Before I placed the order for these PTMs I had a chat with Chen about them , the only available kits were the 280 motor versions , but he actually told me most people ditch the brushed motors and fit a small brushless set up ( I have just received an Emax 2805 which will be fitted this evening to the PTM I am building), but they are the same kits as the old ones only without the IPS motor /gearbox ... pretty little plane,I am enjoying putting it together and modifying things like the landing gear, using cocktail sticks as tailplane struts, and reinforcing the very flexible cabanes and struts using macdonalds coffee stirrers... just trying not to get too serious about the finish..... good for relieving stress I think. Hope to have it flyable by sunday for local model club open day

these are my pico moth build pics
first picture shows the 280 set up.... not really what I wanted
2 Emax 2805 and 1/8 ply bulkhead for a bit of strength
3 steel rule used to eyeball the tail feathers
4 using a spare GWS landing gear mount, thicker wire should be a lot stronger but has to get the front wires and cross wires fitted
5 struts and cabanes reinforced with coffee stirrers .....rigid
