That's what surprised me. I'm pullin' that much in my F-100 on 4s makin' 700-800w.
I think it's the short, straight shot ducting.
Higher voltage/lower Kv=lower amps. same or higher watts depending on Kv/load.

First coat of primer.
Surface prep turned out really well, could have almost gotten away with painting it as it was.
Just need to touch up a few blems, sand all the primer off and she'll be ready to spray.

I'm goin' way off the reservation with this one on the color scheme...

Thanks a lot guys.

It will be pushing it, but if the moon & stars line up just right I may be able to fly her next weekend.
A lot depends on warm weather for painting. Forecast shows only one cool day down here next week. ...and rain for the weekend of course.

...keep your shirt on.

It's gonna be quasi-scale.
Imagine if the USMC had their own airshow demo-team.

With your painting skills it will look fantastic. Hell I think it looks good in primer but looking forward to your chosen scheme.
