Terry update #2

So today I decided to do something with the terry. I sat down, grabbed the tools and went to work. I
  • epoxied on the firewall/motor mount
  • installed the rx (AR500)
  • a Proton-25 amp ESC (exceed rc)
  • glued in the OLD Hitec HS-81s that came with it
  • glued on the elevator
  • glued a extra support piece
  • installed the Elite 400 (3700kv)
and did some bench testing. The battery I am running is a 3s 1000mAh 20c Blue lipo. If you cant tell I'm broke and can only afford the cheap stuff. I don't have the exact numbers but its hovering at 23-24 amps and a 230-240 watts at WOT.

I'm having some concerns with the wing staying on. As stock nylon bolts 1/3 of the way back from the leading edge hold the wing on but not straight or tight against the fuselage. Im addressing that issue tomorrow, and going to put some paint on it so its a little less gray. I have a little work to do on it before I get it completely airworthy but its a lot closer now that I had some time to start on it.

Feel free to ignore the poll, messing around with the different options
