Didn't you find out the pilot's name and where he was from? You mentioned it to me, but I forgot. Hard to believe, right.

Travis, can you give me some details on your power setup. Are you running 2 separate isolated power systems per side? (motor, ESC, batt) Or are you sharing batteries or running one ESC? I am working on a 96" B-25 that will be electric so I am curious on what other electric twins are doing for power. Also what was the reasoning for counter props? I have heard arguments for both sides

I know it is a ways out but hopefully you will be at eweek, I will be there with some large electric warbirds

Awesome plane!!!!!

One more question, where did you get the fine yellow text for your prop blades?

I can answer the question about the prop lettering since Travis found them and I ordered them for him. We got them from Pro Mark Graphics.

Thanks Bobby, yup pro mark is where I got the transfers and logos for the props.
The motors are axi 5345-14hd with jeti controllers. Each side has (2) 5s 5000mah 65c thunderpower packs in series to make a 10s pack.

Thanks guys that is great information!! I am doing 8s per side but similar setup. What kind of flight times are you getting?

It will vary a good bit with throttle, but 7 min will be very doable.

awsome lockheed


Love everything I've seen so far on this fork tail. I had considered the V Q 80" because it already had the motor set up but now , the Yellow is looking much better thanks to you. Thinking about the same setup for power. Were those the varioprops or something else? Also,what kind of paint,battery positions, whose gear,gear door detail,stock spinners and cockpit detail for starters. Also, how did you finish the outer wing panels? Unless something has changed with that kit, they were just balsa sheeted. Did you go with recommended CG or change it? Anyway ,looking forward to hearing more about the plane and of course any video would be awsome. Thanks

Does anyone out there have a source for a yellow aircraft p-38? The guy in San Diego isn't getting them in anymore. I'm jonesing for one to do as an electric like the beautiful one that EDF NUT did. Thanks

"The guy" stopped making them, he announced about 2 years ago and sold all remaining stock...
