Thanks again you guys for all of your input earlier about the motors, your insight and information was very helpful.

I like the pilot on the bottom right with the goatee that Jholen showed a picture of.
He looks like he's taking a really big crap, it would look RAD in my plane!

By the way, we saw a pretty spectacular 500 size helicopter crash tonight..
The pilot was a talented 3D Heli guy that was performing some sweet moves, but bit a little to low to the ground.
He didn't destroy the main frame, battery, or most of the electronics.
Only the tail boom, rear rotor thingy, and main blades were munched.
An approximate $200.00 easy fix according to the pilot.

I know gas conversions do incur a weight penalty, but big plane newcomers can get into a great entry-level 30CC plane for and unbeatable price.
I think the Slipstream MXS is only $300.00, which you can buy locally from Azhar.
It is a great deal because not only is the base price lower than most, but you only pay about $30.00 in tax versus 70 dollars or more in shipping.
Not to mention that Azhar is a great rep for the brand and customer service is top-notch.
Hence an incentive to convert some gas planes to electric.
Chet (PlaneadrenalinRC) is also developing a drop-in motor conversion box for these planes as well.
Ask him for more details.
