The firewall relocation is complete and the final weight is 11 pounds 5 oz. a reduction of 6 oz.

RE: Brio - Glow to Electric

Since battery weight can vary drasticly from one manufacture to the next I thought a tray that could slide
on rails would be nice. To prevent the tray from sliding in flight a locating tab could be...

RE: Brio - Glow to Electric

RE: Brio - Glow to Electric

Darn your right, I typed in 22.22 for two packs..... it is 22.22 for each pack!

3 blade prop for Electric ?

Searching the forum for prop info on the Haker A60 I see 20.5" x 14" two blade
as a good starting point. That will require me to lower my landing gear on the

RE: LiPo sources

I ended up ordering a couple sets of 25c NanoTech. They had them in the USA

Not my first choice but hopefully they will work out.
