Default World Models Super Frontier Senior

I have electric fever. With this hobby I seem to stay sick all of the time. The Super Frontier Senior is a look alike for a Sig Kadet Senior.

I already have a Hacker B50 10L with 5.2:1 gearbox.

Hacker says the motor is rated for 14-20 cells.
I am planning on putting on a heatsink.

Would it be better on the motor if I ran more cells or less? I am planning on running 3300 NIMH batteries. 2 7 cell and 1 6 cell pack or would I be better off with 2 8 cell packs?

14 cells will be lighter. The plane was meant for .46 glow power. 20 cells is more appropriate on .60-size. With the wing area, though, it'll handle the weight of any cell count just fine.

I have a Super Frontier running a Mega 45-3, super box 2:1, 16 3000 nimh cells, 16x10 prop. THis plane has a lot of lift and climbs well. I have flown it as high as 1500 feet for aerial photography. see at www.pam-rc.org

Matt, what are your flight times?

Four_Stroker,

Did you get around to converting the Senior Telemaster to e-power. If so, may I ask what equipment you used.
I have one that I would like to try converting, but I don't want to spend money for equipment that might not be adequate.
