OMG you've got some serious work on there Andy, best of luck. Good job you guys are in Tier 3 so it will give you plenty of time to crack on. No doubt it will turn out a stunner.

Again "WoW"
Will you get the base with the computer chip for starting up and stopping. I watched one with John at Telfors, I think he got one. Looked great.

Yes, if you look at the picture of the parts, there is a circuit board that controls the motors lights and sound. The hardest part is going to be getting the propellers to run true. There are 4 3D printed bushes to attach the motors to the prop bosses but they're not 100% true. I may look for a brass replacement for them.
Now, I wish I was a model engineer...  ::)

I agree. We don't like wobbling props.

Andy,
There will be no wobbles in this build in your hands.
I am confident that it will turn out to be a masterpiece of modelling.
Cheers,
