Good model Mark. I built mine just in time for 'building season' weather to hit Chicagoland, so it's still hanging on the shop wall. Mine's got an E Flite Power 15 lump, which on 3s around 2200mA and a 10 x 7 should offer 'adequate' power for starters.

My main alterations were changing to a topside battery hatch and mounting the aileron servos horizontally inside the wings.

Had a Four Star 40E for eleven years, though Maxim geared brushless inrunner motors were invented just before I got into bigger electrics. 600W out of a 20 cell nicad pack that weighed around 42 ounces. But no-one ever suggested it was boring to watch . Bet the new baby will be just as much fun.

My Four Star 40 had a full cowl originally. Love the 20 moulded cowling! My new baby is covered in SoLite.
