    Glow Engines: ................... 32–.46 2-stroke, .40–.72 4-stroke
    Wingspan: ............. 56 in (1422 mm)
    Length: ................... 56 in (1441 mm)
    Wing Area: ............ 714 sq in (46.1 sq dm)

    Just got one a month ago, and have installed a battery hatch up front. Figure on running either two 5S, 2200mah packs in parallel or a single 5S, 4000mah pack. The pack(s) will be Velcroed to the top of the wing. There is a new line of motors out ..BADASS motors.. available from either RC Dude or Innov8tive Designs (Lucien Miller). These motors seem to have a lot of power for their size and weight. I suspect their windings are able to withstand higher current.

      retiredVTT What is your AUW with the 5s 4000mAh? Are you staying with the stock scheme? I can't load your link, possibly because I'm in China.
