I'm using a "Blue Wonder" motor with a 2 cell lipo and a 1047 prop. Should get about 12 oz. thrust with a low prop speed, this should make it a fairly slow flyer. Just hope the surfaces are big enough, guess we'll find out!! Hope to maiden it at the Thanksgiving WOOF event this Sunday.

Looks really nice Greg. I like your idea of using epoxy and string to strengthen the spar joint. I think the "Blue Wonder" motor will be a great powerplant for that plane. That checkerboard work is top notch too.

Here is my latest attempt at another WWII warbird design. Still a work in progress but promised I'd post some pics so here they are. Any ideas on how to brace the wings? The plans call for a spar running horizontally through the "V" portion of the wings and bottom of the fuse.
