This is my thought as to why. The Eflight 110 is a very big motor. good for 12 to 15 pound planes. The ESC should be larger than spec'ed so if elite says 80 amp,go 20 higher to be safe.[If it was my plane I would use 100amp esc]. You'll be turning a 17 to 18inch prop and the power 110 battery should be an 8cell pack. Don't be shocked at the weight of this as your power setup is very much like what general hobbies suggested. in fact your setup is good for a heavier plane than what your building. the Eflite 110 is going to have a lot of torque on those bolts and a noseover landing while the prop is spinning is sure to knock them out of alignment. Just a suggestion.

Heres a goof, my great planes rv-4-40 has a cowel very much like yours.....

So you think the blind nuts would hold better than the double nylon locking nuts? Do you think I need the standoffs as well?

I bought 2 - 5000mah 30c 4S batteries to link in series and I also bought an APC 18x10 speed prop, 100 amp castle ESC.

I thought I would use velcro on each battery to fuselage (stops sliding) as well as wrapping velcro around the batteries through the frame (holds them in place).
