The gear will cost almost as much as the plane itself...

Planning to put a Dualsky 5050 with 575kv in it, powered by 4s3800. Should be fine for scale flying, have lots of these batteries already on hand. With a 15x8 APC, power should be ok.

I use a similar weight motor and it balances nicely with the pack (6S 3300 or 5000) up in front of the servos.

You might find with that Kv and 4S that 15 x 10 will give you a bit better pitch speed, especially at part throttle, and a bit more thrust if you need it

Will try that, thanks. As mentioned before, the biggest concern is the ground clearance

About 1/2 the cost but maybe the best mod I've ever done to any plane of mine and it ( the gear) will last a lifetime with great resale value....might lose $30-$40?..if that... because I seldom see them for sale used. Fly safe!
