Which version are you building?
I built the 4 ch and i can tell you that the wing spar is not strong enough, you have to add carbon fiber spars. In my case i added a couple of wing struts. Same happens with the tube of the fuselage, you need to reinforce in te union with the main body. Mine in the first landing at the moment of fairing bent when touched the ground. But anyway its a great flyer.

I would post the URL but the system says I don't have enough posts.

This is the description: Flite Test Explorer Speed Build Electric Airplane Kit (1447mm)
FLT-1028

Also which motor option is best - B (Motor - Radial 2212-1050kV) or C (Motor - Radial 2218/1180kV )

Appreciate your input
