Really great video from a unique perspective!

Any chance of a translation? I listened to it a number of times, but could not quite make sense of what the commentator was saying (the language is Dutch by the way).

know it all
any ideas of amps and rpm with this setup?, wired in parallel or each motor had its own 2s4p pack?.. and last but not least what kind of duration did you get?, battery capacity too please.

Anybody else please feel free to tell us about what power system you used. Original system uses geared speed 600 motors, unknown gear ratio, prop size and battery.

Nice planes. I believe the stock setup is direct drive Speed 600.

I have one of these that I bought on my birthday in 1999. I was almost finished building but stopped because I had to move. The wing is mostly done and so is the fuselage. I intended to install retracts with functional doors, and have cut out the doors in the plastic parts and made mounts for the retracts. If I finish it I will make a couple of big CD-ROM motors for it, or just fly it on a couple of Speed 600's.

Thanks for the comments on the video. Tim - I didn't realize it was in Dutch so I re-edited it to German:


I got the newsreel footage here if you would like to see the actual footage and read the translation:


I used segment 2 this time.

Next time I talk to Ed I will try to get the info on Amps & RPM, or have him post it. Duration has to be about 8-10 Minutes, a really good flying plane.

Here`s my Flair BF110, just finished spraying it. It`s amazing what a paint job can do, when i bought it it had been hand painted with camo markings and looked a bit of a cowboy job. I was going to paint it add some detailing but i have to thin my planes out and i`m now loathed to part with it!..........Martin

i think this is the scheme Leccyflyer was refering to... I know it's too late, but better late than never! (I just saw the posting). I still like how yours came out, though...

If you would like to send it to the USA keep me in mind.

Wonderful 110's in this thread!
