Just when I've reconciled myself to building my IMAA legal (approx 50" span) K-E-os large scale model of the Kaos/Chaos with a fuselage mounted taildragger, you come along and prove the trike UC can be compatible with 'electrocution'!

That would make it my fourth trike UC RC model since my first in 1980

Yours definitely needs a battery hatch! Put the model together, sit the pack atop the fuselage where it nails the CG, build the hatch to allow for easy pack swaps.

I did one of these earlier this year. I used a firewall mount with nylon spacers from the harware store.

Oh, a fellow 5055-580 user... do you happen to know what size bearings will fit, and what other bolt-on prop adapters will fit?

Great job, Fickle! Hope mine looks as good as yours when done. But I am going to try a shortcut by putting the battery where the fuel tank used to be, and accessing from below.

Kaos konversion numbers...too good to be true?

The customizing part of my Tower Kaos e-conversion is pretty much done. So today I decided to take a deep dive into the wing loading and power loading numbers.

First reaction: Is this too good to be true? Perhaps someone can tell me if I am missing something.

Thanks!
