Nice model, and a big one.
I am using a Monster Power 160 motor, two Exceed 4000mah 5s lipo packs, and a
Castle Creations 85hv ESC.
Have not gotten her in the air yet, I will update when I do.
It would also be a fine model for a 12 pound turbine engine.
Even though I put the lipo packs slightly aft of the CG, but I still needed
about 8 ounces of weight in the tail to balance, due to the large motor and the
long, long nose.
Good quality kit. Mine is fixed gear, but the plane is retract ready.
