If you use the shielding as your system ground I dont see a ground loop... only if you also parallel one of the internal conductors with it.

I was thinking ground loop reduction. Maybe that isn't a problem here. My shielding is the system ground currently. I think you're right, it would only be a problem if you had a separate shield that isn't acting as the system ground.

Other than the hacks to pull out the battery box, rework the motor mount and fuel proof the front, I don't see any issues. If you want to get really fancy, covert it to pylon mount. :)

If you like to build, you might want to consider the Telemaster 40 Kit (can be built for glow or electric). If you like 'em huge, the Senior ARF is a nice model too.
