Default 3D Heckler

I bought a 3D Heckler. Its well built, and a super light airframe. I'm wondering if anyone has done a conversion on one ?

Can you point us to a website? Just by looking at the airplane's specs, someone should be able to provide you with an electric power system that'll make the plane fly SWEEET

This looks to be just a bit lighter than the Modeltech Magic and a slew of those have been converted. It looks like a good candidate for either an AXI 4120 or a Mega 22/30/2 geared.

If it will clear a 15X10:
I recommend a Mega 22/30/2 geared 3.33:1 on a 4S4P or 14 sub C nimhs

If it will clear a 16X10:
I recommend the same motor and battery geared 4:1 instead

AUW electric should be about 71 oz (Glow should be about 64 fueled)

The above combos will give you about 120 oz of thrust. or a 1.6:1 Thrust to weight ratio.
