Another newbie here, returning to R/C after about 11 years off (most of which I spent flying full size). I'm into both heli's and fixed wing, have got my T-Rex up and flying, and will soon start on building a 30" span Curtiss Jenny rubber powered model and converting it to electric R/C.

I love building and scale models, for me traditional all built up balsa is the way to go. Complex laser cut kits are delights to me

All the best

I didn't have many dead sticks but I got tired of wiping all of the oil off of the plane and watching all the decals come off from being oil soaked, not to mention fueling and defueling.

After all these years I'm going to give electrics a go. This looks like the place to start.

Hi Everyone,

Newbie to electric here. My wife bought me my first electric this Christmas.
It's an Ikarus Pitts S1-S. Just waiting for the battery to arrive through the post. Then, hopefully, first flight this weekend.

By the way, excellent site. Look forward to using often.

HI All

I've been doing the EZONE for quite a few years and it's nice to see a Website like the good old day's of Ezone...Electric only

I'm into scale Electric Models of all sizes and sorts, scratch build,ARF's,parkfly, EDF's, Fighters,bushplanes...Heck I may even try a Chopper etc

Nice to be here.

Bruce

if it's a kit, the best tip pre-power setup is to build it light at the rear, or heavy at the front. this will help assist in any CoG issues that you may have inherent in your kit as most kits were/are built still for glow, so it isnt really an issue...the electric setup will most likely weigh alot less than youor glow/fuel setup.

so allow for this and you wont have to add weight at the nose or stuff the batteries right up against the firewall when you finish.

Just trying to think ahead.

Tim.

Recently found this site thorugh a loooong thread on lipos - interesting reading!

I've been flying fixed wing for 20yrs, helis for 15yrs and returned just over 18 months ago after a 3 year break. I read a modelling mag, saw the improvements in electric flight and thought I'd have a go - 20+ lipo packs later plus numerous brushless motors I only fly electric fixed wing, no dirty glow engines, but relent for a 50 size Raptor heli although I've recently bought a Swift 16

I've been flying mainly park flyers and I'm now progressing in size with a Ripmax Spit, a Flair Beaufighter to build and considering going electric with Hanger 9's Mustang - love IIWW fighters.

Well following directions and saying hello. Just bought a Blade CP and am at the point where I'm practicing hovering side-in. Have really enjoyed reading the forum so far. Love the layout, speed and wealth of info!

Hi everyone. I'm new to electrics, but have heard it thunder a few times doing everything from 1/2 A freeflight through turbine helicopters and now the big birds. Electric flight appears to be a different challenge and so far I like what I see.

Just got my Kantana mini yesterday and hope to have it in the air by next weekend. I'll be flying it on the ham band, channel 04 so I shouldn't bother all the big guys at the flying field.

The web site looks great. I'm glad I happened across it.
