Electric Sig Phazer ideas?
Hi, I have owned a few of these airplanes in the past and would like any info if anyone has done the Sig Phazer electric conversion... I am not sure if this setup will be too heavy but my glow ones flew great on a OS 20... plus it took airborne with that setup before you knew it. Thanks for any ideas. Jeff.

do a search in the forums and gather info... you´ll soon find that we need to know more abour your convertion to be able to help. size of the plane, approx weight, performance, wanted, is this on a budget and so on...

Did one for Electric Sig Phazer... found nothing. But if I do build another I will be sure and give more information. Jeff.

there are many simular configs around, replaceing a 15 or 25 motor is one of the most common convertions. 3cell li-po anx AXI 2820 or so

Ok, thanks, Just got into electrics with my Zagi...then changed it from the stock setup to one with a R-cer Warp 4 brushless 3 turn, CC35 amp ESC and have now 3 battery packs from Thunder power 3 cell 2100 mah. So if the battery packs are simular to what people are using on what I plan on doing then this is even better :) Also got a Astro .20 5 turn with CC25 ESC for X-Mas that I have not used yet....I will look into the motor listed above and get something going here...if it even comes close to what my Zagi does with my setup then it's going to be fun! Thanks Jeff.

RE: Electric Sig Phazer ideas?
You have to widen your search parameters from "Sig Fazer" to ".40-size profile" or something to that effect. Sig's Fazer is the granddaddy of today's 3D profile models. There are many conversions of similar models on the books.

How much does the box say the Fazer should weigh? Power loading, or "Watts per pound" is the driving factor in an electric conversion. It's basic physics; you need a certain amount of horsepower to move a certain amount of weight against gravity, and aerodynamic drag. The faster you want to go, or the harder you want to accelerate, the more power you need. Glow power is just "crowbar in the biggest engine that will fit" because engines are fairly light and inexpensive. You could do the same thing with electric, but you have weight and cost considerations to deal with.
