Thanks a lot! Do the EFlites fit right in, or need to modify the wing?

Those Tamjets look VERY nice. Unfortunately, they are out of my price range. I can afford the eflite 25 - 46 retracts. I just hope that they will fit into the HK Hawk, which, btw, is drop dead gorgeous, except for that mis-placed decal on the vertical..

Good news is I got mine delivered last Monday and it is one beautiful model..
Bad news is she had her maiden today and didn't have enough power, and too tail heavy.. Got 3ft of the deck, pitched up and rolled onto the wing.. Repairable but upsetting just the same..
Setup was a jetfan90 with het motor on 6s, 5000mah no where near the power needed, thrust tests before the flight kind of told me that but since it was a bungee lauch i figured give it ago..so I'm gonna have to build a thrust stand to test what output I'm getting.. If anyone knows of a good build thread for one let me know.
I followed the manuals cog position which meant putting the battery as far back as I could, and all the electrics far back between the ducts and yet still had to add a lot of lead to the tail to get her to balance on the stand as per manual but flight characteristics point to her being tail heavy?
When you get your models could you let me know if you think the manuals cog is correct as she seems to be way to nose heavy with components in normal positions without landing gear..
Anyway on with the repairs...
I too wanted to put my p20 in this but conferring with my fellow flight buddies I don't think a p20 will have enough guts..

What was the weight of the plane and Kv of the motor? 6s at around 2Kw should fly this plane just fine. In the Jetfan I think it needs a 1700-1800 Kv motor. The rear CG however is not good, good luck with the repais.
