A lighter motor may make CG iffy also,however as Groovejet says,dunno on this version,just going by my Skywing Extra 300.130g minimum on that one.

Did y'all see this on the 3dhs website???

"Use with 12x6 prop and 4S 1500-2200mah lipo for approx 700W"


Yeah, baby!! Now we talkin!!! 4S & 700 watts would ROCK and have some serious punch!

Are the control surface bevels pre-cut on this airplane?

- does it set on the hard side of flexible like 3M Scotch 6225N or the soft side of flexible like Uhu Por?
- is it safe to use with EPS (polystyrene) ?
- is it safe to use with Depron?

I appreciate any help here. Thanks.
Welder's is a Toluene based contact adhesive like barge rubber cement

I think I'm gonna try a Motrolfly 2815-950 on 3s with a 13x6.5 prop with some Savox SH-0255 servos.

I'm curious about lighting up this plane as well. I've wanted an inside lit plane ever since I saw that Acromaster at SEFF a few years ago.

Whatever that foam was, it would glow from the LED's inside and looked awesome.

I don't think EPP will do that, however. I may have to settle for external lights....again

You can turn the lights over against the foam and it will make it glow.

Can anyone flying this compare it to the 48" Extra? It's pretty new but I went on site to buy the Extra and saw this and now I'm stuck! I flew a friends 48" extra yesterday and thought I had to have it, that one flies nice!

Any body have a digital servo recommendation for this bird? I've been using all analogs so far, and I really want to make this thing perform.

I guess HS-5065MG would be the obvious choice... but I was hoping there might be something just a little bit cheaper but well respected.

Maybe I'll try these Savox SH-0350s

I used these on my 48" Velox. At 6v they were really fast and centered really well.
