Sure Flite Spitfire electric conversion help
I have an ancient (at least 20 years old) Sure Flite Mark 1 Spitfire kit, unbuilt, and some in box crush damage. I repaired the damage, but I would prefer to build this bird as an electric model (rather than the recommended .20 - .40 nitro). Its a foamie, 50" wingspan model, weight not listed, but I'd guestimate 2 pounds with servos, ect. Looking at setting it up as a 6 channel aircraft. What motor would be best for this unit? I've looked, but can't find any info, and the conversion charts seem to vary from place to place...
That plane will be more like 5 to 6 pounds when done. Maybe a touch more. There was a thread in the glow to electric forum.
With all of the new stuff around, good mini and micro servos along with the electric retracts. You can a lot of fun with it. The one I had way back when had a real bad tip stall when slowing down and sharp turns. It would snap faster then any aerobatic plane around.
Here is a setup that should give you plenty of power.
