ok so here is the semi-complete plane. everything is installed and operating. has 1:1 power at 50% throttle max current draw from all motors combined is 12amps. so im thinking minimum flight power will be around the 5-6amps range whih should give about 10-13 min flight times.. also plannin on upgrading to a 1300mah 3s if the maiden goes well.

AUW is 390g with a 1000mah 3s pack.

here are the pics of the semi finished job. ( the guy im building it for has the task of getting it paint ready )

Not to criticize you, but this plane needs motor cowlings.
Please

I like the slotted aileron and flaps!

i couldnt agree more.. they arent on just yet becuase of the maiden.. fittment of cowlings and all other "detail items" will be left to the mate i built it for.. maiden is scheduled for saturday afternoon

you'll notice the engine nacelles arent even carved at all..
