EPP LeadingEdge warbird electric convertion

Hi,

Just ordered 2 leadingedge glider warbirds to convert into electric, link to the ME109 48" , any tips on which motor, etc should I be using to succesfully convert this beauty ?

Please advice on CG, right and down thrust etc, will be more than welcome.

Thanks,

Alex

The stats are pretty similar to a Ripmax Spitfire. There is a real good thread in this forum. I would go for somthing like an Axi 2820/10 on a 40 amp esc.

I owuld probably start with the same CG.

You will have to work hard to keep it light.

Good luck

Greg

I electrified a Canterbury Sailplanes PC-9: http://forum.canterburysailplanes.co...opic.php?t=974. Similar dimensions but a bit lighter.


You might do a search on CSD slopers. I know someof those were converted to electric.

Good luck

Greg
