Gee Bee R2

I started getting the parts together for my Gee Bee. It will be a winter project but should start the wings here about November. Here are some pictures for the size comparison

Yeah, that's one heck of a belt drive. What's the reduction on that unit, and where did you get that prop!?

Actually it is a German Kit. Ill have to look at the documentation. Its all in German. A small stumbling block. I purchased the gearbox and prop from Torque roll here on the zone. He had a Nue 2215/2y on it. It pulled his Yak very well. I think he is having a new baby so he had them up forsale. The motor sold but the rest was avalible. Its a 6:1 ratio.

I put the prop up to the fuse and it just looks right. And very cool...... I was thinking the new Asto motor might be a canidate for the project. I think they have a 120 and 160 direct drive.

Ill be getting a CC 110 HV controler and then Spend the big bucks for Batteries. As I said its the beginning. After I get my buddies Trinity F3B done and repair my sailplane Ill be starting this. ( I havent had good luck with my planes for some reason. I havent crashed one in 15 years that couldnt be fixed. I have had 3 in 2 months) 8-( Im even selling some stuff off to fund this one. I would like to have it for SEFF next year. We shall see
