    SIG Bf 109 conversion to nitro ?

    Has anyone considered putting a small (or large) nitro engine & maybe retracts too into the new Sig Bf 109 ARF that was originally intended to be electric ?[8D]
    Any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

    because I have loads of nitro engines laying around, and I like the sound of the engines

    Why not? A nitro will give a bit more power for the wieght, longer flight times, reduced cost and of course, the sound.

    Thansk for that clarification Evil Merlin...
    I guess no one has decided to try this conversion.
    The plane really needs retracts too.
    I have too many irons in the fire to go after this one, though it could be a fun lil' project.

    WOPW !!! A 50cc in a 25cc bird!?!? Well, I guess it needed the weight anyway, so might as well make it go to some use.~
    Looks really great G-Pete!

    I think the problem is the Bf 109 from Sig is still a little too new.

    Not a lot of people have it yet.

    electric= more power faster and can stay in the air longer then nitro they just don't make the noise most people like to hear.
