I see you mention a 4130/16 but then say you're going to install a 5320/28. Which are you going to install? You could probably cut down the weight by 1.5 lbs by going with the 4130 and 6s2p setup.

Since the wingspan is approx. 63" I'd say this model is pretty much the same as the .60 sized H9 P-47 which measures 65". The wing area on that one is listed as 727.5 sq in. The wing area listed on this model is 50 dm which works out to around 770 sq in. I'm not sure how they figured that out. But the horizontal stab shouldn't be included in the wing area.

Anyways at 5.7Kg or 12.5 lbs with a wing area of 770 squares, you're looking at 37 oz/ sq in wing loading. But if you use the wing area of the H9 P-47 you're really looking at nearly 40 oz sq in.

Sounds like flap territory to me;-)
