To fly this size aircraft you will need more power. You are using two motors but would run more voltage. I think you have to look at a 8-10 cell system for each motor. Figure an 8-10 cell motor system is good for 8-13 lbs. I think you could go with an 8 cell battery for each motor but would not go below that. This would give you still rasonable weight and very good climb power with a flying weight as specified. If this sounds Ok with you let me know if you want me to figure out specific motor systems.

I do need to know a couple more things. What do you think the flying speed of the aircraft should be and what do you have for prop clearance?

I am not an aggressive flyer more along the lines of the sunday flyer. I would proply only be doind a roll, inverted flight maybe and an ocassional loop. I would howerver like to have enough power to fly single engine if the need or desire ever ocurred. Speed id guess the top end about what a sixty size ugly stix would do low end typical trainer. Prop clearence dont know yet since the aircraft is still in transit to canada. Wont know for a couple of weeks yet.
