2010? That's an aweful lot of Phantoms for 2010. By then all the Phantoms had been dismantled. In fact, I don't recall seeing many Phantoms there back in 90.

What FM radio do you currently use? Does it have a module with the FM internals, or is it a fully integrated radio?

With that motor I'd use a GWS 4.5x3 (they call it a 4530), or a 5X3 (5030). That motor is very similar to what I use on my small pusher jets (I use a 20gr 2500kv motor), and the 4530 is the one I use...

Darius,

Welcome! Those are some neat looking ships you have designed. I really like the Black Diamond (I'm more into pusher jets than APV/FPV)! I'll have to take a closer look a that one.
