I have been tempted to build a Dragon Rapide for some time this maybe the way to go. That is a great flying little airplane!

Gadily, what motor, ESC, and battery combination did you use in your Rapide and what covering was used?

I ordered my power systems today I went with the following:
2X Emax CF2805 with stick aluminum mounts
2X Sky Power 20 A ESC with Switchmode BEC (The 12A was out of stock so I went a step higher, I can always swap them later)
2X Pop Adapter with conical nut to simulate a spinner. (I would have liked push on GWS rubber spinner but those a hard to find)
2X APC 7X6 props
1X inexpensive 130 Watt Meter (Just so I have one. I have 2 electric projects now and I'm sure there will be more in the future so it may come in handy.)
