I am going to use the 1000mA 3s Lipo so it should be light.

No pictures until I either get my old PC back or find a cable for this one but here's the breakdown...

EMax CF2805
20 amp esc
9 gr servos
AR6100 Rx
7.4v 1250mah Rhino

Using a TP 7x6E my numbers off the Wattmeter are as follows:

14.93 amps
6.46 volts
96.7 watts

AUW is 10.6 oz but I need to move the CG forward about a 1/2" before I fly it...I don't think it will take too much weight to dial it in.

I wish all posts where like this one.. Easy for somebody to come in and build the plane instead of begging for links or decipher names in google..

I wish I didn't need to add weight to the nose and could keep the 10.6 AUW .

Yeah if you went with 3s then you'd be good.
Get a CC 18 ESC (probably lighter too)

But this is a very cost effective setup for sure.

erozion looking at the prop data it looks like you are making around 8 ounces thrust which is probably not very much fun. I would try a 7x4 APC SF with a 3s and see if that doesn't work better for you.

Thanks smoke, I upgraded to the 2830-8ca motor with a 8x6 prop on 3s now it goes like a rocket.

Right on...glad you have it going the way you like now.

I ended up adding almost an ounce to get it to balance right so now my AUW is 11.5oz. I think I can live with it. Now if the dang wind would just quit blowing .

Is it necessary to add carbon rods to stiffen the wing? if so which thickness and where?
