RE: After 5 yr layoff, first 2 flights on E powered Inspire
I was out of the hobby for 12 years (motorcycles and full scale flying). Got intrigued by e-power and picked up a used Uhu glider "ready to fly." Checked the things I knew about, climbed up the grandstand at the local high school. tossed the glider off unpowered, found I could still fly, turned the power on and I've never looked back. I now have more than 20 ready to fly e-powered planes ranging from a 19 inch flying wing to a 16 foot glider with warbirds, pattern planes, fun flyers etc in between.
Lately I've gone nostalgic and built an Eyeball from plans and am about to start an original VK Corben Super Ace.
PS after I learned more about e-power, I upgraded the Uhu's connectors (from automotive bullet type to Sermos), and changed to a Cam folder for a prop. Probably increased performance by 25% with these simple changes.
