here you can see the air intake, battery slot, new prop etc.
As I held it in my hands I noticed the motor mount is a bit loose and needs attention.
Next week Lord willing I'll make a start on my next NB.
-Will probably have..
-1x Blue wonder, 10" prop and 2 cell 350's
-Depron box fuselage, all gear inside as usual.
-Bottom side..small rear fins for added directional stability.(maybe)

"-1x Blue wonder, 10" prop and 2 cell 350's "
What kv is that BW?
What pitch on the 10" prop ?
Seems hard to believe that tiny motor can swing a 10" prop and not burn up.
I have a BW 1300. I'm still experimenting with 2s -3s, 8" - 9" props.
Thanks for the pictures. I really like the clean look with servos , ESC and wires hidden.

-GWS EP Propeller 10x4.7
-Like you I've also used 8-9" props till now..but..
- On this prop I believe it should be pulling a max of 6.5 Amps, giving 11.5 ounces of thrust on two cells. 3 cells would be too much on this prop.
-This 22" is such a light floater that the battery lasts ages, in the end I land the thing out of boredness, most the time I only use one or two of my four 350's batteries when I go flying
-Yep, me too, I dislike all those bits and cables hanging out of our foamies, hence my fuselages lately.
I forgot to mention that my next Depron NB will incorporate interlocking tabs on the fuselage panels, rudder/s etc
I think it will be quicker and easier than making the fus out of pink foam and having to hollow it etc. Even the battery will be inside , with a hatch for access.
