The boom does indeed go to that point or rather slightly beyond as there should be two small holes at the end of the boom for the screws to screw into.

That 2200 kV motor should do fine with a 7x4. A 7x6 might overload it.

In its current form my much modified Wing Dragon can manage 30 minutes cruising gently or as long as you like if there are thermals about! This comes down to about 8 or 9 minutes if you fly hard.

In its original form it had a heavy brushed motor and equally heavy 9.6V NiMh 1000mAh battery so its flight time and performance was very modest in comparison - never more than 5 minutes.

The Wing dragon configuration really suits my rough flying field with its long grass so I have scratch built some variations.

Do you know the likely weight of your FPV gear?
