Yeah I'm going for CG colors and a very off scale design of the C-130. Well see how it turns out.

I want to see what yours looks like so get some pictures up. This is today's progress. Just need to hook up the elevator, place the nose on, and get some decals. Hats off to Ken for a great design.

I will try to get some specs on the out put of this swinging a 3x2 and a 3x3 gws prop.
Off topic but how is the gear in this little brushless P51? Price is right!

Unfortunately i built this plane and did not test the electronics. It flies with authority so i think it will work but i have no test data. I might rig up a pull scale just to see what it pulls.
