OK, I think it'll work - the DF fuse from the MiG with Champ wings and tail and a dummy prop freewheeling up front
I have a P-51 motor still packaged... but I don't think it's the answer, I don't want more speed to get more lift, I like the slower more scale like speed I could fly my Champ at before... the only way is to get the weight back down. I just need to shave a gram here, a gram there... and dump that heavy circuit board (just the board, not the circuit)... I might have a solution.

Regarding the P-51 motor though, I asked a question about it sometime in the past week... no one has answered it yet... don't want to use it until I know the answer.
