My friend just purchased one from Mike Mueller at the Toledo and had it dropped off at my house a short time ago.

On my Etude I purchased the F3A battery tray and the new mounting kit that allows for battery tray removal. I installed the kit last night, best accessory I've purchased yet. My friend ordered the F3A battery tray along with the removable tray kit. If you ever have to work on the landing gear it makes life a whole simpler. For $9.50 it's a steal http://www.f3aunlimited.com/gator-rc...ket-kit-grcrtb

Hey guys I'm having a spring cleaning.
The Caelus which is better than ever quality wise is on sale with free shipping. Plus buy the plane and get a 10% discount on many of the items to equip it.
We also have a very affordable servo option now that can say more than 50% on that part.
The Caelus have proven itself as a very fine competitive well-built plane.
Take a look. Limited supply!!!

At that price it is worth duplicating.

The Caelus v2 flies even better than the v1. I was able to use the factory battery tray by adding lite ply strips on the fore and aft ends for reinforcement. The cg was close with the batts the aft end. Still a bit nose heavy for my flying, so I'll add 1 to 2 ounces of lead weight below the stab.

Sorry I can't help you on this one. The only bit of advice I can offer is F3A offers a great firewall mount that's fitted for the Caelus rear mounted motors, specifically the Himax.

If your in possession of the Hacker Q80 14xs I would imagine you could make it fit. If your pondering about what motor to use the Himax 210 is a great choice at a significant savings.

Big_G might be able to answer your question better, he's built three. I built one last year and flew it throughout the season and will continue to do so again this year. I've just started building another one for a friend of mine that I started last night.

Can't help on the Q80. All three of my Caelus' have the Himax 6330-210-pro. Love the motor.

The Q80 is a front mount motor and can be mounted on the caelus. There are probably several articles on RC Universe on front mounting somewhere. Also, check with some of your local pattern flyers in your area. They should be able to help.

IIRC, the Caelus comes with a carbon fiber front mount.
