Nice one sam, should be ready to fly very soon m8 good job on the build.
What motor/prop combination did you settle on? looks like a 1400kv motor? prop?

CG setup is on the step on the fuse bottom, a little aft will give much better high alpha.

I managed to get the CG right with the battery position, the motor and prop are just what was lieing around Laughing you can see it in this picture http://postimage.org/image/uyxhzj99z/

It gives plenty of thrust, not sure how much current it draws but it has a 45 amp ESC in. Enough thrust to blow some tools off the bench Twisted Evil

Btw my wings seem a bit floppy

Thats a bright polaris sam you have no fear loosing sight on that one.
I meant to ask before, Is this your first depron build?

Cracking job on the covering sam, looking forward to seeing it fly.

Well Congratulations are in order Sam for your first build you did an outstanding job. The rule with the polaris build on rcg is if you build it show a picture.




I added a link on my post to here anyway Laughing So just as good in my book
