That should all work fine, The receiver should work fine as well.. make it from 3mm, no need to do 6mm unless you just want to.

Thanx Adam for wonderful toy!

Here is mine. 6mm for vertical part and bottom of the fuse, 3mm the rest.
Bamboo sgewers for spar and fuse reinforcement.
Motor and CC from HC as directed. Servos D47. Pushrods - alu rod.
3 cell 520 for batery.
I build it from the start with ailerons so I ahve no idea how it flies w/o them.
One can yank and bank this thing around with impunity. Very controlable in any speed...
The Best for New Year for you, Adam and for all others jet jokeys!

you are going to have a major problem with the plane being tail heavy, need to have the servos and esc as far forward as you can, and as far as the prop goes, id chose a smaller one. having the motor mounted that high may cause you some problems as well.

Ok! i am already using 5*2.5 prop so what size you recommend? and for tail , i am going to fly this plan with 3cell

please note red spot where i will put the 3CELL battery. i have to modify it if you recommed it, i think i am unable to move servo which is 3g each is that possible if i can move up esc and if you can point me where to ?

aqk you will have to put your battery in the area you indicated to achieve the proper balance. I use a smaller battery (2 cell 500-mah or 650 mah 2 cell) and it balances right where you indicated. The reason I had to shove the battery so far forward (like you're doing) is because I'm using a 19 gram HC 2500KV motor. I also use a 5X3 prop and get great performance. As a matter of fact, I fly it at about 1/4 throttle indoors. Any more throttle than that causes me to eat up airspace too quickly. It high alfas great too with the setup I'm using. Hope this helps.

The hatch

What do you Guys use for attaching and keeping the latch closed? I use a simple strip of clear tape for the hinge at the front and packing tape in the center rear that is stuck to the body to keep the hatch closed. I'm still not happy with the setup. Any suggestions Boys? Marty
