Default Kadet senior electric conv.



I have not been in the hobby for a long time, but i am really leaning toward going electric. Partly because I'm a hippie and partly because Nitromethane is freaking expensive! I have never messed with electric and don't know much about it. i have Kadet senior kit that I have been working on. I'm currently on deployment to Afghanistan and i want to finish this project whenI get home and I would very much like to convert it to Electric, but i need some help. I was wondering if someonw could give me some ideas and point me in the right direction now so i can get started as soon as I get home.I need help choosing a motor, esc, and anything and everything else i would need to fly electric. Any advice is much appreciated thanks!

How much does the plane weigh,  4 to 5 lbs?   If so,  I would use a Power 25 motor,  with a 60 amp Castle esc and 10 amp Castle bec.  With this setup, you can use a 4s pack.  The Castle system I mentioned can handle up to 6s.

Give us a little more detail about your planes weight and what kind of performance you're looking for. We can give you a much better suggestion if you do.

okay well I am looking to have the ability for slow flight but at the same time able to do some very basic acrobatics when i want to. I imagine the plane will weight anywhere between 5.5 up to maybe 8 lbs depending on what batteries i use(another issue all together). i want good flight times where I can fly a good 15 minutes and swap batteries to go again. Iam also needing help on choosing a charger and I was also wondering what kind of charge times I can expect. Basically I want a fairly spirited plane and decent flight times as well as some advice on batteries and such(a little advice on what brand of brushless motors would be awsome too). Thanks for all the advice.
