Default .60-size Graupner ShowFlyer Conversion

Hi,

The Graupner ShowFlyer is a highly pre-fabricated ARF for 3D style aerobatics. It is distributed in the U.S. by Hobby Lobby Int. and is designed for a .60 size glow engine.

For my conversion, I used the popular MaxCim 13Y brushless motor, a Model Electronics Corporation (MEC) MonsterBox 6:1 (96T spur, 16T pinion), and an APC 20x11 e-prop on 24 cells of Sanyo CP1700SCR. I had an opportunity to try the newer MaxCim Max35-25BEC Controller with BEC (Battery Eliminator Circuit) for my project. Previously, for the BEC function, users were limited to the 21-cell controller. The BEC feature reduces the weight of the plane almost 4oz by eliminating the need for a receiver battery pack. Additionally, the hassle of keeping the receiver battery properly charged is also eliminated.

For more information about my glow-to-electric conversion, go here.

Holy cow!

Is that the Lithium packs going up in smoke?!?!

Or is the ShowFlyer just trying to mimic the jet trail?!

Well, it could also be a new R/C smoke system that works for both glow and electric planes...stay tuned...
