Okay, good - cause I'm not a quick designer. Just wanted to be sure I still have plenty of time.

Does that brushed 480 meet this requirement?

Motor: sp400 brushed motor with gearbox or similar brushless. Since this is a "trainer style" aircraft, motor cost is limited to $25 and should not produce no more than 150 watts

And remember, you are welcomed to send me in work pics and "spy" photos if you'd like.

I think the first entry has scared away the rest of the contestants.

Both first and second place prizes are pretty sweet. Definitely worth a little time in submitting an entry.

Not sure what's happening there, but now that you know you can PM me, just let me know what you need.

Thanks,

The sp400 motor has a 2.3mm shaft. Just measure your 480 and see if it is the same. I can't find a shaft size on the 'net.

Mines all built up, well i guess this will be my entry but yeah, got the 480 on it right now(tis' why i cant enter it in yet) its big though about 55in wingspan. But the tail feathers need work, broke 2 props already because of trying to trim it out, im thinking of putting the 2409-12 back on it again, that way it'll keep the battery heat down, and not much torque action and i can enter it in on this contest, it dont look bad but it'd look cooler with landing gear. Ill work on it tomorrow and post a vid and pics.

I dont know if that will be my entry its not a very smooth flyer, i wanted my plane to be a pusher so that it could save props but i didnt have any sticks for booms available. I was also thinking of encorporating ailerons, now i know ailerons sometimes arent best for beginners but i imagine if i gave it like the lowest rates(which how do you change that anyways?) even at full turn it would not roll upside down. Ahhh i know ill build a wing dragon kinda bird. Im having problems with my high wingers anyways for some reason maybe im too good for a trainer

Uh oh, sounds like we got some folks getting a little nervous. Nervous and scared now. That's a dangerous combination.
