Default RE: Dumas 1800 rc 35

Hi Greg, I have built this Dumas Waco. It is one of the better Dumas kits. I flew outdoors, but only in light winds. You can use 2- 9 gram servos, a 20 amp esc, and a small brushless motor of about 125-175 watts. I flew mine on a 1300, 3 cell lipo and the balance came out per plan without additional wt needed. I think that a power to wt ratio of about 60-80 watts per pound should work. I covered mine with litetex, a lightwieght iron on fabric material that can be bought in various colors. Good luck on your build.
