    Way too much being made out of the p-factor discussion; or, at least much more than I had intended. Peace, guys. This is supposed to be a FUN hobby.

    RE: NitroPlanes - MQ-9 REAPER

    I've looked at these and a couple of others, but they all seem so short compared to what we need with this bird to get adequate prop clearance. I wonder if we put leg-extensions on these OEM...

    RE: NitroPlanes - MQ-9 REAPER

    So have you decided yet just which motor, ESC, battery, prop, and servos you will use? Will you be making your own cabling extensions, or are there some long-enough ones available on the open market?...
