33" Blu-Baby Help!!

I'm in the process of building a 33" Blu-Baby with a kfm3 wing. I would like it to be slow but enough power to fly outside with no wind.

Any feedback on the following set-up would be greatly appreciated:

E-Flite Park 250 brushless outrunner
480mAh 2-Cell 7.4V LIPO
6x5 prop

I'm also guessing an E-Flite 370 outrunner would overpower the foamie.

Jeff, your stuff sounds perfect. The 33" BB doesn't need much power to fly well and the 370 would probably tear off the wings (lol). The KFm3 can handle a fair bit of wind, can fly pretty slow but not generally as slow as the undercambered 4-40 wing. That said, you can slow it down enough to be pretty docile.

Thanks Tony!!!!

Would the same set-up work on the 44" if I were to change the battery to 3 cell?

Should work fine on the 42" too. The original flew well on a GWS 350 (c) so your motors should pull it around fine. The 370 with a KFm3 wing would be a LOT of fun.
