Mom's,
I used HET 6904 fans and HET 2W25 motors. Sold by Electric Jet Factory. Running on 3 cell 3800 mAh pack per side. Pulls 65 amps at full throttle and puts out almost 3 and 1/2 lbs thrust each.

Rick - thank you for the details. Are you using 70mm fans? Also, are these motors in runners or out runners? I checked the site and could not locate the specific motor. Please bear in mind that I have still not received my 737 so some of these questions may be answered once I get my manual and etc :-) I am just trying to get it all ready for my build, buying the extras required and etc. I also know that this forum is a wealth of information and I will be reading a lot. Meanwhile appreciate any details you may have for my electronics, including motor Kvs and etc. Happy Flying!!

Those are 70mm fans, and the motors are inrunners.

Im running 2x BL3200 inrunners with the CS 70MM 10 blade fans and it pulls right around 50 or 60 amps WOT...doesnt produce as much thrust but it sounds really nice!

Is there a reason you guys use inrunner motors?

Long can inrunners produce more torque and are better balanced than most outrunners. CS10 fan needs all the torque it can get.

Status update:

Last night made final sanding on vertical stab. It is ready for paint.
Sanded and placed second WBPU coat on horizontal stabs. Will sand them today and they are ready for painting too.

Next big task is preparing wings and fuse for painting. I think I figured out how to make nice and scale looking flaps. Need four more servos...

Have you guys check airfoil on horizontal stabs? It is up side down, like on real plane to create down force when flying. Way to go Ming! Very scale!
I am expecting mine any day now. It would be great if one of you guys would advise on the setp by step procedure for applying a WBPU coating and painting. I have read many trheads but none really explain it.. Alternatively please guide me to the right resource. Thanks so much.

Captain MoMo... I just polyAcryliced my P47. it is made of balsa however. I used .25 ounce fiberglass cloth. Go to YouTube and google "Pimp My ARF" He has about 12 videos that will explain in depth how to use WPBA. I used acrylic, not urethane as he did. Not too sure of the difference. I used 6 coats on my P47. Looks real nice and i bet it is lighter than resin and it sands easier too.
