Hi All,
I'm new on this board and would like some advice on gas to electric conversion for two specific planes listed for sale on raidentech.com.
I'll include as much info as possible:
P-51D----------------------------------P-40 Warhawk
wingspan 66.9"--------------------------wingspan 64.6"
wing area 857.8sq"-----------------------wing area 709.4sq"
weight 7.9lbs.----------------------------weight 7.5-8.5lbs
fuselage 57.4"----------------------------fuselage 52"
recommended eng. 2C .61-.75-------------eng 2C .61-1.00
4C .91-----------------------------------4C .91
$119.00 --------------------------------$189.00
I'm still new to this hobby and still flying a gas trainer but would like to look into getting these planes for later on when I have more experience. Thanks for the help.
