That would be the 2W27 for high power with the EVO. Being a twin, If you use the 3W25, EVO, you will have 1220W combined and a total of 48A. A small 6s-3000 pack would be light. I run my RBC P-80 with this combe but on two 3S-2000-20C Zippys in series. Very lite and goes like stink on 610W.

Fitting more parts. So far I have not used any glue. everything is just dry fit to make sure it will work as designed.
There have been a few small errors but all easy to fix for production and nothing I cant fix by hand. Like a missing slot for the spar blade on one rib. The Dremel tool made quick work of that one.

Progress


Saturday I was able to spend most of the day going over the kit. Zeke has done a great job designing the B57. I found about 6 minor issues that can all be fixed by the builder but Zeke wants to make it perfect. There was one bigger problem with a former but again Zeke has it fixed now. All this was done by dry fitting all the parts. I did start gluing and final assembly and have about 20% done.
By next week end I will be ready to start sheeting and planking. Zeke is going to send pre cut planking for the fuse and nacelles. The wings and tail will get 1/16th skins. Time to order up some more wood.
The only part remaining to assemble is the right nacelle. I will build that and start installing all the servos and control for a fit check. Then fit the retracts and gear. Zeke designed it to fit the E-flite 15 to 25 gear

Really nice design work. I assume the box in the middle of the fuselage is the battery box?

I may NEED to get one of these.

Hey Nut..I wish I could hold my focus...just not going to happen....Its a Mig-25 FYI
Paul..that is a crutch for the fuse. evrything is built around it..the battery tray will insert in the front area that is open. The top half of the fuse is a hatch back to the front of the wing.
