Also, I also am not going to use the stock props, gonna use some APC 8x6 electric pusher props instead on 4s. I am going to replace the ESC with a CC Phoenix 60 I have laying around and that should theoretically provide enough leeway for the amperage (though I will do watt meter tests before I fly of course).

Finally, I am thinking of painting a custom scheme and I stumbled across the glider attached below. I haven't found any other photos of this aircraft at this time (its been eluding my searches) but even if I don't, its not like this is a scale scheme anyway for the SSS, I'm just gonna make my own inspired by this one.

Sort of a modified Thunderbird paint scheme, but make the bottom of the wings look more like a seagull.
