Since I've canceld the greatplanes extra 1.60 and will go whit fuel.
I'm in need off a daily (electric) 3D plain.

I'm thinking about the Weston hype 3D whit there electric deal:
Flyware 350/25 motor, Hacker 70 Opto controller 2 8.4 pack (3.3A) battery packs fully wired with Magnum connectors and charging connectors.

Any good?
And what batteries?
Just one more what would be the preformens could it hover?

i have the weston cougar with the flywere motor, using 3300 8 cell packs you will only get 5 min flights these motors pull 60 amps which means its hard to upgrade to li-polys[ i also have the hype with the weston glow motor]. you need a geared set up running 10 cells [so you can move to 3s lipolys] so you can reduce the amps, other than that its a great plane you just need to Strengthen the landing gear as the mounting point is a bit weak.


ps my cougar would prop hang and pull out easy.

various reviews in the press imply that you will need 16 cells Nicad to hover
