Ray built pretty much the same setup as you are planning a couple months back. You might want to check his thread. Couple of pretty neat innovations in there. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1621400
Today wasn't a good day for testing the CNC props. It was really windy. I ran it anyway but it topped out around 56 right before getting "aerobatic" on the front straight. After recovering I ran it a lot easier than normal to pull the packs down some more. (and flipped it again before it was over with).
Video is over in our WFMBC news thread.
