What power setup are you planning to put into it?

The motor is a g-force 2212 2450kv 40 amp esc and starting with a 6x4 prop and may also try a 5x5.

That should cruise quite well.

Man I tried getting my cg down for this thing and man I was terribly tail heavy I moved the wing back 2 1/2 inches and now the cg is going to be possible. Glad I figured that out before the maiden.

Ok I relocated the wing and things balance out now to get my control surfaces and electronics bay going.DT pylon racer relocated wing.jpg

I have been going over the plane and instead of using just hot glue for the wing I think I will use foam and like 1/16 bass wood and nylon screws and blind nuts and there is going to be carbon fiber rods on the wing because if this plane flies like it should I think there is going to be a good amount of G forces on this airframe
