Electric conversion of a Cox 0.049 Lazy Bee


Motor: Uberall Nippy Black OutRunner 0808
Battery: ETEC LiPo 1200mAh 3S1P
Prop: APC 8X6
Weight: 24.7oz or 700g
Throttle: from 1/2 to 3/4 ... 11.1V is too much for this motor.

It takes a while to takeoff but once in the air, it floats!

Let's decorate it now!!!

Not quite as spectacular as the one Andy C himself did back in 95 / 96 - that had five small geared motors (around 280), two under each wing, one in the nose!

Definitely needs "scalloping" now - nice conversion, didn't even know there were any left around still

Regards

Where did you ger it? I had one of those way back when they came out but I haven't seen one in many many years. I wanted to do the same thing and actually found one on Ebay about 5 years ago but got ripped off.

Anyway, are they available somewhere, especially without the .049 and cheap radio?

Thanks,

I bought it on EBay 1 year ago. It came with the cheap radio and 0.049.

The stickers were not in the box. :-((

I asked the person to send them to me but he never did.

Back yard flying,

Looks like a fun project! Where is most of your weight coming from? 24 1/2 ounces seems like a lot of weight for foam. I am curious.

The wing only is 6 ounces (38 X 14).

Wheels and cowling (reg plastic part) are heavy.

The foam is very solid but heavy.

But with the brushless setup, the plane flies very well. It has no problem to stay in the air even at 1/2 throttle.

I'm honestly unsure exactly how much your kit is worth, but if by chance you still have and are willing to part with it I am extremely interested in purchasing!! If at all interested please make me an offer!!!!
