The hole in that prop is 6mm... and a 2200 mAH won't balance it out without tons of FPV gear. It calls for a 40A but that motor calls for a 60A and people normally run 70As in them, and I might use a 11'' prop so I'm going with a 90A, plus I couldn't find a good ESC with decent reviews on the USA warehouse that was 70A.

I might sell some of the FPV stuff and fly LOS with this beast... and record onboard. I mostly don't go out of LOS anyways, plus I'll never run 5.8 GHz on a plane that's this big and can carry 1.3 GHz stuff!

Hmmmm... decisions, decisions..

Well I'm happy with the PopWing for now!

i did on one but it was a bit crooked. it MUST be perfect so it dosent vibrate. should have used the drill press instead.
