Dave, is the Vamoose designed with a one piece wing?? I like the open motor design for cooling...what about the battery area...is it wide enough for the new LiPos coming to market...seems like the newer versions of the LiPos are wider (i.e., they have taps for balancing)...1500mAH are 42mm wide.

I've said it before but that is one beautiful design. I expect she'll fly like she's on rails. Keep those pics coming, Dave.

That's my little nod to the old gasser's....
In fact I think there is plenty of room for a ICE up front....

No reason to be confused Mike... I've attached a picture that I hope will clear things up. There is plenty of room for the new batteries I think. The standard battery compartment size is 2" x 1.7" x 4.5", but there is room to move. If you opt for mounting the rudder and elevator servo's near the tail the battery compartment can be extended to ~12" in length. The batteries in the picture are 3 x 1200 e-tech's.

Ron,

I've added some spec's to the original post.
I'll be experimenting and having the beta testers
experiment with different motor/battery configurations.

Very pretty design! Is it one aileron servo or two? I really like the simplicity of the landing gear.

Thanks Scott,

There are two aileron servo's.
The landing gear design is the
same as I did for my Sin-Naps.

How about a pic of the canopy? If it flies anything like the Axon... I make sure to get my name on the backorder list!
