Think I'll stick with going with a H9 Spitfire and paint it while using the g60. Ive got several 8s birds already and the H9 DVII is already balanced etc with the monster 110.

Besides, the H9 Spit will be cheaper to get going and wont take much time to build. The whole reason I was looking for something was I have a saito 72 lying around unused....and the g60 was originally intended for my 80" .40 J-3 Cub. But a .72 will fly that fine and I wont need to do any weird conversion stuff for an e-conversion. Its not a racer so a power 60 motor would be overkill.

I still want a gee bee r3 though.

LDM, you'll definitely want Power 160 for those 70" plus birds. As you know, I'm flying my "little" 66" Will Hobby Sea fury on a Power 110 using about the fastest prop I can lay my hands on (16x16 APC pattern prop) and that feels just about right. Definitely faster than scale on low passes, but boy does it look good, and it has a mean whistle as it goes by.

Thanks , yes i am going with the 160 size motors .
kai , that is not the adapter I was thinking about , you hooked me up with one that has a hole in it and allows the spinner to bolt into the prop shaft and easily bolts onto the Monster 110 with the 4 set screws. I will try to look it up for you .
Love that Bee , seen that years ago when Hobby Lobby was importing one from graupner , was a very cool plane , I think Hobby King sells one at this time

That plane is the 30cc size ARF in the R3 series that was sold years ago by Donuts models. Hobby Lobby carried the 20cc 59" ARF for a while. The HK price is actually incredibly good, but as we all know, you're on your own if there is shipping damage. Giant Model Products carries these planes stateside. There are also 50 and 100cc versions. They are reputed to be a handful. I have the 20cc ARF, not yet built. Super nice airframe, but the hardware is not ideal and the instructions are nonexistent.

The 20cc 59" gee bee r3 is rather heavy on the wingloading. It also has to have a good amount of speed in corners and lands fast. The 30cc at hobbyking is the same one sold at GMP, but version 1 without the upgraded hardware and carbonfiber wing tube. It carries a lighter wingloading though, then the 20cc size.
The 50cc and up sizes have flaps.

I'll be adding split flaps to mine. I'm also going to try a 4S or max 5S build to keep the weight down. No reason why this can't come in at 6.5lb all up with some creative solutions.

What prop are you guys using on your 160 ??
I want to go three blade , I am using 2 -5 cell 5000 batteries .
These (now discontinued) Turnegy 160ties were rated at 200kv i know I should not take that with major consideration but its a simple starting point .

Hope you don't mind me jumping in here. I just picked up a top flite corsair [60 size] that tower has on special. It will be my first 'big' electric conversion. Supposed to come in around 10 lbs when ic powered. Could you please recommend a suitable motor battery, prop combo? Thanks.

There are several dedicated threads in this forum. Using advanced search, search on Top Flite Corsair and select Glow to Electric Conversions from the search in forum(s) box.

That KV is lower then an e-flite 160@245kv. I have used 16x13 3 blades on an e-flite 160 as well as a turnigy sk 6364 245kv motor. I am quite sure a 160 can spin an 18x12 3 blade as I can easily turn a 20x10 2 blade on a power 110.

But since your 200kv is a little low for 10s, you might have to bump up the pitch and lower the diameter.

Fly20 , if you check out RC Universe , Corsair Jock has converted many corsair in this size to epower and in most cases was in the 90 size motor and even 60 size .We would need to know the weight as your kit is the new ARF , not the kit build versions that are sp prevalant in these threads
