thanks
Don't know what the max load is, but I added retracts, make a battery box, added pilots, still plenty of power while flying, not even full throttle.

Hey whatala,
thanks for the info, so stock motor fill take the load, do you think the stock esc will load it too (not getting to hot)?
what about the bending of the wings - can i leave them just like they are, or is it probably recommended to support them with a cfk pipe (possible?)?
thanks

The motor was still a problem after playing with it....so I bit the bullit and got another motor from Grayson........now she's good to go.

I installed a CF spar in the wing because pulling out of a dive I could see the wing flexing up and I didn't want to take any chances.

me too...although I try to refrain from high speed dives and pulling back up hard....as the wings seem to flap like a seagull.

In scale type flying I don't see a need to reinforce the wing, but if I did break a wing and crashed, it would be an excuse to try the J-power P-38...

So...my birthday is coming up. I have 3 Dynam planes already with pretty good experiences. Now that we have seen the various problems with this plane...would you still recommend it (those of you that have been flying it now for a while) I hate buying bad planes.
