I ordered the Ariane 2 from Monica at TFL Hobbies and it arrived Christmas Eve. Thanks Monica.
It is also available in carbon fibre.
Although I will be setting it up to race on 6s, I put a 4s setup in it to see how she runs.
As it turns out...very well I think. Very stable, & smooth in the turns.
This 4s set up is...
TFL 4092 2100kv motor
Seaking 180A ESC.
Haiyin 4s 5000 40C lipo
But with the battery on the battery mount it was very nose heavy & ran wet in its first run. So the pack was moved back to the motor where the ESC should be, & that was moved to the side.
After a few strut, tab & fin adjustments, this is a video of the third run of the latest addition to the 'Wet Track Racing' team. The Ariane 2
Just thought I'd share.

Nice run, though I think the hull can use the extra weight of 6S.
Is that motor 'just' 2100KV on 4S?
It sounds like a lot more rpm...
I tried to find the motor you listed, but the TFL site is very slow to load and I can't find any 'TFL motors'...
Please enlighten me.

Yes 2100kv on 4s. But only a small prop at an M445. But the TFL motors are one of the smoothest motors I've used. They all seem to really 'sing'
Like the TP Power motors, TFL have also recently changed all the Kv ratings of their motors in relation to the number of winds. The motor list I have is now out of date.
I did ask Monica from TFL to send me a new list but I haven't seen it yet.
A lot of things can't be found on their website so you have to contact them direct.
Monica is a member here on R/C Groups. You can contact here here, or direct at TFL.
Might try a 6s setup this weekend. TP Power 4092 1350kv motor with a 446/3 CNC prop. sounds like a good package. That's what's in my 41" Osprey that I raced last year. So in a 36" hull? Hmmmm!!!
This hull has heaps of potential I think.
All the best for the new year.

Have a look here -> CLICK.
Don┤t know whether TFL-US or China also has an 4092/2100kV motor.
But this one with 2200kV you can buy at Maik┤s Shop here in Germany.
