Substituting motor. Eflite 250 or Hacker will be used.

Motor installation. This is a setup that allows easy switch between Lantsov and Eflite 250 motor.

1/32 in ply, again for simplicity. 1/16 square balsa in the y direction for strength. A drop of JB weld to glue to the ply plate Weight 15.5 grams, lose the connectors and save 2 grams. 13.55 grams (or such). Lose the stock motor wires all together and replace with magnet wire then save another gram.

I found that the 10x2.5 prop was too much for both the Hacker and the Eflite. The 9x3i is very nice. It's about a gram and a half lighter than the plastic GWS of ETOC years....

Overall good results in France which Joseph had ending in 15th but more importantly his own design which was designed for small indoor venues. He flew well. check for flight performance.
