Thanks for your efforts.. Can you maybe let us know what the build spec is and take a few photos of the completed plane?

Be good to hear what you think about where you think this plane excels with from a design point of view and any weakness you see in the design...as someone who builds lots of planes - be nice to see what you see if you know what I mean

So much for an "unbiased opinion"

Hey long leng, did you manage to check if the 3dhs aluminum thumb screw fits on HK slick?

I thought that was a great idea so I checked and the aluminum screws diameter is too big.

Looks like an M3 screw, if so you can get them for computers. Just search aluminium thumb screws (Aluminum for those in the colonies ) on eBay. They come with two threads, 6/32 (course) for PC cases and M3 (fine) for holding in hard drives etc... You would want the M3 type (assuming the screw is M3).

I was having a mental fart day yesterday. by firewall i ment front of motor box to front of cowl.

And I have the same servos as JetPlaneFlyer (except my ARE the turnigy brand).

Looks like it will be a good setup.

After watching this and the other thread on this plane, that's a tall order, lol. Diarrhea of the mouth/keyboard around here seems to be pretty common...

Yeah they have bags of torque, so blowback should not be an issue. They are a little on the slow side compared to some but if you feed them on 6V they speed up a bit.

My latest plan is to re-wind a Scorpion S3020 1110kv i have spare down to about 700kv, then swing a 14x7 prop off of it on 4s.. Should be good for 900W or so. but it would require chopping back the motor box.

Edit.. just noticed the post after mine proved the very point of that Wyo69cowboy made.. you have to laugh

Sir, your post doesn't seem to be about this airplane.

I will be posting pics and specs after the build. Remember, this is a untested set up for Michael. Also by HK, Im not allowed to modify anything on this airplane.

No, just wondering why you criticize my posts, but then make your own posts that are not exactly on topic?

Tryin' to respect the OP's request; YOU like to make things difficult...

I'm interested in the build and the flying, but don't find the incessant need to nitpick and banter about every little detail in any way productive...

My bad. Interestingly, I spell aluminium and the spell check on my iPhone corrects it to aluminum. Never knew they had different spellings around the world. Learned something new today

Awaiting your thoughts on build quality and ease of build. Do let us know if you think it's a good idea to add some reinforcements to the landing gear mount area, particularly for mere mortal 3d pilots like me who gets 2 or 3 hard landings every 10 or so landings
