How in the world are you going to get a 12" prop on this thing Mr Lin?
The reason to use short props was consider less crash damage to prop during take off and landing.

Not to mention it's a tricycle landing gear. Which is no consequence when flying a fuel powered model that spins a small prop in the 1st place.

May be can use 3 blades props to get enough load, yet smaller dia.

Tommy,

I have been flying a large outrunner(equivalent of a .40) on a similar plane, I use a 10 x 10 prop which loads the motor similarly to a 12 x 8.

Hi Sebastien,

Would you post more pictures and your findings. You might be the first pilot who converts Win Wind into electrical bird.

Hello!
I'm going to write a report for a french RC magazine,
and yes I will add pictures here of the building...
Now the wing is done, I need more time to finish the fuse and to mount the motor...

Hi Sebastien,

Normally you have to glue the canopy, and screw the cowl on the fuselage. You do not have to cut the side of the cowl for the engine cylinder but you still have to try add more air cooling for the motor, lipo and ESC.

yes, I will enlarge the front hole of the cowl to let enter more fresh air into the cowl, and i will make an other hole under the fuse to let the air exit of the fuse...
I'm trying to find a nice motor mount for the 3020/8T, like this one "hyperion 30 motor mount" but the diameter of the base (65mm) is a little to wide for the Win Wind fuse (60mm large)...
keep searching!

PS : is it OK to use Naro Super D ??? (even with the problem mentionned here), else I've got 2 servos S3N STD and 2 S3T STD

Hi Sebastien,

CA, epoxy and GWS glue all work well on this, it's not foam wing, it's balsa sheets + film.

It's OK to use Naro Super D, the problem mentioned was that "Head Locking Gyro'' made some of the motor inside of this servo unhappy. You have to work on the plywood servo mount as it was cut for standard size servos, ie. GWS S03T or S03N.
