    Great Planes Cub from 1.10 SAITO to Electric

    RC Guys,

    I have a wonderful Great Planes Classic Cub that Im thinking about converting to electric.

    Right now it sits as below:

    Motor: SAITO 110 -> might sell this motor if anyone needs one. mint condition.
    Prop: 13 inch Nylon
    Weight: 10-15lbs
    Wing span: 84 inches



    MY IDEA: hahahahahaa, Electric. I want to make this bird easy to take out and fly.
    ***Ive been flying now for 5 years. But I have a hard time with flying this setup
    and I have noone around to fly with.

    So...

    I ordered a TURNIGY G110
    https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...dProduct=14407

    What Im wondering is this... [:-]

    They call for an 85amp HV esc and a 17x8 prop with an 8S battery.

    But.... right now it has a 13 inch prop on it. Im wondering if a 17' will even fit without touching the ground?

    Right now at home I have a Castle Ice 75 amp esc which I could run this motor with a 6S battery.
    Im wondering if this would work. Just use a little smaller prop. Personally I think the 110 SAITO is overpowering
    for the Cub anyway. It doesnt need crazy power. I just want to sunday and sport fly a little.

    You guys think that setup would work or do I need to by an 85hv and 8S setup for my cub? $$$ [:@]

    Hope you are all well, Happy New Years guys! Happy flying in 2011!!!
