Well after completing my travel trailer,I was approached by an employee who asked if i would be interested in trading my small trailer for his much larger one,and after acquring another 50cc biplane i realized i was quickly running out of room so I made the trade,this is the almost finished product,I installed the solar panels and bus battery for the charging station and also added a cd player and a pair of 6x9's and some nice led lighting,@ 16 feet long and 8 feet high,looks like I wont have to duck going in anymore.

Hello friends of RC groups, I am here seeking knowledge. I just recently finished a 50cc pitts python electric conversion however my flight times appear to be a little less than what i was expecting(very used batteries)so im hoping someone would share with me their build and power setup so i can create a nice big electric flyer,i have recently purchased two 6s 8000mah batteries that will be run in series for the 12s setup in my pitts,im hoping this will give me the ten minutes of flight time I would like. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

I wanted to take the time to share with my friends here on rc groups what I have done to make my rc life easier,my trailer isnt very big so I had to incorporate some very unique ways of storing my vessels,the large pitts hangs vertical to eliminate the need of having to remove my wings everytime Im done flying,the helicopters were the easiest to position,I simply took a 2x4 a little longer than than the width of my landing skids and bored a hole for the end of the skids to slide into,theres foam on the vertical stab just to keep it safe from bumps and bruises,the most interesting and unique part of my trailer is my charging station,my field where I fly doesnt have electricity for the electric guys to charge our batteries so i have installed an 8d large capacity battery under my workspace and to keep it alive I also installed a 20 watt solar panel on the roof along with a control panel inside to optimize charging and prevent overcharging.
Now what I have is a mobile charging station that i dont have to maintain,the sun does it for me,for any info on my setup just send me a pm and I will be glad to help anyone with the products and where to buy from,the solar charging system cost around 75 bucks, the 8d bus battery cost 140(I have friends at o'riellys autoparts). thanks for looking.I also added some very cheap led lighting for enhanced ambience but It also puts off enough light to see very well even in the daylight...

well folks,I have been turned off by nitro helis for some time now due to having two that just didnt want to run no matter how hard I tried,but I didnt give up on nitro and bought a used raptor 30 with on o.s. 32 and well I think my faith in nitro has been restored. this thing is awsome and the larger tank gets me almost 20 minute flight times..

I picked up an msrx from craigslist and to my surprise it was very fast and responsive,I got bored with my msr and sold it but I think I'll keep this for a little while.
