VQ P38 Lightning

Hey guys.
Thought I'd share a few pics of my P38 electric conversion
Flys great on two 4500mah 6s packs and 400kv motors

Beautiful Lightning 300!

Would you mind sharing the details? Which:
Motors
ESC's
Gear
Gear door operation
Etc.


Is this the new Legend Models or an older VQ Lightning?

Hi
Motors are E-Flite power 60's
Props are counter rotating for take off and landing stability
ESC's are hobbywing 80A
The retracts are unknown origin sourced off Ebay
Covering is aluminium plumbers tape with rivet and panel line detail added.
AUW is approx 13lb
Gear doors each have there own servo and they are sequenced with an S.M. Electronics controller (unfortunately no longer trading)
The batteries fit in the cavity behind the nose cone and no lead was needed.
Looks stunning in flight!

You asked the same question over at my thread!

Seems you are hopelessly low skilled in searching the Web.

It is a large RC Warbird model, trust me.

For comparison of the KMP and VQ P-38's which I found very interesting you can read up at:
