Plane for a Mega 16/15/3 and MEC gearbox
I used this power system several years ago on a plane that is no longer used.
It really was way too much power for that plane.
Can someone recommend a plane that is currently available. I want something that is big enough to see at a reasonable distance. A slow flier would be appreciated. A Sunday flier type plane - not a sailplane.
I would like to use my 3 cell 2100 lipo packs. And I can change the gear ratio on the gear box to meet the power needs.
Any recommendation is appreciate.
Note I am an experienced RCer - mostly glow and electric sailplanes.
Thank you. Todd

Got to Polk's hobbies and get the DR1.
At one time I had a setup like you mention in one of these planes and it was a nice flier. Best part is that Polk's is selling all of their ARF's off for cheap so $25 for a plane that was originally $109. They also have a Tigermoth that would work as well.

3DH planes would be a nice size for that, although you have to modify for geared inrunner. I am building their 47" Katana, using a MEC Mini box w/ Neu 1107/2.5Y motor on 4S1P 2100 with 14X7 APCE prop...
