Motor mounting hardware has been provided to aid in mounting most motors and the firewall has been pre-drilled for many popular motor options!

The airframe itself features a large wing to provide an incredibly low wing loading, perfect for 3D flying!

Great move AW, you need to go back to many of your older designs and apply this QB-L concept.
