I converted my Super Supra to Electric it flys with a Hacker B40 with a gearbox on a 3 cell 1300 Lipo . It’s great not to have to set up the winch to fly her. Thanks Rich for getting me sorted on full house set up with my DX 9 it’s like a new plane now.

I picked this up here on RC groups last week it needed some minor covering repair and then I decided to put a winch in the nose so I diddn't have to worry about using a bridal and killing it on the line. I put in a geared Neu motor spinning a 13x9 prop on 3 cell 2200 with an ice 75 ESC . The servos are digital spectrums I put them in where the bridal hooks went in the wings and the rudder servo is set into the fuse at the back . The balance was right on with the equipment installed and It flys great !! Thanks for the help on the maiden Jay.
Got out the spray paint this weekend and had some fun . I was worried about orientation but with the tall tail it's not a problem even at th limits of my vision.

Recovered this big guy for a fellow flyer a while back; I diddn't want to take it apart before he did a post mortum so I just duct taped it to the front of my truck for the drive back. It got some looks lol.

I got this from Uncle George a while back and converted it to electric; it flew ok but not great .....soooo I pulled all that out and put in a DLE 20 gas engine in ! ( thanks Bunkey). Now it flys great!! it has plenty of power ,it will go vertical and hover as well as knife edge, its much better this way. The assembly at the field is still a bit of a PITA but it's worth it now.

This is a fantastic combination . Its an E pike fuse (thank you Bud ) and a bagged Supra wing from William Lipscomb. It uses a geared neu spinning a 16 inch prop on 3 cells 3300 pack with an ice light 200. ( thanks to Josh for the ice 200 info blow out pricing on this ).
The power system is a bit overkill but I needed the weight to balance and it will still thermal all day.

This one was a group effort thank you Jay who built the vee tail and Bill who got the whole thing started . Its a great flyer with a geared hacker B50 acro spinning an 18 inch prop on 4 cells and a jeti esc. On 4 cells It has plenty of power and thermals well.
