As a long time lurker and someone who doesn't fly any more I just wanted to chime in and say how wonderful it is that this kit is still being offered. I have always wanted one of these and lusted after a mothership when I had the time but no space for it. Now, I have the space and I suppose I have the time... hmm. Please link the shop where you bought the kit. Anyway, I look forward to your efforts to get this off the ground.

If I were to do it, I would prop it for maximum thrust and perhaps 40-50 MPH. I think that choosing thrust over speed will will let you ascend easily do you can do what the wing does best: glide and swoop. Thats what I would do anyway. For a motor mount, I would look at the style offered by justgofly.com. Its an aluminum bracket in the shape of an 'L' and then make your own. Anyway, I wish you luck with your build and will be watching.
