Converted my old Goldberg Eagle 2 to Electric.
I built the plane in 1991 & i had an O.S. 40 engine on it.
Very quick & easy conversion (didn't have to add any weight front or rear for the CG)
Used an Emax BL3526/04 860kv motor from Heads Up RC & will be running 4 cell 4200 mah batteries.
Another one I won't be flying much, but i do have 6 flights on it since the conversion (a lot more power than it had with the nitro engine)

Anyone that has had one of these, know what a great plane it is.
It is a 63 inch Graupner ELEKTRO KADETT.
All up flying weight with a 3cell 2200mah battery is only 51.75 ounces.
Running a Turnigy 3542-1000 motor & as light as this plane is, that is a ton of power.

One of the four remaining nitro planes I have left.
I have had it for about 23 years.
If this would be feasable to convert it to electric. i would.
It is a 59 inch P-39 running on a 46 O.S. Engine.
Also has retracts.
I have put 8 flights on it in the last 3 years that i have been back in the hobby.
I still plan to take it out, but not often.
All i do now is electrics (just don't want the mess & the extra hassle anymore)
