Thumbs up

Gino,When your talking about this plane remember it has a wing span of 140"!! It aint no sig kadet. Even if you get the plane in the 25lbs range your still looking in the 3000watts neighborhood.Another rule of thumb I use,is I do a static thrust test.This with the plane rtf.You want "AT LEAST 1/3LBS STATIC THRUST"(25lbs=8.5lbs static thrust) I use a simple fishing scale tied to the tail of the plane.Then I floor the throttle,read the scale,check watt meterfor amp draw and check rpm.If these #'s check out the plane has got to fly period!!!
