Guys' Tiger 2 electric conversion


Here's my take on how to electrocute the CG Tiger 2. First a little background. I bought the partially built kit at this year's swap, the wing had been rough framed and sheeted. I've done the rest .

I'm installing the Firepower 40 800kv (4250-8)
With the Hurc 80amp Opto ESC and a ubec.

I've always had good luck with the equipment I get from heads up rc so I just stepped up in size from the freedom I shocked last year, and let me tell ya it flys awesome. Servos will be a mix of whats on hand with one on each aileron torque rod.

That spinner is stoopid cool. Where did you get that idea? Ground clearance?

I did some preliminary balance and found a nose heavy condition (2- 3s 5000) so I eliminated 51 grams from the nose, I'll also be integrating a long battery tray to make an adjustable battery bed system. This will accommodate the balance for my different battery packs.

I'm balancing for servo placement tomorrow, once I finger that one out I'll cover the fuse. Anyone have negative experience with running servo extensions without any ferrite rings?

Good job done on the plane and the conversion... I built a couple of these Tigers and the Tiger 2 when they were launched to the market by C.G....
My humble opinion is that if you use 6volts for the battery and a 2`4 ferrite are not neccesary at all...
Regards.
Manolo.
