40 oz covered in Econokote red with white trim. The front air inlets are made from plastic spoons.

Originally installed BP Hobbies 2814-6 motor with four different props and 3 cell LiPos but too powerful. Yet 2 cells Lipos were too wimpy.

BP's 2810-11 with 2 cells were too weak, but a 3 cell giving 78 watts/lb with a 9x5 prop was just right. All together tried 13 different battery/prop combos. Persistence paid off, I now have an aggressive park flyer.
