Nice job Paul!:)

And a big thank you for flying out to Orange to pick up the squirt....It was very special, and a real highlight for me. I had no idea you were flying in.

Thanks to both you...

The key here is this:
You can only lose points in duration.
You can only gain points in speed.

One lap counts as ten points. That's 10 seconds in duration.

I would put a Multiplex 480 4D w/ 4.4 gb., 13x8 prop., a 45 amp esc. and a 3200 3s lipo in it.

It fits, it's inexpensive, and you can put it in a 60 in. hotliner in the future.

You need 300 watts per pound. Minimum.
With a 2100 lipo.(assuming 20 C at best), You'd be lucky to get 400 watts without puffing the battery.

Nice plane!
I don't think Bob sells any other type.:)

Dymond servos!? Nice. I thought there was a production issue with them?
