lukeydukey - Have you got rud/elev servos in the fin?

Seem to remember on another forum, Tony Fu (Sloperacer) said he'd built a couple for people with the servos in the fin to help with CofG and then utilised the servo hatch for the rx and rx battery.

I'm currently half way thro. building a slope Typhoon and am planning on getting an electric fuse for it. Not after big power, something in the region of 600-800W with a geared inrunner and large prop for good efficiency. Want to keep the motor lightish as it seems to be an issue unless you split the Lipo pack to get it under the spar.

Motor choices I'm looking at are :

Kontronic Kira + 5.2 KPG, (205grms)
Hacker B40S + 4.4 Maxon (172 grms)
Mega 16/25/2or1.5 + 4.3 Mega GB (152 grms)

The Mega looks a good option - cheapest and lightest, but possibly the least proven.
