||Here's a great example of an "Old-Timer" (the plane<g>) - a
"Foote Westerner" built by Dave Acker for the '97 SAM Champs at
Las Vegas, NV.
Dave commented "in Limited Motor Run, the Westerner, powered with
your brushless, flew very well..."
It has an 85 1/4" wing span, 775 sq. in. wing area, and uses 7
800 mAh cells into a
geared 3:1 turning a CAM 16x9.5 prop and weighs 47.75 oz.!

||A typical sailplane installation in Hansen Tsang's (Hawaiian) Sunrise. A Max15-13D with Planeta 3.7:1 in-line gearbox and 7-12 cells for the performance of your choice.|
One of our customers has a scale WWII air-force all powered with
geared motors on 10 cells using the
Controller with BEC.
Shown are (in order):
|Jack Sowle's SIG 4Star40 at KRC 97. He powers it with a Max15-13Y geared with 18 cells into a Maxµ35-21 Digital Speed Controller.|
||This is our Horizon Hobbies Hanger9 CUB. At 80.5" wingspan it is IMAA legal. Ours is equipped with a Max15-13Y motor geared 3.33:1 turning a 14x8 Zinger wood prop. The speed controller is our Maxµ35-21 on 20 - RC2000 cells and using BEC (tapped at 10 cells). This is a large, very scale looking, easy to assemble plane that flies great as an electric conversion. With an all up weight of 9 lbs. 7 oz., we are seeing flight times of 8 minutes continuous aerobatics, or 20+ minutes of CUB like flying around. Remember to ask for our Hanger9 battery tray CAD template when you order.|
|An unusual aircraft scratch built by Bruce Kaczmarek of St. Petersburg, FL. Bruce calls it his "Airlifter". It has a 9 ft. wingspan, weighs 7.5lb with 20-RC2000 cells in Model Electronics new "Power Tube" solderless packs. Using a MaxNEO-13D motor geared 9.6:1 with a MEC "Monster-Box" and turning a RASA 20x12 folder at 4000 rpm, Bruce reports "vertical as much as you want" and "more than 30 minutes of cruise". The plane will be used as a camera platform and a launch platform for other planes.|
||Another outstanding scale plane from master modeler Bob Jacquot near Heidelberg, Germany. This is the Top-Flite Gold Edition P-51 Mustang. Bob replaced most of the plywood fuse sides and formers with balsa/fiberglass laminates, and took other steps to insure that the finished electric model would be about the same weight as the glo version. He succeeded with a weight of 10.5 lb. using a MaxNEO-13Y motor, MaxPlanet3.7 gearbox, Maxµ35B-21 Speed Controller, 20 RC2000 cells, 16x10 prop and Robart scale retracts. Bob said that take off was at about 3/4 throttle in about 75-80 ft. It flies real well and about as ElectriCalc predicted. Who could ask for more!|
In-flight pic of Dan Parsons' Sea Fury from the Balsacraft kit:
48" w.s.; wt. 61 ozs.; area, 418 sq.in. Powered by the
speed controller, working into a MaxGR2.5 gearbox
turning a 10-8 aeronaut Glass Elektro prop. Ten Sanyo 1900SCR's supply
the go juice.
Typical flight: after a catapult launch; a turnaround and low pass flyby followed by a steep climb up to 300-400ft and then dive and levelling off at about 6 ft. immediately into a large, round loop, pulling out at 6 ft. Then a long slow roll, 4 & 8 pt.rolls; reverse Cuban eight; Immellman; vertical 4 pt.; inverted low pass with 1/2 outside loop pull-up. I may repeat several of these manuevers in a flight. In between manuevers I'm cruising around at about 1/4 power. Level flight speed timed at approx. 75 mph. Flight times 7-8 min. with some juice still left. Motor and controller not even warm. The performance of the MaxCim system is outstanding.
Ann Marie Cross, a Great Planes Product Support Manager is holding her
powered Giles202. She uses 20-RC2000 cells in
Solderless-Power-Tubes along with the MaxGR gearbox and
This IMAC capable plane weighs a bit over 6lb. and is able to hover with
an APC 16x6 prop.
A detailed review article from R/C Modeler Magazine is available on-line.
|Jack Sowle from Jackson, MI with his Kyosho CAP232 ARF, MaxNEO-13Y, 20 RC2000 cells, 7lb. One of the nicest guys you can have as a friend. Jack has a small fleet of electrics and attends many of the electric meets around the midwest and northeast. Chat with him if you get the chance.|
Stuart Christianson of British Columbia sent photos of his House of
Balsa P-51 Mustang and AT-6 Texan, both powered by
ESC with BEC.
He comments: "The 44" span, P51D flies great on 9-17oo mah cells, turning a 9*9 prop, for 5 to 8 minutes, depending on throttle. Switching to 11-1000mah cells and a 9*10 prop, this plane easily beats most .40 sized planes and has passed a .60 sized as well. flight time is maxed at 4 to 5 minutes, but it's worth it to beat up the glow fliers. The 44" span, AT6 Texan (we call them 'Harvards')also flies on either 9-1700 mah or 11-1000 mah cells turning 10*6 or 10*8 props. While a bit slower, it too is a hot little number that turns most glow fliers heads.Both of these aircraft will take off from a grass field!!!"
Norm Cecil with his scale electric fleet.
In the foreground is a Top-Flite P-47 equipped with Century Jet retracts and flaps. Its powered with a MaxNEO-13Y motor, 4.28:1 gearbox driving an 18x10 Menz prop, 25 cells into a Maxµ35A-25NB controller for an all up weight of 11 lb giving a wing loading of 35oz/sq.ft. This has a duration of about 6 minutes and "really cooks now" per Norm.
Next is an Extra300L, House of Balsa kit, MaxNEO-13D motor with a Maxµ35A-21 controller, 18xRC2000 cells, MEC 3.75:1 gearbox, APC-E 13x6.5 prop, Weight 7 lb.
And in the other hand a Fleet Biplane, Concept kit, MaxNEO-13D motor with a Maxµ35A-21 controller w/BEC, 14x1700SCR cells, AF 3.69:1 gearbox, APC-E 14x7 prop, weight 6.56 lb.
The lower photo shows a closeup of Norm Cecil's P-47.

|Paul Gleeson over in Germany has sent us a photo of his Great Planes Giles G-202, finished in oracover, all up weight a little over 7lbs. Powered by a MaxN32-13Y with MaxGR 3.75 gearbox on 20 cells with an APC 16x10 E-prop. Gives 34A static and 750W.|
