Default Avonds F-15

Looking for a set of Robart struts for a avonds F-15. If you have a set you don't need please contact me. Thanks John

No, I don´t wish to part with my struts but I am thinking about an electric conversion of my Avonds F-15. Have you done just that? If so, can you say anything about it?

I purchased one rtf but needed lots of tlc. Then I purchased a kit of the same to do up nice. I love it, short flights but really cool. Sorry for the delay, John

Thanks! I think I´ll get a Schubeler fan and substitute it for the P-80 that's in it now. The ting I'm a bit uncertain of is how to construct he outlet. Do you use the original outlet for the ducted fan version or have you constructed your own? At present my F-15 has the stainless steel outlet for a turbine but I don't think that is very appropriate.

I did not build it but looks all stock. Usually if the plane was designed around a glow DF it will work fine for electric.

Sounds identical to mine. I had one years ago with a P60 in it. No where real close to fly it so it got old and I sold it. Having so much more fun with the electric than the turbine.

JSZ, post some pics. One of these days I will get an Avonds F-15 to do electric. I saw one fly waaaay back in the early 90s on a ramtech and fell in love with it.

I have flown at that field as a guest of the Klingenbiels.
