Right! Lipoes, ESC/motor, they all have a cycle lifespan, which is always MUCH MUCH lower than a small nitro engine!

I have engines that are older than my involment in the hobby and still run like new, but I all of my battery packs for my foamies that I spent $200 on last year are all at the end of their life, where as the .25 and smaller engines never cost more than$60-$70, except for the OS .15CV-a which is a $100.

Stinson trimotor


This IS 1/2A, regardless of the 70" wing span, with three PAW 80 diesels for power. It flew, very scale, slow and steady. Never underestimate the power of a 1/2A diesel...

Well done, TLyttle. Very nice job! I'd love to see it and mostly to hear it fly.

I'd love to have any sized diesel!

This NP Cri-Cri would be awsome with two .074-.10's!

Thanks! I have a throttled .061 that needs a nice warm cowl for a home It pulls as hard as my OS .10, so it should fly it well enough with A/T/E.
