Lanier Husky 106

I have had this Lanier Husky waiting in the wings for a few years. I converted it to electric using an E-flite power 160 using a 4s 4200mah 50c battery in series with a 5s 4200mah 50 c battery for 9s. I came out with 220 watts at 62 amps with a Xoar 19x10 wood electric prop. The plane weighs in at 14 pounds ready to fly including batteries. Hopefully I will get it test flown this week.

220 Watts? Is there a zero missing somewhere? Looks very nice.

Evan,

You are correct 2200 watts.

I got a test flight in today, the plane flies great, plenty of power. I flew for 13 minutes completing multiple touch and go's, the battery cells had an average of 3.88 remaining. I will play with the flaps next time I fly it, landings without flaps were fine. This plane will turn into a favorite of mine I believe.

Congrats on a successful maiden!! looks like a nice plane!! A wee bit overpowered but who cares, plenty there for flying. 13 minutes of scale flying on 4200 mah is exceptional. Does it have solar panels your not showing - hehe. Obviously flown in a scale Husky manner.
Good one. Doug B

Doug,

I am sure that I spent some time on the ground doing final checks so my actual flight time was less. I found that 1/2 throttle was all that was needed in most flying situations. Definitely overpowered, but the throttle works both ways.
