I have decided to finally get started on my Pica Duellist 240 which I bought in about '92. The kit called for twin .40 nitro engines, so first question is size of motors, ESC and battery packs. From what I have read and seen, it should be a good electric flier, weighting in at about 8 pounds. I see in the wing build that I need to figure out landing gear and wiring before I close them up (Fully sheathed). Probably that will cause me to do the Fuselage first, modifying it to accommodate batteries or ESC. Plans do not show access hatch, so I need to create one.
Does anyone recommend preferred placement in the nacelles of batteries or ESC?
