What do you do if you have EPS's, but dont want to buy a new plane with new EPS's?


I have had a few gws planes that are broken and I dont want to buy a whole new power system that costs half of the whole plane. I saw on www.horizonhobby.com that you can get slope glider versions of gws with everything except the EPS, but the gliders are not the ones I desire, not all of the gws planes are there. Another problem is that I dont know exactly what the slope gliders come with. For example, how do you know if it comes with the stick mount for the motors, landing gear, etc?

I think that gws enthusiest would appreciate not having to pay the extra money for a power system they dont need in a new plane if they already have the power system from a previous plane. Basically, the idea of slope gliders should go beyond the realm of large wing area planes.

Just a suggestion.

I don't understand. Slope gliders come in almost every plane, I know the warbirds do. They come unpainted, have no landing gear and have a stick.

Can you provide a link as to where the website of every gws as a slope glider is?

Where is the website that you are able to find no eps planes for all gws planes?

Just so you're aware, they don't come with landing gear either. Watch out for that.

I'd just buy the whole kit unless I had a brushless setup. The brushed motors will wear out and you never can tell when you'll crash and blow up a gearbox. I'd rather have the spares, seeing as how my LHS cannot be counted on to have them in stock as I need them.
