Well its really easy, I shouldnt say that, cuz i dont like electric at all, I dont have any electric airplane, but here's your solution;

(1) Hacker A60-18L
Brushless 2600W 149k/V Outrunner $230

(1) MasterSPIN-99-OPTO ESC $380
(1) A60 Acro Style Prop Adapter $16.50
(1) APC 24x12 E-Prop $25
(2) Thunder Power 22.2v 5000mAh 20C $440

all prices from www.aero-model.com

Thats a good engine for a 14 to 18lbs A/C with almost all you need to set it up... I think its better if you buy a 4 stroke engine even a Gemini 160 or any Saito engine you want !! better than spend all that on a good electric setup.

good luck,


Daniel

SATCH,
Before you spring for the high dollar name brand stuff check out Hobby King. www.hobbyking.com
You'll be able to equip your bird for about 1/3 the price of name brand or even less.

I have 60 to 120 and larger, VQ/Hangar9/NitroPlanes/etc. Even have one bird with a 9 1/2 Foot w/s. ALL ELECTRIC, and have had great luck with HK's stuff.

For example an AXI Gold 4120-18 from Hobby Lobby is on sale for $131.24
Motor from HK, Turnigy 50-55A, a 4120-18 clone is $29.99

Similar motor to the Hacker recommended previously anywhere from $60 to $120 from HK, I used the $60 versions on my VQ.

Packs, again the previous at $440.00, HK has em for $49.48 each or less then a C note for both.

I had roughly $1500.00 for motors/esc's/packs in my NitroPlanes 90" P-38, going name brand. AXI motors, Castle esc's, and Hyperon packs.
In my VQ 83" P-38 less then $500 going the Hobby King route, going Turnigy motors/esc's, and Zippy packs.

Thing too with the HK stuff, if something goes south, which call me lucky if you will but hasn't happened, you can buy 3 or 4 of an item for the price of a name brand.

Not to act like a HK sales person, I'm not, but hate to see someone spend big bucks when they don't have to.

Whats up? Get all this electric stuff out a here! Go over to RCgroups. Lots of lecky's hang out there! This place is for glow convertions.
Go hang out with Al Gore and everything "green". WE burn liquid fuel around here. With real smelly, oily exhaust.[>:]

Hey, wiseguy, read the OP text

Quote:
THERE A ELECTRIC BRUSLESS OUT THERE THAT CAN HANDLE A PLANE THIS SIZE?
and yours

Quote:

And then the title of this forum: "Electrics to Glow Conversions".

Am I dyslexic or are those folks that cannot read properly what is written and still think they're right?

Like Scale dail said, RCG have both fora, Glow to Electric and Electric to Glow, not RCU, we still like to have real engines on our planes

Man, you really are dumb, aren't you, kid?

A thread and a forum are different things. Do you go to a BMW dealership to have an overhaul on a Chevy or Suzuki?

Hey I've got an idea! Go over to the gas powered car forum here on RCU, and ask if you should dye your hair pink or the like and how to bake a cake. Completely off subject for that forum. Spammer[:'(]

Son, ask [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/forumid_132/tt.htm]here[/link], if you want real help.

The link above has been posted up on this thread indicating the proper forum for this type of questions.


Paternal figure alert:

Also, read more books (you know, paper things, found in libraries), you need more practice on proper reading and writing, in trying to better understand what people are really trying to convey - tell - in their message (which you obviously did not, from your replies).

The link has been fixed. But if you'd read what I said

you'd go up the page a bit and find the link.

Don't mention the lesson; but it wasn't sociology related, it was basic English, primary grade.

This forum here on RCU is the Glow to Electric forum:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/forumid_132/tt.htm

The folks in there should be able to help you.

Of course, your Stearman will sound pathetic with an electric motor in it. But hey, different strokes for different folks.

You really should put a nice Saito radial glow engine on it. [sm=thumbup.gif]

This Forum is for converting electric designed airplanes to be powered by glow or gas engines. the original poster in here like happens a lot misreads the forum and thinks its the other way around. the orginal poster did put in his subject GAS to Electric but this forum is for the other way around.

The other guys in here though there is no need for calling some one stupid and calling them names.


For the Original poster there is an all Electric forum here on RCU. If click o nthe Forums section on the top in the Blue area just under the Rc Universe Globe you will get better answers there.
