Esskay 400xt on a Stryker-Lite?

I'm building a Stryker Lite. About 10-12ozs. I'm not going for speed, just a floater that maybe I can use for training and some slow flying. I reworked the fuselage and added larger depron elevons for better slow speed responce.
I have several of the Esskay motors. I was think, which batt?? 2 cell with a 9" prop? or a 3 cell with a 8" prop? I'm running a Berg 4l, HS55 servos and have tons of 2, 3 and 4 cell lipos. So far, it looks to be just over 10.6 ozs on a 2 cell 1320mah lipo, Esskay motor w/ 18 amp ESC.
Anyone do a Esskay/Stryker? Butch

Come on, no one has put a Esskay on a Stryker?? I would think it would be a lot easier to fly for a beginner, because if you lighten it up, it will fly slower! Butch

OK I'll bite but this setup will really give you the speed and not a slow flyer.

400XT 7x5 APC E prop and 4S lipos!!! I seem to remember 70mph
pitch speed.

take it apart....terminate as delta...go 4s with a heavy pitch 5 or 6" prop and make sure you're wearing your distance glasses

I may make a faster Stryker later, but for now, I want to make it as more of a trainer plane and explore its slow flight capabilities. So I want to build it as light as possible for more of a floater. Butch
