    Looking online I just see people using 3s with a 12x6 prop. Cant tell you for sure but yeah a 10 or 11 inch prop would probably be what it needs on a 4s.

ID:	1000Am I likely to have any problems mounting my motor hanging off the back like this?

    Thanks.

    Hey NDw, I was just watching Team Blacksheep's latest video about assembling their ARF Zephyr. Trappy recommends putting the motor hanging off the back. It will be quieter and more efficient. I'm personally going to keep my motor over the mount for now, but keep this in mind as a way of moving the CG back when I need to.

    Sweet thanks.

    My rctimer motor is pulling about 52 amps/ 733 watts on a 4s and 10x6 prop!

    Motor on the back is just as fine
    Trappy, where do you get your laminate?

    Thanx for the heads up! Just placed my order. Wonder how long they'll last?

    Sorry to hear about your equipment bay troubles. Can you let me know if you followed the manual on bay placement/sizing which got you into this situation or did you simply make your main bay too large? If it's an issue with the manual, I'd like to know how you think we can improve it.
