That 17 incher only has a HobbyCity 10g motor on it, a 18g would be better.

The 20 inchers I'm building are for motors that weigh around 25 grams (plus) and put out 50 to 70 watts. I like reserve power........power is fun.

For the landing gear on my bigger ones, I'm going with this method.........050 music wire and 1 1/2" wheels. The wire is bent in one piece and also acts as a wing brace. It's hot melted into a slot at the base and lashed with button thread to a small CF tube that's glued down the bottom spline/fuse. Easy, LIGHT and super strong.
