I am running 2 Racestar 2212 1250 kv motors (I think that is the kv or very close to it) , 2 40A esc's which you probably could get away with 30 or 35A ones if you have and 2 counter rotating 8X6 APC props.

A 2200 3S battery is what I am using , it  just fits in there and balances it almost perfectly. I have the same setup in my P-38 and I think I get around 5 minutes give or take on how I manage the throttle.

I just have to wait for warmer weather so I can get the throws dialed in and then see how long it will go .  So far the rusty thumbs have done ok on my end. 😃

I have the Mossie to re-maiden, Vulcan and Cargo Twin to maiden, along with my big 4stroke biplane.

Its interesting that the twin 2212 (2826) size 930kv motors from RCTimer on 2S and 8 x 4.5 x 3 give really good thrust at 11A ..... and 3S 18.5A ..... 

I think these are going to be my Go-To multi motors from now on. My Mossie has twin Floater-jet AXN 2208 1950kv and they drag total 31A on 6x4x3 props and 3S.

I get you're really experienced and all that, but I still think you're mad to maiden or re-maiden a plane in those conditions. Expertly handled though! I keep thinking of what design of plane would make a good 'storm chaser' - what makes a robust and dominant airframe that can go out in harsh conditions and cut through them as it pleases, but I'm beginning to think it's more about the pilot than the plane!

Its funny about weather and model capability. For many years I flew in southern England, a lot was in the New Forest near Beaulieu ... wind was normally blustery / strong being open ground.
But typical models then were heavier than the lightweight stuff we fly today. We thought nothing of flying in winds that today we stay grounded.

Combination of model weight, wing form and power via prop gave us ability to fly in winds.

Another avenue that I really miss today living in 'flat Latvia' ... is slope soaring. Where you need want a steady reasonable breeze !
