My First electric plane was this eagle II. I built it with a hatch to make the battery pack accesable. I used a geard Maxcim motor with 14 cells. Flew great. Good plane to learn with. I called Tom Cimato at Maxcim and he guided me through the selection of motor/ battery and chrger. Very nice guy. Not cheap equipment though.
