Free Airframe.....now what?


My dad gave me a kit he had laying around a while back and here it is. Much different from my other planes...this one will be for thermal riding. The plane has a 54" wing span and weighs 9 oz as she sits (airframe only).

Wha should I power this puppy with? I'm thinking an EPS300C-C or D would work just fine.....especially with lipolys....

Any thoughts?

Here she is.........

I to think 300 will be fine, as long as you keep the servos and rx light.

That would probably be a Dynaflite Skeeter if I'm not mistaken, in which case, a 6 v. speed 400 direct drive on a 6 x 3 folder, with 6 or 7 x 600 AE cells works very well. I did a conversion of one a couple years back and it worked wonderfully.
