Thanks. Once I sank my teeth on Electric Power, I forgot all about nitro/gas.

Thanks for accepting me - i already found some cool information here.
To show you a bit what i do - here's a video of a friends e-flite timber i shot a week ago on the Lake Geneva shore.
another one of my own catalina will follow soon

Welcome to Wattflyer, Speedamigo. Glad you joined us here.

That was a great video piece. Looking forward to seeing the Catalina.

My view...
 
Looking forward to being involved here. Hopefully I'm now getting back into flying after some years 'off'.

I started out many years ago slope soaring, and more recently (like most slopers I'd guess), electrics.
Flying my own designs, mainly my Tacho 'nosecone' jobbie which I produce in various configurations, from F3F, through thermal, slope aerobatic, to electric.

That's my 'next door' paddock, (Greendale, Victoria, Australia). :tc:
(I know... I could live in the suburbs, but, well, I'll have to put up with this).

Welcome, Jool’s.

AEAJR 03-22-2019 02:20 PM

@Jools,

Welcome. Nice to see another glider guider on the forum.

Rabbitcreekok 03-22-2019 03:47 PM

Welcome to Wattflyer, Jools. Glad to have another member from Australia. That paddock next door to you looks like a great place to fly anything. I live in the country but my place does not look like that.

I read up on what a UBEC is and found out on this site what I needed to know. Because I have SO much to learn I believe this is the spot for me !1 Thanks for accepting me.

Don Sims 08-13-2019 10:01 AM

Welcome Ivan!

Rabbitcreekok 08-13-2019 04:28 PM

Glad to have you here, Ivan. There is a wealth of information in the forums and a wealth of information in the heads of the members. Just ask for help if you need it.

borg187 08-25-2019 06:34 PM

Hey people, thought I'd give a little background about myself.
 
I started with glow fuel RC planes in 2003 when I also joined Fresno Radio Modelers Club. Then started with electric pusher prop jets from RCPOWERS in 2015. Then micro drones just recently. I'm glad to have found this forum. Thank you for your time Julio.
PS I'm still noobish like with drones, due to little amount of stick time I have.

Welcome to WF Borg!

Glad to have you at WattFlyer, Borg.

New Member Hello!
 
Hi,
Getting back into RC after many years. I have some glow planes I'd like to convert to electric and need to figure out what to do about radio equipment. My last radio was a Futaba 8UAP. I'm studying the "Everything you wanted to know..." section; thank you so much for that. If anyone flies or knows of a club near Tupper Lake, NY please let me know.
Thanks,
Michael

Rabbitcreekok 01-07-2020 03:52 PM

Welcome to Wattflyer, Michael. You are looking at the correct section for a start. There are those on here who can help with the conversions from glow to electric. It is just determining what motor-battery combo will work for a given plane. Unfortunately, I am not one of those who can help with that. Keep posting and someone will respond.

Don Sims 01-08-2020 01:20 AM

Welcome!

CHELLIE 01-08-2020 08:52 AM

Hi Michael :) Welcome to Wattflyers :) If your going to use your Futaba Radio on 72 MHz, only use Berg or Hitec Receivers, other 72 MHz receivers dont have the RF filtering to use on electric power systems, your Futaba radio from what I understand can be converted to 2.4 MHz check with Futaba, dont use Park Flier cheapy 2.4 receivers, only use full range receivers to prevent a Brown out on 2.4. Berg 72 MHZ receivers are out of production but can be found on EBay

Give us some info on the glow planes and engine you have and we can get you a Power system to go with it, I always like to use a 1 to 1 power ratio on my planes and some times a 2 to 1 power system :) MORE POWER :) you can always cut back on your throttle :) I have a plane that will take off in less than 5 feet on the ground with a 2 to 1 power ratio :) LOL

Thanks for the info Chellie. Futaba makes a 2.4Ghz conversion module but it seems to make more sense to put that money toward a new radio. I've always trusted Futaba but am almost convinced to get an 8 or 9 channel Spectrum. I'm planning on coverting my PT-40 trainer first to get my wings back. I'll post something about that once I do a little more research. Again, thanks!
