Nice find! It looks like it's in great condition. I hope you keep it as an electric! Looking forward to seeing your progress.

I have the 50 and 120 versions and they're both electric conversions.... here's the thread for the 50 sized. It has a ton of great tips and pictures.

So, few words and photos about how previous owner make converting...

On motorwall put fiberglass



For motorholder he used alloy motorholder from HK



From motorwall he must cut out some part becouse battery must be moved forward to get CG on the right place

Thanks! I think you'll be very happy with how this plane flies. Lands a little fast but it's very manageable and a real rocket at 6s (but flies beautifully in a scale manner with 5s).

Very nice build pictures.. I really like that motor mount!

Can I ask if you have found a decent 3 bladed spinner yet? I'm about to order the World's Model spinner. It's about the best scale spinner i've seen for this plane..

I had a testflight on Sunday.



The first two landings were bad, the third one was the worst. It has ended with a motor holder damage

No, it's a good place for landing. I use it for CAP-580 (1400mm) and Sky Hero (1560mm) , too.
After 5 minutes of flying I charged approx. 2100mAh in battery 5S 4000mAh

When I came home, I checked what could be the reason of the model's turning of after landing. When the left wheel takes all the weight of the plane, it blocks.



I've dissasembled model and begun with prepares.



First, I ironed the alloy motorholder...
Later, using polyester filler, I've prepared engine cover



Using sandblock I've finished surface, but painted it only after test fly



I built back the motorholder, motor and ESC



I've checked CG



Next step is test fly... again...
