Default Kyosho T-33 questions

I picked up a used T-33 at a swap meet this evening. The airframe looks to be in good condition and includes the DF unit with motor.

No tip tanks though. Anyhoo, With Lipos and light radio gear what can I expect from this bird? How much current? Am I crazy?

Wait. Don't answer that last question!

You can expect a very nice flying plane. It is not super fast becase of all the frontal area. However these were really good first EDF planes one 1999 technology.

Today the best setups are coming in around 25 oz AUW with a Mega brushless and lipo. Do a search at rcgroups for user "meteor" and Kyosho. Lots of good reading.

Go for the gusto!!!!

Mega 16/20/2 on 4S with a Kamdax IC rotor; draws around 48 amps at 730 watts under 40 oz.

FUN

Thanks for the info. I was looking the tired old bird over and not sure if it's worth the effort.

Need to think about it some more.
