great planes .40 spitfire conversion


nice looking plane, semi-semetrical airfoil, about 54" WS, built -up, but not entirely sheeted. It LOOKS like a light air frame (that could possibly be made lighter) specs are 5-6 lbs. Any thoughts on motors? I was thinking Astro FAI 25g, Mega 22/30/2 (belt dr) or a direct Jeti 45-------I love Tom's Dewalt/belt drives, but i think too heavy. The price for the kit is a reasonable $90. Oh yeah, retracts will be involved!

I have the FW190. Have a AF 15G for it with a 3.6:1 superbox. Will throw a 3 blade 12.5-8 at 7K for 500 watts on 16 cells.

Will be a tad heavy, but with retracts and bomb drop it will be cool.
