Default Anybody put electric power on a Demon or Lickety split?

I just got the plans and are putting together the necessary stuff to build a lickety split. Planning on using an axi 2826/08 with opto 70 amp speed control and 11.1 400 mah battery. I had this setup on a shrike with good results (until it found the pipe at the landfill) not sure of accual speeds but it looked fast. Just wondered if anyone else is using electric. I will post pics when i get that far. skyflyer

Howard Stern featured an electric lickety-split on his show, and the video made its usual rounds, but I don't have a copy.

Out of all the kits I sold there were about 10 that were going to use electric power. So far I have not had one flight report on an electric Demon. The "(Something Fast?) Delta build thread" shows a few electrics that have not flown yet but getting close.
