost out of sight over 9 minutes.
I don't know if any of this helps you but gives another reference point I guess.
Nice to see the progess finally.
