Thanks guys.  It was a fun build.  Tonight I will start the post on building the Guillow's DC-3 with a huge 34.5" wingspan.  Motors will be E-Flite 280's.  I ordered the ESC's today.  I already have the motors.

Hi @Frank v B

Don't forget to install a sponge crash pad on the floor of your shop to handle any spar-with-innocent-mounted-motor impacts!  ;D

re: my earlier comment "I will use a Berg receiver, essentially an electronic wart on a wire and weighs next to nothing."

For those of you who missed RC's middle ages, below is a photo of a 4 channel Berg receiver next to a quarter.
