It's about the same weight as the NEU Dick is using - I would like something a bit heavier.

I ordered the Orion from the UK and should have it next week. I got 4 DS6100 for the ailerons and flaps and will probably go with HS-82MG for elevator and rudder. I already started working on the servo tray - can someone verify 37-38mm of width are OK?

I still need to figure out the power train to use. I really like MVVS 25 3.5/1200 - has anybody used it? The front of the motor is 36mm, but it quickly thickens to 37.8; can anyone verify it will fit? It is a bit heavier than I would like (168g), but still OK.

I plan to have a 60A just behind it, along with a BEC. The battery would go behind these (planning for a 2200 3s). If all this balances OK, then she should fly really well at around 1550-1600g with a 11x7 prop at 40A and it should still be possible to have a 10x7 both for 3s (around 35A) and 4s (around 50A).

I really need to decide on the motor and order it by tomorrow
