Thanks for the extra info. I've been building less than a year now, so the more information I can get, the better.

If I could trouble the community for some more advice... A friend at work likes this design as well. He has an extra 1700KV Blue Wonder, and is wondering if we can make that motor work with this plane. He normally runs a 7x6 on a 2s. We're wondering if that motor will swing a 6x4 on a 3s without overheating, but still have enough thrust to push the F-18.

I built mine without regard to weight. It has 5 bamboo skewers, 2 3mm carbon tube wing spars, Hot Glue, KFm2 Airfoil, and a thick coat of paint. Without electronics, it comes in at 165g.

I'm thinking if we build it light, we could probably get it closer to 150-155g.
Add on a 24G Blue Wonder, 2 x 9G servos, 14G 12A ESC, 69G 850mAh 3s.
All Up should be around 280G.
According to a review on HobbyKing, the 1700KV blue wonder should make about 345G of thrust with a 6x3, so a 6x4 so be similar, I would think...

"GWS 6x3DD: 10.82v, 5.68A, 62.3W, 12.1oz thrust"

Thrust to weight is still greater than 1:1, so It should work, right??? Am I missing anything?
