To be more realistic...a stage2 xmods motor spins 30Krpm & that is variable right out of the box.Being from the very old school, I would find an old Balsa & Tissue paper de-Havilland/Beaver kit collecting dust in the back of your local mod. aircraft shop. The first one I built in'58 was free flight rubber band powered. The second(same kit) I went high tech with an .049 glow plug engine,with aux. tank & strategically placed by cheif(grandpa) engineer small lead counter weight or ballast & of course high tech control lines! If you have read this far & are still awake,the purpose to all this history is; If this well constructed & very light & strong aircraft will haul a vintage .049,2 full fuel tanks plus ballast & control line(heavy gauge wire) connections....then why couldn't the same time tested aircraft be slightly re-engineered to accomodate servo's,power supply,reciever & motor to make a darn fine indoor & outdoor aircraft! I think Stromberg may carry those vintage kits. Good Luck!
