Thank you for the nice comments, and I'm pleased to hear that NITRO has made some changes to their original design.
The NITRO Crew sure has devoted a great deal of effort to accommodate the Hobbiests needs and wants. This is
very evident when you look at their web site, www.nitroplanes.com
, which is constantly changing and upgrading.
If your Predators flying weight ends up to be around 32oz., with your motor producing 280 watts.........you will have
140 w/lb. and that will be just fine! I would suggest to go with a 35A ESC, as opposed to a 25A, just to be on the safe side.
Have a good time with your build and, for sure, let us know if you have any questions.
