1,448mm (57")
2,180 grams without battery. 2,500-2,600 with battery.
With a 380gram 5S1P battery -> 60grams/dmē - medium flying!

 - Electric Powered using:
   - 15" x 8" (380 x 203) Electric prop.
   - Turnigy SK4260-500kv 1,475w outrunner - LOTS of power for this model.
3D is available! Vertical is no problem.
   - TURNIGY Plush 80A w/ UBEC Speed Controller.
   - 5S1P (3000 or more) 20c+ LiPo battery. 5.5 Minute flights with full precision
aerobatics. This usage keeps the battery safe from over-discharge.
   - No extra weight added to achieve COG. Battery adjustment used for fine tuning.

Spektrum DX7 transmitter with AR6200 receiver (full range) with
4 x BMS 621MG standard servos - very nice and quiet.
2 Multiplex Mini HD Std servos for the ailerons allowing flaperon operation.

Beautiful, large, screw-retained canopy and hatch provide massive access
to all the inner components.
Undercarriage is a little light and does not do well in a heavy landing.
The wheels could be larger when flying off grass. Wheel spats omitted because
they fill with grass!
Very solid flyer.
