    Conversions for .10 size engines... ? Suggestions...?

    I've got an OS LA.10 and a Thunder Tiger GP .10 Can anyone suggest an electric ARF model to convert? I was thinking that one of the little AEROWORKS profile might be a good candidate.

    Length 35.5"
    Weight 16 - 17 ounces (ready to fly)

    It looks like a good candidate. Where do you get those? How much? I have a few .10's to use up too. Not too much out there. The LA will easily outdo the TT. I had a TT in a plane and it would hardly take of. The LA and FP were fine.

    Tower Hobbies sells them as well as AeroWorks. They also have a smaller SU-31 that looks like a .10 would fly.

    I would think it would be a real easy conversion.

    I wasn't notified, that was last year? Usually a 400 electric is like an .049, but that one looks ok for a .10. That would be about $100 to get up here. (different country) It looks like the motor could fit similarly to the electric in the picture. Maybe a piece of aluminum for a doubler or something, as the glows vibrate more than electrics.

    Didn't know that these planes existed. Thanks for posting. Just got through ordering one of each. Got a variety of .10 size engines for the Extra,and a Norvel .074 for the SU. Weights listed for each are very lite for such generous wing area. ......... George K.

    I have one of these Aerowrks planes that busted the nose. It might be fun to attempt a conversion. It is such a light plane and would need a bit beefing up in the fuse. These planes roll, and loop so fast. Let us know if you convert one.

    Extra has been completed for awhile. Just waiting for good weather. Looks like Thursday is gonna be the day. Will post the mods & flight result at the 1/2A forum. .... George K.
