Default Electric to glow

My 2 cents after a day at the field
Electrics: start right up, run the same every flight, never a dead stick - BORING!!
Glow or gas - starts right up, runs the same every flight, never a dead stick - REWARDING!!
Thanks for looking, Joe Butch

LOL Butch. My take on electric power. Starts right up, need the correct size prop to not overload and fry ESC or batteries and make it through 8 minutes of flight but enough prop to provide required amount of thrust to fly maneuvers well, set throttle curve, set brake, provide enough airflow so things donít heat up. Fly sequence below well enough to be competitive, REWARDING.

Hello speedracerntrixie, Good response, I truly appreciate everything aviation related and anything that flies. Yes, I can now appreciate the effort required for your best flights and success with electric power. Amazing time we live in with amazing technology. Thanks for your time and reply, keep having fun. Remember, life on the edge, should not be the edge if the couch. I believe you understand this.
Thanks and best regards, Joe Butch

Joe, I think we are on the same page. I do enjoy glow and gas power as well. Need to keep up with the times however and some of my models simply wouldn’t be possible without electric power.
