Since then, I have refined the 32" design even more to use a 24g Blue Wonder motor, a 10 amp ESC and a 3S 450 mAh pack. The whole setup weighs around 8 ounces.
How do you like the setup you are using? Is it as floaty and controllable like most 8oz foamies?

BTW the lighter setup made all the difference in the world. Now it flies as it should, not too heavy, comes in nicely, harriers at a crawl.

I was thinking about making another 28" a 4d with the efliteVPP setup, 5g servos 400mah pack, superlight weight. Wouldn't mind a slow indoor flier since we can't seem to get winds lower than 5mph here.

The 36" is cut, just needs some paint and a dab of epoxy.
