Viking ... SOG and sea plane

This one is a variation on my Vixen sea plane, which was a variation on the renowned "Polaris which was also a variation on the great "North Star"

I think the 850mm wing span should be a really smart flier with maybe a 1000 - 1350 kv motor and a 8/9" prop .. should fly really slow .. and fast too

Once cut out should only take one and half to two days to build, this type of model is a very quick build and I have simplified the position of the 3 servos for ailerons, elevator and rudder .. I expect it to come in at about 700-800 grams including battery

I am thinking

2 x sheets of 6mm Depron (1000mm x 700mm) .. or similar .. MPF
Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 3530-1340kv motor or similar
8 or 9 x 4.5 prop
Plush 40A ESC
3 x 9 gram servos
5 mm CF tubes in wing, horizontal stab and 3 or 4 mm CF in booms

This one named by Bob (birdofplay) "Viking"

I am away for a few weeks so I am trying to talk my good friend Bob into making the build .. go on Bob .. Do it
