Well, the closest thing we've got to 2K that would work on this thing would be out E5-M-18.. It's only 1500kv though..

It with a APC 6x5.5 will get a pitch speed of about 71mph while pulling ~12 amps at 125 watts.. ~16oz of thrust..

Maybe I aught to try one and let you know how she does..

10-4, let me know. All the other meows are flying on 1500kv and they fly great, min on 2200kv is awesome. Try one of your motors and let me know, I bet it performs superb! Later, joser.

2200KV sounds like more my speed..

Here's the fin. The radius at the top is done using a french curve template, the long one. I have the plans drawn, now, I have to have them digitized and printed and we'll be good!

Mounting the motor in the"Cat".

1. Mark the area to be cut out for your motor.
2. Install motor block.
3. Attach motor.
Again, very easy. Your cg should be 6 3/4" from the front of the motor mount plate before the cutout for the motor.

I made a bone head decision to go electric on a huge Edge and have been dealing with that lately..

Gonna try and work on the Meow tomorrow, actually..
