Default Park zone Polecat mods

I bought one today. i added a thin carbon spar and little bit of carbon on rudder and elevator.
Stock airframe no radio or motor gear and is 17 grams after mods 19 grams

i am working on installing a Eflight 180 2200 kv with a 1 gram 2S 3 amp speed control. it has the specktrum 6300 reciever and three Blue bird 2.5 gram servos. the battery is a 2S 200 mah 15C Will get more latter also looking at a 3S 200.

on the scale now i am looking at 48 grams.

this is about 2X the power and only 12 grams more in weight. i hope to hit around 50 MPH with it. 3 s should hit around 65 MPH

i am thinking of also getting the 180 3000kv motor out of the micro stryker for more rpm.

I forgot to add the prop is a graupner 4x3 cam speed E prop repitched to just over 4" pitch.

will add some pics tomorrow.

50mph?
and 65 on 3s?
if you see 50mph on 2s your 3s runs should be mid 70's

if you get this flying I would love to see a video of it with that motor
