I have a MM Hellcat kit in the "stash". I'll have to get to it one of these days. Given the 7-8 oz weight, I'd think a Blue Wonder on 2S with an appropriate prop would be a good choice. Only issue...

Mark, could you take another look at the firewall placement vs. the manual and/or plans?
It looks to me like the firewall has been rotated about 90deg from where it should be. The large hole for...

I realize it is too late to help at this point, but the issue with the availability of the Tyro 150 is the cowl. Brian has all the parts (probably cut and bagged), but the person who did the cowl...
