cowls are patched and begining to sand to repaint. two new monster power 60 engines installed. larger than the turnigy motors , so i had to adapt the stand offs. however i had great luck with the blue motors, use in a catalina and on other converstions.

Very nice. Can't wait to see her in her new paint. Have you flown her with the Monster Power 60's yet? Which HK esc's are those? I have an ASM Tigercat that I'm thinking of powering with the Monster Power 60's and some of the HK esc's on 6s 5000's (since those are the big lipos's I already have)
