**Finished!!!!**Just finished installing everything, programming the TX (throws, reverse, dual rates), installing the receiver and binding it, hooking up the servos, connecting Charlie.

Math Class: Now Students, sit down please.

Total weight 33.2 oz (2.08 lbs)

Total watts Zinger 8x6 3 blade 180 watts

Total watts Graupner 9x7 3 blade 260 watts

Total max continuous of the motor 320 watts

Total max burst 370 watts

Calculations:

Battery 3S 2200 25C Venom Power, motor Supertigre .10 out runner

Zinger 8x6 3 blade 86 watts/lb

Graupner 9x7 3 blade 125 watts/lb

Max continuous 153 watts/lb

Max burst 178 watts/lb

Better than I thought. Will maiden it with the Graupner 3 blade. It will draw 23 amps max on the 30 amp ESC. It should not get too hot since most flying is done at 70-80% throttle.

MaidenFest here we come.

The result is better than I thought. A tough but rewarding project.

Will assemble it tomorrow, pretty it up and will post a "finished" photo.

Thanks for bearing with this post.
