I have decided to finally get started on my Pica Duellist 240 which I bought in about '92. The kit called for twin .40 nitro engines, so first question is size of motors, ESC and battery packs. From what I have read and seen, it should be a good electric flier, weighting in at about 8 pounds. I see in the wing build that I need to figure out landing gear and wiring before I close them up (Fully sheathed). Probably that will cause me to do the Fuselage first, modifying it to accommodate batteries or ESC. Plans do not show access hatch, so I need to create one.
Does anyone recommend preferred placement in the nacelles of batteries or ESC?
Started RC in the early '80's in California, then dropped out for about 20 years.Currently flying nitro Pica Rapier, rebuilt from '90's kit..
