here are some images that may help you on your motor choices. BTW, I purchased the ARF version. The difference in price, I don't feel that I could have purchased them separately.

I have moved all of my posts. Sorry about the move, but out of respect of the Thread Starter, he requested it.

Missed the retracts part. Not sure, will have to do some research on that. Just with a glance, I would say Mains yes, nose is quite different and I don't think so.

Quick question about the flap hinges. Do they just get glues on flat to the surfaces? They don't slide in to a slot on the flap and wing like a CA hinge?

I wish I had a picture of them, but they are flat pieces of flexible plastic and on the sides at each end has tabs that protrude down into the wing and into the flap. Longer tabs for the wing, shorter tabs into the flap. Looks surprising strong. I thought it was going to be crap, but with epoxy holding them in, it works out pretty well. I could not get a good scan of it, but I posted what I have. May give you some what of an idea.

Mine shipped as 1lb as well... It arrived correctly and weight MUCH more than that, plus the box is HUGE.
