Howdy to one and all

Don't Ya Just Love GWS:

Just wanted to post some quick pics of my as yet not completed GWS Spitfire. I glassed the Fuse with 2.0 ounce fiberglass and the wings with .50 ounce cloth. I used sig weld glue diluted with water and it stuck like a champ. Did not harm foam and is as strong as my old surf board. Used Tamyia Colors for the paint scheme. Just need to finish up electrics and Battery pack. I am going to fly her like my Parkzone P-51 with elevator, aelerons and speed control the rudder is still fixed. Will Let you all know when graphics are complete and equipment is in. Right now as she stands with:

GWS 4Channel Reciever
two hs-50 servos 1 in the wing (aelerons) 1 for elevators
GWS 15 amp speed control with brake
GWS 350c motor with B gear drive 4.43:1 (From GWS)
Either a 9/7 or 10/7 prop ( pics are with 9/7 )
7 cell 8.4v 1600 mah Ni-Mh from GWS ( not here yet waiting for order)

Without Batttery my weight is 12.5 ounces on my weight-watchers160z scale

My question to those out there are:
Has anyone flown this bird with the GWS 350c-BS 4.43:1 gearbox?
Even though the battery by specs will fit in the whole provided it will also add 7.1 oz of weight. Has anyone tried this battery?
