Thanks, Graham.

I could change the motor on the ST 350 easily enough, but getting it to balance could be a problem, unless the battery can be set further back.

Maybe I could reinforce the firewall on the 400 and fit a better nose leg instead though. I plan to use 3" wheels for grass on either of them, so it's not going to look perfect anyway. On my Parkzone Trojan, I did a mod I'd read about to strengthen where the nose leg attaches by just setting a block of wood behind that part. It stands out a bit, but I never notice it now.

The 400 is quite a bit heavier, from the specs, but adding a decent motor and a bigger lipo to the 350 would account for some of that. I like the fact that the 400 already has independent aileron servos. I guess adding the flap servos is no real trouble.

How do they compare for wing stiffness and general rigidity?
