Great! Thank you for the information.
Jason, how hard will it be to turn this plane into a glow plane? Don't get me wrong, I love all of my electrics, and I realize that HL advertises it as an electric. But I already have the receiver, servos and a .61 engine for the plane. So, I want to go the glow route, for cost reasons. I really don't want to shell out another 500 bucks to make it electric, when I have all the glow parts already. Any advice would be appreciated.

The Senior Telemaster ARF will not fly with a Glow Engine on it. It told me just yesterday that it doesn't like all the noise from those engines and that they leak goo all over it's pretty covering

Ok, just kidding. The plane is actually built for glow and has engine mounting rails pre-installed in the nose designed to fit a ~.60 size engine. The conversion to Electric is super simple. All you do is cut back the rails by about an inch or so to give room for the Axi to fit in there. I think you'll like the new hatch on the nose as well. It will give easy access to batteries for E-versions and to the fuel tank for glow-versions. Hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you need anything else.

I was just waiting for the "Goo" Joke! Ha! Honestly, I am an electric flyer... Started on electrics, and still continue to fly electrics. The old timers at my club are amazed by my electrics. Things they say will never fly well, fly great and even lug both still and video cameras into the sky at the same time. (You Have got to love lipos!) They are even starting to buy a few themsleves. It's the cost factor. I have been looking at the Senior Telemaster in both kit and ARF form for a couple of years now, and I am excited to finally get one. But, I need to slime it up a bit until the electric costs come down, or I inherit some money...

You'll be able to carry some pretty serious loads with the Senior Tele. ARF. Just remember to use the supplied wing struts to help distribute the load. Have fun with and don't forget you can always convert it to electric in the future.

Also remember to shop around and check every good vendor monthly to look at the cost again. If your a current electric guy then your 50% there. All up including charger I'm just over 500 bucks to get mine in the air.

Yeah, I'm pretty close. But, I am closer with the glow components. Funny thing about my electrics. Most of them, especially the Lipo-Brushless ones are intact. So I keep buying components for each them. Right now I have a working Scorpio Super Miss, Scorpio ThreeDee, Bohemia Grumbler, Pilatus Turbo Porter (can you tell I like it when HL has a sale!) Scorpio Dornier Twin, Clancy Lazy Bee, Great Planes Spectra Glider, Great Planes Matt Chapman Flat Out, Parkzone J-3 cub modified with a brushless setup, Hobbico Super Star EP modified with Kyosho Endoplasma 19 turn Brushed motor, and lipos, Flying Styro BumbleBee Twin, Clancy Yard Bee, Wingo, Multiplex EasyStar, My son's Hobbyzone Firebird commander and Aerobird Challenger. On the Work bench is a Wattage 400 Cub that I want to repair from a crash with a brushless/lipo combo, an Aventura II Floatplane, 2 Mini Telemasters (first one is turning out rough, need to try again... but I will still fly the first!) a HL Yak Foamy, Clancy Stagger Bee that I plan on going brushless with, a Dynaflite Piece o'Cake that will be brushless, a Habicht Glider, and so on. I also have several glow planes: a Tower Kaos, Great Planes Slow Poke, Global AeroPhibian, SIG Kadet LT-40, and I am working on a Balsa USA Stingray 1.20 kit and and ACE model Simple Ultimate kit.
As you can tell, most of my planes are electric... I guess that is why I'm thinking of Glow for the Senior Telemaster. Need to change it up from time to time... and yes, I am a bit obsessed with this hobby. I replaced smoking with flying and building. (just got to do something with my hands) Now that I listed my planes, (I'm sure I missed a few) I am a little freaked out by the number of planes that I have in my hangar. Oh well, guess you can never have too many.
Looking forward to next week's sale. Can you give us a hint as to what type of product it will be???

Wow, good thing you were able to get a Telemaster, you have hardly anything to fly!

Yeah, I think I can afford to crash a few. I must say that I have picked up most of them on sale, clearance, with gift certificates, or as gifts. And some of them were impulse buys. I think I am fortunate, I haven't really crashed a whole lot over the last couple of years, and the planes just keep accumulating. I told my wife that the plane fairies keep stoping by the house, and they leave me gifts. Just haven't figured out where I am going to store the 94 inch Telemaster and an 81 inch Stingray??
Also, if you saw the wide open spaces that we have to fly in in South Dakota... well enough said. Check out the attached aerial photo.
