Hi all, I've been reading through this thread and would like to say well done to all who have ventured forth in the electric power conversion of this model. I have been looking at this kit which is on sale at a LHS and been thinking about pulling the trigger on one. My question for you chaps flying your Waco's is how much of a roll out is required on landings? My field is short, about 80 feet in length and grass. Would this model be too much for my strip? I fly at home, and unfortunately cannot make the strip any longer. It is satisfactory for all my electrics currently, but this would be a big step up, more in the weight category than wingspan (my E-Flite Beaver is about the same span, and 1/2 the weight). Also, I prefer more scale like flying so overpowering it is not what I'm looking for. The E-Flite power 90 seems like a suitable match, but the cell count is beyond what I can currently charge. Any other good recommendations for about 1200 -1500 watt power options?

Thanks,

Rem
