I am running Hyperion G3 10s 35c 4200. I think this is overkill for this model.
I may consider going with a smaller motor and less cells to get it lighter.

Richard,
Lovely, I want one at $449! Pity I don't live a bit closer....

Could you tell me what spinner you are running on it please?

Regards
Peter

Hi, the dummy engine and spinner are from the great planes super stearman.
This really is a great plane for the money! Gets an awful lot of attention at the field.

Georgeous! Questions ...

1. Is that battery hatch already built in or did you make it?
2. What's your AUW?

Hello, the battery hatch is stock located at the top of the fuselage between the wings.
The next time I put it together, I will have to weigh it.
I forgot to mention, that The Howard DGA won an award today for the "Best Civilian Scale Airplane"

Thanks, I really appreciate that, but after all, this is a stock model and every
one is like this right out of the box.
Maybe later I will start to add some scale details while I enjoy this airplane.

Hey Richard,

How is the setup of this bird at the field ... is it relatively quick ... I imagine that those struts etc might be a bit fiddley?
