The Lancair EP is 43" wingspan, with a Gelcoated fiberglass fuselage and cowl, and Monokote covered balsa wings and stabilizers with a 30A brushed ESC and T-400 motor. The wings feature semi-symmetrical profiling making it a fast low drag model at 2lbs finished weight. In January 2011 I bought this plane with the future intent of doing a brushless conversion and upgrade to lithium Polymer power, since it was such a low cost and fantastic looking model plane. I want to share how I have done it, so that others may learn how. Lots of pictures and modifications. Read more by clicking on the Comments...

I bought this 64mm EDF jet in the fall of 2010, and recently revisited it. The wingspan is 28", 41" long. This is a very light weight EPS foam airframe that seems to offer potential for fiber glassing or many other uses. It's greatest merit may be its ease to takeoff and landing, even with a mild 4000kv motor on 11.1V packs. I've installed a 5000kv motor in mine. Read on by clicking on the Comments...
