Default World Models EP Warbirds

World Models EP Warbirds.

These are rare in the fact that they have retracts. When I crash my Great Planes Spitfire, I will select one of these to convert for my Saito .40:

Has anyone considered converting these?


As a bonus you get a free brushless motor to power an air-boat or something.

I have the Zero version, have had it for over a year maybe two. I have definitely thought about converting it.

I presume one would have to install a plywood firewall, but that is par for all electric-to-glow conversions that I've done so far.
I do like the fact that most electric planes have hatches. I like to see how much fuel I've used, and to hide the on-off switch and charge plug.

I am sure the OS .30 would haul the mail in any of these planes. I figure a 4-stroke .30 is 375 watts of power, or so....
I might buy a used Saito .30 one day. Not much reason for Saito re-release it (not counting the Gold Version), since there's so few planes made for small engines anymore...THUS, this forum!

I presume the covering on these World Model planes can withstand a little bit of glow exhaust....

I'm not too hip on the Watts thing yet as far as converting lekky to glow. But based on the size of the plane I was thinking a .10 or .15 would be adequate for scale flying.

yes, 2 stroke .15 would be more than enough.
