Thanks Rob for posting pics as i cant figure out how to do it:shock: 
Extra 330s. 3w 150b. Never used a ganged servo tray for a rudder before but looks like it will work pretty slick. 3 hi tec 5585 mh hv servos. 4 5585mh hv's on the ailerons and 2 7955 hv's on the elevators. Smart fly eq10 power expander has built in match boxes for every channel so servo set up should be smooth i hope. Jr 921 reciever and two 3700 mh lipo's for all the hv servos. Prop im starting with is a 32x10 but may go to a mejzlik 30 x 13 if i want alittle more speed. Put the wings on for the first time tonight! Looks like it should come in about 39lbs. The guy at 3w said the 150 with a 32x10 will make approx 96 lbs of thrust at 5,600 rpm so vertical performance should be impressive.
Hope to have it ready to fly in a couple weeks Very Happy I think it neefs a smoke system yet!
