I build by leaving the paper on. The strength you gain is the real advantage here. A good quality foam board will help with the paper peeling off quickly.

There's too many options! I have more experience with LiPo batteries than LiFe.

Have you used the Kingtech Factory pack?
Have you used NoBS batteries?

Hey Johnny,

It would be best if you can fit a 3 or 4 cell LiPo of at least 4000mAh in your hull. If so then you would be looking at a 2300kv motor on 3 cell LiPo or an 1800kv motor on 4 cell...

I had the same question last year with a hull a bit smaller. I agree with the above, using a drum servo over the arm servo. You will get better strength performance not speed, from a drum servo. This...

1600-1800kv is not a bad choice for 5s LiPo. The motor just needs to be larger in physical size to handle the excess waste heat you are producing with that prop load. Look at a 39mm x 74mm can size.
