Totally finalized the PW build. I swapped the supplied motor with another 2212 with double the kv rating(2500). According to the seller should turn a 6x4 19k+ and produce around 24oz of thrust. For those builders that are inclined to mount a 400 or larger motor(2217) you will almost double the motors weight and cause the CG issues. The completed build weighs 19oz RTF. If this motor proves too hyper for the airfoil( a slow flyer) I will just swap out the stock motor and prop. CG double checked and is as mentioned right at 200mm. Am prepared to add maybe a 1/4-1/2 oz of lead as I like wings on the nose heavy side. I also added a second skid behind the electronics bay to keep the back out of the dirt also. Hope to maiden today or tomorrow.
