w/a 6 cell A123 pack, I don't know if it'll have enough pull so ordered a 5000ma lipo and an assortment of props to get the most out of it. Use the same motor in a Cap and it is quiet, smooth, and pulls luverly.
That is a MANLY motor! I was thinking I could get by with a RimFire 35-48-700 that I already have but from the looks of what you are sizing up, I might need to re-think that one.

Been flying the Cap 60 from HobbyCity. It needs a bigger motor. My current most favorite is the 42" 3DHS Slick - great plane!

Think I'll put the same motor in the GP reactor 60 (if I get it for my birthday in Nov)

Yes... It has been a while and the Seagull has got to fly or GO.

1) Dropping the Electric Conversion
2) OS BX1 1.08 Motor <yes Nitro>
3) Daryl passed over a bunch of parts
4) Motor Mounts have been adjusted to hold fatty motor
5) No Cowl for start up
6) Wing Saddle needs work to correct Incidence issue

Maiden last year was a scary sucess! It makes Karl giggle. It has improved alot since he last flew it.

I have a new Cowl for it for this season. Fixing up a few of the annoying quirks and getting it ready for this season

Seagull Edge 540 (4 min 50 sec)
