Target was under 10 but its close enough!. motor is OS10la which should (just about?) manage it but I'm waiting on an 8x3 prob to make sure I get the thrust / rpm. There's .15 under the bench just in case...Wings are built thin (7/16 deep spar) and about 3 deg incidence. Now all I need is the weather - it driving rain and flood warnings here!

That looks great.
Nice landing gear.
