Top Model Albatros 2.4

Just finishing this one up. Very nicely constructed ARF from Top Model (as they all are.....) Here she is getting a CG check.







Gong with a 4S pack rather than the 3S to get a few more watts out of her. Looking at about 97W/Kg using a 14x8 CAM folding prop and Turnigy 3858 SK3 glider drive motor (840kv)

More watts for what, is not a hotliner...
Is overpowered, imo, 3850 960kv and 3s should be enough. I am using your setup, same motor and prop, but still 3s, to power the 3m BoT.

True, it's not a hotliner, but I'd rather have excess power any time.
