Quarter scale electric flying boat, 222 inch span.

Not at all new, but I guess not previously posted here. http://www.sbrcm.org/f1.htm
Gives a pretty thorough story, and some interesting history.

Motor were brushed Astro Cobalt 90s, and the ESCs were whatever Bob Bouscher supplied us with, to run the motors. That was not my department, but I know they were Astro controllers. I think the battery packs were 3000 mAh Nimhs, in PowerTubes. (Sorry I didn't see your question, earlier)!
