Big Red Cadillac

I call it my big red Cadillac. The plane was built by the late Ron Ewing, and I subsequently replaced the original Jeti Phaser brushless inrunner and ESC system with an E-flite Power 32 and Venom 60A ESC. Three channel, flys like a dream (sort of like a big Caddy going down I-95 to Florida), on a 11x7 wood prop (from my glow fuel days), pulling electrons from a 4000mAh 4S Lipo. Previously use an 8 sub-C NiMH pack, weighing in at one pound. New Lipo is the same weight, but MUCH more powerful.

And, yes, it will fly inverted, just takes a heap of down elevator while upside down. Ron built very good planes, nice to keep him in mind while flying my Big Red Cadillac.
