Default 55 inch pink foam yak

This is a leadfeather yak 55 epp that I scaled up to 55 inches and made it out of 1/2inch pinkfoam. I am running a turnigy 3 cell 2200mah lipo or two 1600 mah sky lipo 30C in series as a four cell. The weight is 42 ounces. the motor is a turnigy C3542-1000 outrunner motor. the ESC is an electrifly SS45D. Servos our very cheap mystery 17 gram plastic gear servos and pull to pull of the tail. It flies just like a 40% gaser.

Very nice Job, If you have any flex in the fuselage, add some 45 Degree stiffeners to it on the bottom, Take care and have fun, Chellie

Also I am about to get another motor for it to put with my new castle ice 50 amp 33.6volt esc. I am thinking about getting one of the following but I can't make up my mind, any suggestions?

I Like the
GForce G40 Brushless Outrunner Motor (50-45-890KV) if your going to be using a 3 or 4 cell lipo because of the higher KV, with the lower kv motors 600KV, you will need to use a 5 cell lipo
