It's lighter and much stronger. It does take longer to build but sooo worth the time. And only add's $1.00 to the cost of the plane
Hmmmm.... Didnt anticipate the paper peeling aspect. Perhaps I shouldtape all exposed edges then, as my plane is now finished, minus the motor mount...

WHICH LEADS ME TO MY NEXT QUESTION:

I've got 2 motor options and having never done a pusher before or ever used these tiny pusher props, I'm a bit stumped about which motor I should go with. I will be running a 3s setup, but could do either an 850mAh 15C battery or a twice and big (and twice as heavy) 2200mAh 30C LiPo. My propeller options include 6x4 pusher style, but also "could" include a 9x5 cut down to 7" or a 10x4.7 SloFlyer cut down to a 6 or 7"

Ideas? Do's or Dont's? Suggestions?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
