Coming back to R/C, need some advice.

Hi Everyone,

I have been out of R/C aircraft since about 1992 and would like to come back to it after finding two planes I forgot about in my parents' closet and after getting Spektrum 5e simulator system. (WOW, has this hobby changed!) They are the old Simprop Demoiselle and Taube for geared brushed 280 and NiCd batteries from Hobby Lobby. They are untouched and I would love to get them both flying.

I've done a fair amount of research on radios, li-poly and brushless motors... all the "in" stuff now and I'm looking for recommendations for the BEC, motor and battery.

So if any of you are familiar with these two planes and can make any recommendations, I'd greatly appreciate the input!

Thanks!

+1 on Heads Up. Let him know what planes you have and he'll tell you what you need. I buy a lot from him.
