I think you'll see a mix. Some guys will go crazy and some guys will do a quick and easy build. Normally I go crazy with cockpits and other details, but on this one I just want a relaxing sunday flyer like my Fly Fly F-4 that I love. Something in the 120mph range is fine for me on this one even though I know its capable of much more.

The only problem that I see with doing this project, is the temptation to over build it. Ya know what I mean, spend more than normal, try to make it something that it isn't.

Got to consider the ending cost factor, because as a mass produced kit, everybody and thier brother will have one, just like the HABU, or the Sapac models.

I think I'll gut out my SSniper of it's neu 1415D HET fan for this. Opening options of 8s, 9s or 10s. I never finished it due to some washout in the elevator. Just too many cool projects to waste my time on it. For sure I'll use e retracts.

Seems like a good choice.

What is the elevator setup on this plane?

I used to only use 82mg servos, then I saw that Flyboy was using 225mg. I checked out both and settled on 225mg. Same size, better servo.

Am I wrong?

Yeah, Tomcee you do seem to be a bit of a downer haha. If a guy wants to build a brick, I say let him. At least it helps others know how heavy they can go before the plane starts to suck! LOL.

Well It wasn't meant to him but ok

I don't think anyone sets out to build a brick but lets see how it goes? All I plan on is retracts. I have 3 different fans to test in this one and we'll see how it works out. What are most running for Kv and cell counts? I can go from 5 cells all the way to 12 cells but what is most popular in 90mm planes?
