Charlie - I've had a tear in the top wing since my first take-off attempt! I must fix it. Other than that, after 7 flights - not even a scratch

BTW - could you edit the weight a little of this beastie on your web-site? The stated AUW might scare people off! She is a little under 5 lb with 4400 2s fitted.

Just purchased the plans for this beast from Peter. Read through your great thread but could not find what kv your motor was or what size prop you were using. Do you remember?

Looks like a Turnigy 4250, 600kv, same as I am using on my 1/6 Rake Nieuport 17 build. I am using an equivalent .32, but the size and weight and performance is the same. Pete recommends a 14x 8 for starters on 3S battery.
