Ditto! That would make it a great idea to purchase an extra wing. What did you do to make the center section there? This is really cool!

So far as I know, there is no such chart of equivalence. However, you can compare the power ratings in watts and the Kv rating to come out ballpark close, which is all a chart could do anyway.

If you're going to explore 3D you deserve to do it without fear. Your best way in is an EPP profile 3D plane. Chellie is your expert there and you can get in for way less than the Parkzone route.
