if i do that then i may use the same power setup as the mustang. so x2 will give me 250 watts. should fly with that setup. this one has fixed landing gear. if i can i would like to make it contra rotating props.

I get my props for the quad from here
http://www.micronradiocontrol.co.uk/index.html
cheap props yet the build quality is very good according to my balancer.

Here's a twin motor setup to look over jeff it goes into details for differential throttle it might be something you want to look at.

TANKS FOR THE WORDS,you must have been to the camp site i was at in dorset keith,bloody tanks were up & down the road all day & night & shooting on range,we were next to bovington tank base & range.i hate tanks then at 1am 2 police helicopters decided to hover over our site thought tent was going to blow away. Mad but still managed to fly radian,bongo,mini p-51 & t-rex 450. Very Happy

Future build is in the present pete Wink and only one thing to say its HUGE!
the elevator on this plane is bigger than some of my planes at 21inches it gives you an idea of how big this one is going to be.
I should really start its own thread...

Jeff the differential setup is done by linking the motors to the rudder control on the tx, when you apply rudder one motor speeds up a little helping you in the turn its not really needed but cargo plane as you see in the video is capable of prop hanging and the differential motor setup gives you that little extra control.

Paratroopers lol, a guy on the cargo thread used a big one on his and it got hung up the plane looked like it had a chute out the back, his motors could not pull it, did not end well.
