    More and more RC …
    More and more RC models are going to batteries because the of rising costs of nitro. A plane this size I would have used a Gasoline motor, a couple bucks a gallon, and a gallon of gas you are good to go all day plus not near the mess of nitro. Batteries ok but the heat on the ESC, cost of Lipo’s is high and the long charge time needs improvement, not to mention Lipo’s can explode if they get to hot or get damaged in the least bit. But this is a model I would love to add to my collection..

    Nice flying, nice …
    Nice flying, nice model!
    However, electric is good for maybe 10 minutes, if you want to fly for a longer you’ll need a case of batteries… gas or glow will give you the entire day of fun. Besides the engines are part of the thing, you know.

    Then, you’ll need to get your model flying as realistic as possible – power is not an issue, they’ll fly just fine with electric or gas/glow.

    If you consider the weight of the batteries + motor, gas/glow may be even lighter based on my experience.

    An electric motor …
    An electric motor has an efficiency of 90%. Glow engines have an efficiency of only 15% – 20%. The electric has the same torque at low RPM as with high RPM, while glow engines are very weak at low RPMs. I know for sure you get more power with a electric, but it is hard to compare directly between electric and nitro because of the two different technologies. The cost/power/weigth ratio is better on electric. No doubt. I’ll never go back to nitro again. Some nostalgia with nitro, but that’s all.

    U dont get more …
    U dont get more power with a electric! And the electric ‘Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee’ Is more anoying! Nitro Sounds BETTER!

Got something to say?
