The slow boat from china finally arrived with my new motors. I went with the 1306 motors I linked above, with 4045 props, they get a little warm on a 2s battery. Even on 2s the plane can hover at 70% throttle, so more than enough throttle. I had to re-build the tail due to hanger rash, and we added some wing tape for color. I also used 3m super 77 for the first time to install some logos that we printed out on normal paper with our printer - something I'll certainly be doing more of in the future. If/when I wind up building another one, I'll be scaling the nose to be quite a bit longer - I'm not crazy about how the props are out further than the nose on this one.

I tried to take a movie with my cell phone - it's not too great, but shows it has plenty of power now. Flown by my 10 year old son, who is getting to be a better pilot than me.
