Been there, done that, but my brushed ESC is only good to about 14V and I needed over 40V in that set up.

But if you have that laying around, you can build a respectable (if somewhat short) set up...

I needed a really long (>50") bow to cut some wings but didn't have a suitable power supply. I connected 4 3s lipos in series and through a combination of the right wire diameter and length I found...

I'm gonna vote for Aloft Hobbies. I got one of the early Taranis Tx's. Wayne frequently went "above and beyond the call of duty" to support us early adopters.

Good looking airplane for just a "proof of concept" airframe. Looks reasonably robust too which is good.

I did a Do-435 semi profile to test prop plus edf once. It broke in half on the maiden!

Nope, sadly this will not fly by the contest deadline. I hope to get it airborne before the snow flies and finish it up over the winter.

Sorry to hear that you are dropping out.

One last thing to try if you have a mind to, try slaving another channel to the throttle and plug the esc's into two different channels.

More work on the fuselage.

I added the wing mounting parts. I used two 1/4" nylon bolts but also used a small pin and hole in a former just to help align the parts.
