Thanks, QB. I'm running a Turnigy 480 1020kV motor, a Turnigy 40A K-Force ESC, swinging an APC 10x5 prop, all mounted on a Custom RC parts aluminum motor mount. I also pulled out the stock RX and replaced it with a Spektrum AR600 RX. Powering it all with an Ultra Pulse 3S 35C 2250 mAh battery. The weak link might be the servos -- I kept the original servos. I also didn't reinforce the vertical or horizontals with a carbon spar but I don't plan to stress this guy much.
I haven't flown this yet, so I don't know how it will perform.
I hope to do the aileron mod in the next few weeks but I wanted to fly the current configuration first before I took the knife to the wing.
