Yeah, true. Options are good..
FYI, Hobby People aircraft can sometimes be low quality, and a lot ofthem have additional info sheets that weren't added into the manual (based on past experience and local modelers)

15 and a half thousand posts. Now there is someone who knows just about every site to get an airplane. muroc is th expert!
If you can't find a plane in that list, there has to be at least 15 to 20 at least that will work.

Thanks Orrin. Blame it on my bad memory. I write it all down. If I write them down, I figure I might as well share them with others.
Always glad to help and thanks again for the kind words.

The main issue with setting up a 75 to 85 inch span 3D capable model wil be:
Cost of the electric power system.
You'll need a lot of power... that means a big motor, high voltage high current ESC and a fairly large, expensive battery.
to support the large battery you'll need a good charger and source of power. (field charging can be problematic...)
Fortunately if you want to keep your costs down there are some decent, relaively low cost motors, speed controls and batteries at Hobby City and othere on-line sources.

^For around $600 you can get a Castle Creations HV controller and a Hacker outrunner- for the price, doesn't seem too bad for such quality

I went with the Turnigy Sentilon and a huge Turnigy outrunner... 3 X 4S Zippy 5000 mah packs for 12S
I'm still assembling the aircraft.
The power system is RATED to swing a 22X12 appx 8000 rpm, which would make a DA-50 look a bit anemic...
We'll see what results I actually get. I plan on putting a 20X8 on the plane.
cost of the complete system (batteries, ESC and motor) less than $400... bringing cost in line with a low-mid range gasoline engine.

I got a lot of bookmarks, but your list is about as extensive as any I have seen.
There are so many planes, some good, some not so, but everyone has many choices and the problem is, what do you want and how much do you want to spend.
Just typing that list Frank is a labor of love.
So many people on this form can help new people out and what is really neat, is that they do it willing and over and over.
Hats off to all of you "old timers" who take care of all of us who have only been at this a few years. Thanks a bunch!!
