Semi scale Gee Bee R3 (potensky kit improved)

RobotBirds (Uk) sells this cute little EPP kit from POTENSKY.

The plane is already painted. There are no landing gears. Too bad for a Gee Bee R3!!!
Otherwise, the kit is nice. The right wing has an aileron, while the left wing doesn't have any. I've read on forums that it works, but i'll have two ailerons.

My goal is to bring some improvements in order to have a semi scale plane:

Add landing gears
Add flying wires
Replace the canopy by a transparent one
Install a pilot

The airframe is very light: 22g.I would like to build a light airplane, so it could fly indoor and outdoor.

I will use:

- a DT RX (the AR6400 doesn't fit in the narrow fuselage).
- 3 x 1.7g servos

I've got a Tiger 1302 motor and a 1 S ESC, but i think that the AUW will be too high for this little motor.

I also have a 6g motor and a 2S ESC that could suit. We'll see.
