Default Super Senorita ARF

I picked up a Senorita from Nitro Planes and noted that this version is set up as electric. I have a .36 TT Pro from another project and really wanted to use it with the Senorita. Will this work? What reinforcements or modifications would be necessary to prepare the airframe for glow? I am not very experienced and do not know if the plane can handle the glow vibrations and torque. The construction on this 63" version looks good and undamaged. Also, any suggestions on converting this plane to a tail dragger? Thanks, Mac

This is about the easiest electric to glow conversion because the Seniorita was originally designed for .15 to .25 glow engine - the electric version has the same construction with the addition of ailerons. Fuel proofing the firewall is about the only modification you'll need to make to convert to glow.

SIG uses the same video for both versions on their website.

To convert to a taildragger, move the mains to about 1" behind the LE of the wing and add a tailwheel.
