Default RE: 1/2a speed plane wing design

CP - no doubt it is going to be a tight squeeze, especially when you want weight close to the nose. I have a 150mah pack that I have used with no trouble, even for long flights in gliders with more servos. But I certainly don't want to be taking any risks in a model like this. I may also use a lipoly, which would be smaller for a given capacity.

What size of tank do you run, and how long a flight do you get? With the little Blink delta wing and the TeeDee, I find a 2-3 minute flight plenty for the speed it does. I cannot begin to guess the fuel consumption of the G&Z (props are still on order!)

I should probably start this thread back over in the 1/2a forum anytime now.
