Orvis-I have read in other threads that people are using them on 12lb planes. There is a thread from a loooong time ago (2006
) where the converson weighed in at 14 lbs with a sound system on 6 cells so I think thats right where I'll be. And that was with a pound of weight in the nose that hopefully I wont need due to the heavier motor.
Walter-No 10 cells, I cant afford that many HV ESC's
. Itll be 2x6cells, one 5000mAh battery per motor. And speaking of P-51's, I would love to do a Precious Metal 51 but I dont have the glassing skills or the time to make it look good. And in all fairness, I was in love with the contra prop Spitfires first. God I wish someone made a large kit for the Supermarine Sea Fang.
