CMPro A6M Zero (.50)

My first electric conversion is completed. I successfully maidened it on Thursday 16 October, 2008. I chose this kit after seeing photos of it here on rcgroups.

The first thing I noticed about the kit was the quality of the fiberglass work for the $120 I paid for it from akmodels. Alex provided great customer support, and answered all the pre-sale questions I had in a timely fashion. This being my first kit of this size, Ill say the included hardware kits are of decent quality. I ended up using most of them, with the exception of a few screws nd fasteners.

The plane is powered by a turnigy 50-55B motor, spinning a Master Airscrew (MAS) 11x7 prop. 80A Turingy Plush ESC, 6s 4400mah packs (4x 3s 2200) positioned 2 in cowl area, 2 behind firewall. Fixed gear, as I hate fiddling with mechanical retracts (all retracts for that matter).

Maiden flight was a success, with the exception of the landing whcih resulted in bent gear. Result of pilot error (way too much speed on approach).

Nice! CMP has well finished models although they tend to be a handfull in the air. How was the speed with the setup?

Howdy Jim!

The speed was good, I'd say 60-70mph range with the 3 bladed prop. I just like how it looks with the 3 blades, otherwise I'm certain we could get more if I were willing to run a 2 blader
