Top Flite Cessna 310 electric conversion

I love the flight profiles of a twin aircraft. I found this TF 310 kit on a RC classified site for a steal. Really, when I was loading it up in my truck, I felt like I had a gun and mask with me. Never the less, I knew it had to be converted to electric power. I removed all most 2 lbs of steel shot from the nose and fabricated battery boxes to install as far fwd in the nose as I could. Its powered with 2 Eflite Power 60's, 2 Castle ICE 100 ESC's and, 2 6s 5000 mAh Zippy batteries. After the maiden and 2 more flights today, this 310 flys awesome. Rock solid with no bad characteristics. TF nailed it with this one!!!

Well, over the weekend, I had a mid air with my friends Corsair. I can't believe the corsair didnt make it but, I was able to limp the 310 back home. Just broke the LH motor mount loose so I still had power from the LH nacelle. Since I have changed the 310's markings to a military executive transport plane, it will now sport a kill marking.
