Then remove paint / rough up the foam for epoxying the beams in ...





Motors in and beams secured also with wide head self tappers ..









Twin 50A ESC's ... one with red BEC lead pulled ... to a Y lead for Rx, I had to add a length to the battery cables as they were far too short ...



Unfortunately - I now find I have run out of bullets to connect the motors !!

AUW without battery : 442 grams

CoG with 2200 3S Turnigy or 1600 4S Zippy Compact is at front edge of finger holes ... ie spot on ! The battery is as far fwd as possible.

Once I have motors connected ... and weather improves .... the V3 Speed Sensor will tell us what this bay will do !

Motors are 2632 3800KV small heli motors, 4.75 x 4.75 contra rotating props (inward turning), 50A ESC's ...........

I have 5x5, 4.5 x 4.5 and 4.1 x 4.1 contra props as well in case ...
