Hobie14, do you think the foam hinges will hold up or is a mod in order?

They look fine but if I had any doubts I would go over them with a hot glue hinge ...... you would hardly see it and will add great strength ...... there is a trick to doing this correctly so if you dont know it just ask ....

I'm just wondering if fifty to a hundred new HobbyKing EPP FPV planes, at least, are going to be hitting the skies this coming weekend? ......

It's a motor I've used a lot for glider style a/c ...... it's 200 - 240 max watts on the EPP FPV so it's not going anywhere fast with the plane fully loaded, but then it's not a fast plane application ...... if I do need more power there is a ton of room on the rear firewall ...... I'll get some full power video to show the motors performance next time out ......
