There are a lot of possible ways to do that, it would be cool, bt I think it would be very challenging. I would consider using 1/8" competition balsa profile fuses for the twin booms, and cut them to fit around the w3 rib. rudder servo on one boom and elevator servo on the right. you could use smaller motors spinning smaller props, and possibly go direct drive. for geared I would consider the GWS LPS spinning the smallest props they're made for. I would just make a little platform with velcro on the underside of the wing to carry the battery. You'll have to cram the receiver and ESC in there. This sounds like a challenging project for someone with a few years of RC experience. I made the mistake of starting with too-complex building projects too early in the hobby but I learned a lot more a lot more quickly. (e.g. my first project was to convert a guillows piper cub for rubber power to electric r/c.) Good luck if you try this project.

On the other hand it would complicate control systems. Can you tell I'm not much of an RC person? Home Page - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BugHLG/ --------------------------------- Yahoo!
