Default Eros now has a pair of wings!!!

Really got to work on the wings this week and got them finished and covered. I built them in one piece, and finished the sheeting, so they were structurally complete, with alloy tubes built in to the centre section. When complete, I carefully bandsawed them into 2 halves, and covering each panel. The wings join with steel rods. The weight as she is in the pics, is 2.43kgs. The most confusing issue I have ever tried to get my head round now is the motor I have had so many different suggestions as for wattage and kv..I thought I would look at what people put in similar size piper cubs, and the E flite 46 seems popular, but very heavy, so any suggestions and help would be much appreciated guys! The wheel spats are being finished this weekend and painted, so a maiden flight is not too far away...(if I ever find a motor, that is)
