I have my Eva Sport fuselage almost 3/4 done.
^ good, keep us posted Wes.

I can see why that was confusing. I got completely out of RC for maybe 10 years after selling Mountain Models. During the period that I owned Mountain Models, I made a lot of good friends but then I disappeared. Thus the "I'm back" comment.

Wes, I was just looking at an Eva fuselage today. The Eva was intended to replace the Switchback and was my favorite design. I took everything I had learned up to that point and put it in the design. I hope you enjoy it.

Wes, the orginal Scorpion motor that was recommended was about a 480 size. So the 10 size motor should be fine. The 15 size would probably be overkill, although I know in one of the SBSr. threads someone put about a 500 watt motor in it. 250 watts should fly it just fine, and it should be outstanding on 300 watts or so. Looking at the specs on those two motors, the BL10 is a three cell motor at about 1000kV, and the BL15 at 880kV is probably better on a 4 cell battery, or a larger prop. I think you can probably easily fit a 12 or 13" prop on the Sr with the standard gear.

Come fly with us in Henryetta
Mark.
Both motors we're flown with 3 cell lipos. 30c 2200 3s lipos actually.
I have some 1800 3s I have in mind for the Sr.

Wes. I fly mine on a 3 cell 2200. No problem getting the CG right.
