CMPro A6M Zero (.50)
My first electric conversion is completed. I successfully maidened it on Thursday 16 October, 2008. I chose this kit after seeing photos of it here on rcgroups.
The first thing I noticed about the kit was the quality of the fiberglass work for the $120 I paid for it from akmodels. Alex provided great customer support, and answered all the pre-sale questions I had in a timely fashion. This being my first kit of this size, Ill say the included hardware kits are of decent quality. I ended up using most of them, with the exception of a few screws nd fasteners.
The plane is powered by a turnigy 50-55B motor, spinning a Master Airscrew (MAS) 11x7 prop. 80A Turingy Plush ESC, 6s 4400mah packs (4x 3s 2200) positioned 2 in cowl area, 2 behind firewall. Fixed gear, as I hate fiddling with mechanical retracts (all retracts for that matter).
Maiden flight was a success, with the exception of the landing whcih resulted in bent gear. Result of pilot error (way too much speed on approach).
