I wanted to post a few pics of my Seawind plane I recently converted to ELECTRIC. I bought this a couple weeks ago new with a 61 OS engine in it. That had to go! No nitro touching this bird. I went with a 1650KV inrunner by Align and a 100A esc. Yes its a helicopter inrunner, I mounted it in a GP aluminum large mount and took less than 20 minutes to install. Prop is a 13x8 APC and I plan to use 4S5000 lipos. Those mounts ROCK! The servos in the wing are HS225BB Hitecs and the elevator and rudder are Futaba 3102's. I went with a 9 channel orange rx so once its maidened I can fine tune and mix the flaps for optimum control. This plane is gorgeous and I can wait to get it out to the lake.

No, it doesnt have lights(yet), the stripes on the wing and tails are reflective and jump out at the cameras flash.

Ill keep you posted on flight testing!!!
