Ok .. while checking her for possible dragging to flight line on Saturday .. I took off wings and checked installation ... once I turned her over ... I realised that it may be possible to use the exhaust area to carry a LiPo ...

The cowl had been cut extensively here because air flow was extremely poor and engine suffered ...
With careful decision of what motor / Lipo combo .. it may just work there.

So guys and gals .............. what to put in ... try the 5050 and a 4S / 5S or what ?

At present she has a 10oz tank up against firewall .. a 4 cell 2200 NiMh pack behind the tank and rest of gear is placed about centre of bottom wing.

Her AUW to fly is 2.8kgs on a 1160mm span
