I've been doing research on the wiring for a twin motor, 1 battery setup. The 1806 motors draw about 10-12A for a 5x4.5, so the total current draw from the battery is about 25A. So a minimum 1500 25C should do the trick. Assuming my logic is correct that the ESCs are in parallel and the same voltage is applied to each motor. And it's also preferable to extend the motor wires rather than the ESC battery connection. Please let me know if my thinking is correct. It will be my first twin setup so I'm excited!!

Just curious - will this fly with a single 70g 2200 (SMJV2 class motor) and 6x4, will it still balance? I'm a pretty slow flyer < 60mph, more like 45ish. I wanted to try pushers - so this and the F-22 rear mount are in the works.

Yes, single SMJv2 would definitely move it well! You can balance it using the battery size.  I bet it would balance with an 1800 3s but you could always add a 2200 if needed.  A simple mod to the back would be all you need (check out the F22 rear), but please make sure the elevons clear the prop. Ask if you need help!

I finished up another so I don't have to worry about crashing,left this one stock except for the battery tray.I had the motors in a couple lite weight T-50's to land on top of my fields soybeans but now that it has been harvested I can get back to flying all of my larger planes.                                                                             WIN_20191124_23_29_47_Pro.jpg                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       WIN_20191124_23_30_50_Pro.jpg

I just finished the Mig 29 and waiting on some decent weather to maiden it. I've read the entire thread prior to the build and I know it's  mentioned somewhere in here but .... could someone tell me the recommended/suggested weight? Mine came out a hair over 24 oz.

I believe that is very close to mine and it flies great so you will be fine.
