It will be fast, but if the medallion is stock it won’t be crazy fast. You may get away with longer lines too. The prop you chose look like a 6” which will also load the engine up and tame things down.

It is only a stupid idea if you do t like it the first time, and do it again. I would recommend short-tanking it so if it gets going faster than you, then it gets done sooner than "too long.". Huh...

Or, run it rich, and then keep adjusting leaner as you fly each test flight assuming it isn't a stupid idea on the second flight! Laughing

Hard to keep the top wing on in a hard landing. But the plane will fly on just the lower wing.

I built that from the kit years ago…. Powered with Black Widow…. What I remember was “twitchy “…., Keep control throws short…

You made very nice build/motor combo! Interesting!

This thread has got me building one from the outerzone plans right now. Looks like an easy build and something fun to have a go at flying. Thanks for the idea cheers

Yabby, just make sure the top and bottom wing surfaces are parallel, looking frae the side.
