I need to prop down a lil i think 11x4.7 is just outside the range of the motor as stated on the website. I'm thinkin 10 5 but not sure if slow fly or just electric would be better. I have to figure some kinda water proof box for the batt rec. and esc and she will be ready for a wet run! If she does well I just might glass it!
hope it works out.....ifin it do you will have to make another on too

hmm maybe cut some vents and put some plastic over them pointing down towards the bottom so water doesn't get in well?
