Power Up 25 Electric Motor

Just received a new motor from Headsup RC, it is a Power Up 25 Speed, 1200 kv. Going to run it with a 8 x 6 prop to see how it performs. It has great quality, is almost the same size as the Eflite and just about the same weight.
The cost is $29.95 us. Check out the specs at Headsuprc.com. Lots of great items, at low prices and fast shipping.

With so many attractive models being presented in this thread can i ask for a list of whose supplying kits now and costs please . Currently in the UK all we have is the Pogo and a shoestring variant in development .The building season is here and be good to advertise whats available so we can encourage new members to start preparing . Many would be pilots are not prepared to design from scratch but even with a plan and part kit the task becomes considerable easier - thanks

It was great having you come up for the races! I'm hoping we will do EF1 at our next Q25 series race. It is scheduled for November 14, 2010 at Thunderbird Field at Lake Benbrook.

I had a great time flying with you all as well. I should be able to make it for that race as well depending on my schedule. So far so good.

I heard a rumour that the Tomcat is quite a difficult build.

Dave seriously, this coming from a guy that built the Nemesis and Outrageous. The TOMCAT is a slab side foam wing core build. You are kidding right?

I put the fuse together for that little silver plane from a bag of laser cut parts Jerry gave me... there were no instructions and a bunch of pieces that I didn't use, but it literally took less than an hour to build and cover... heck, even the vacu-formed bits were easy to do... I do have an original Lil Toni kit I bought from Jerry, and the main reason I have not built it is I hate dealing with sheeting foam wings.

Just started a thread for available kits. I would like to build one before i ship out next year. I really would like a mid wing EF1 though.

rvdb- thanks for link - can you advise if the RBC kit replicates the little Toni shown earlier inthe NMPRA thread - is there any changes between the model shown and the european kitted variant . i believe the original version had a foam wing balsa clad and i recall talk of the RBC kit being a semi kit still leaving certian parts to be obtained elsewhere . If so then the RBC semi kit is also same price as a pogo . Still want a toni though - thanks
