i loved mine coverted. my mkII was about 20 years old when i crashed it due to a dead rx pack. but, i was using a 900KV 35-42 motor on a 12x6E with a 4s 5000. right about the same power as a decent .40, and my longest flight was 26min!!!!!! touch and goes all day long. this was the plane that my dad built to teach me how to fly. i was 6 when he built it, and 28 when i crashed it. who knows how many hundreds of flights it had.

good luck, and ill try to help any way i can.

Thanks for the interest. I am building this for/with my brother (doc993). This will initially run a Monster Power 32 Outrunner. My bro will set up the guts.
I built a Kadet Jr. in 1988. doc993 converted it to electric recently and has been flying it with his video cam.

I have extended the D-box one rib. I upgraded the vertical sheet on this to 3/16" from 1/8". the extension is 1/8". I am considering more extension, but am concerned about weight due to the trailing parts (more later).

Looking good! I'm getting ready to start my Kadet Senior kitbash. flaps/ailerons with twins all on floats.

It'll be fun to watch your build come together.

Trailing edge photos


I decided to use 1 1/2"trailing edge to both replace the 1 1/8" stock provided for ailerons and to fill in under the trailing sheet replacing the stock back edge. I hope this wing doesn't get too heavy! You can see in the pics, I am planning to cut out some material. I'm not sure if this will help much with the weight, however the wood selected for the fill is very stiff balsa and I will be able to bend it this way. (Left side has a slight warp.)

Wow that looks great, I doubt you will add enough weight to affect the performance.But continue to do what you do best .
These brush less motors are very power full, wow flaps very cool slow flight.

Thanks! I decided to center the flaps to the two respective ribs.

Paullie has been overwhelmed with real life and has a sad looking empty build bench. I can only watch while this beauty gets done. Soon enough though, soon enough. I finally recevied all the electrics for the twin motor setup last week. That did help light the fire a bit.

I thought about messing around with contra rotating and but research done here on rcg led me to believe that it wasn't really necessary, so I won't.

That being said, Now I'm interested in yours. Link for build log of your Bugatti?
