RE: R200 Electric
Read your post on the electric Q-500, figured I would share some of the work my friend Rich Berner and I have done so far. We are hoping to get electric Q-500 going here in the northeast. Our goal is to match 424 Thunder tiger class racing. The results have been great so far, costs fairly low as well
Motor Eflite 25 870 kpv version
Batteries 5S 3000 40C Zippy Flightmax
Castle 60-80 speed control
Prop APC 9X9E
Flying wieght, performance is almost identical to a 424 Q-500. You can convert any existing Q-500 in a couple of hours. EF-1 around by us has not caught on, poor supply of planes and generally the sport electric guys don't care for the way the ARF flies. The Q-500 has been very well received-you are on the right track.
