    That motor looks kinda small to me. If you want to stick with a cobra motor, this one looks better. Same price. The NTM motors, you can get 2 for the price of one =)

    ^Agreed. It'll work with 3S, if you already have one, but I'd bump it up a bit.

    Is thinking 4S anyway. Kayak, do you suggest that the motor is enough or not?
    I have the 3510, so I prefer not to buy a new one...

    Oh, I'm no expert. I just plug different battery / motor / prop combos into ecalc and see if it's close to what other people are running.

    Hi Guys,
    I am starting my Behemoth build, but have a question.
    When building my deep reaper by CTH, I followed Lee's instructions and used a significant amount of tape to to strengthen the wing. It seems to me that it was doing its job. I don't see any reference to that in any of the SweepWings build. Has anyone used tape for this purpose? Any comments on experience without it?
    Thanks

    In a couple of Ruben's build videos he uses it on the leading edge and the motor mount. The only real damage I had running into a tree at 50+mph was a slice into the leading edge. It was very minor, but a couple extra layers of tape would have prevented it.

    I really hate the meshy tough tape. I just use packing tape. Follow my build videos for full build and will give you a idea.
