My modified Aquila has gone through couple of motors, had e-flight 10 and currently 35/36 1100 ( same as eflite 10 power-vise ) I used 11/8 prop
Total all up weight with 3s 1300 65c is 40oz. Servos and Rx are under the wing.
I cut the nose off, reinforced with balsa blocks from the inside, and then carved out a space. and rounded the nose down to the spinner. Then I fiberglassed the outside ( about 4" back from the firewall ) with ultralight glass cloth and epoxy, with ply firewall. The nose is tight so there is not much to see unless I remove the motor. I am going to try 12/6 prop on it, or the next motor is going to be e-flite 15 if not enough. I just want 30 sec to 200m comfortably, I do not need a rocket. I will do more testing after the snow goes away.

Any chance of seeing a close-up picture of the motor install?
