Could you post pics on how and where you fit the 4500 4S lipo? Those are great numbers, should get decent run time!

Its a clean fit,and only required the smallest amount of work to get battery in there.I also used 4 CF tubes mounted in each corner between front and rear half and epoxied all that together.The battery connects farther back as you can see.The receiver is mounted in tail all the way back.I still need to cover all openings,ill do that tonight.Heres some pictures..

Snow storms and sub freezing temps are keeping me from flying

Thank you sir.The absolute best part,is after that flight,I recharged the battery and I only put 1760mah back into it.That means around a 6 minute WOT flight!! And to think I tried to sell these motors and fans a few weeks ago...sheesh!

Great job Joe. Plane looks good and you are flying it like a wild man!! Sorry about your first one, but that`s the way to stick with it. I think yours is louder than my pusher prop version, but its hard to tell from video. We`ll have to do some formation flying when I get mine back in the air.
