Default Looking for 16 inch or smaller 3D plane/motor combo

I am looking for a small 3D plane and motor combo, would like it to weigh less than about 3 ounces
wonder if some place sells a kit or plans for a light weight system.

Well I'm working on such a thing at the moment!

It's going to be an EF Yak 55-SP scaled down to about 14" span[8D][8D]!

The RC gear is the new stuff from DWE, though you could use the stuff from BSD but why I went with the DWE gear was cuz I wanted the lightest plane I could get and also it seems that the DWE gear has a slightly better power to weight ratio.

When it's finished I will post back here or/and start a new thread with more info

BW!

Greg.

BTW. I've attached a few pics of the DWE gear, Enjoy!

We've actually got a better motor now and have improved the servos. Here is a thread that has a link to a video we have of the prototype gear.
