Here's my 65" wingspan Skyshark Me-109F kit I converted to electric. It flys very smoothly and has great power. I userd an E-Flite Power 60, APC 15x10E prop, CC Phx60 ESC and TP 6s2p 4200 ProLites. It has Robart air retracts and the cowl and canopy open.

That is one beautiful airplane! My birthday is July 4th. If you ship it today, I'm sure I'll get it in time.

I saw that fly on Tuesday evening. Magnificent.

So Thunder, it seems we did run into each other at the field. Just didn't realize it!

Grasshopper, what's your address?

Mike you probably saw it before the meeting on Friday. It was down for maintenance until Friday of last week due to a busted prop.

I had a guy at the field video the model with my digital still camera. The results are less than pleasing but it's better than nothing. My dad was going to video the model with his video camera but getting him to the flying field is like pulling teeth. It's strange because when he has gone to the field, he seems to enjoy it.

D'oh! I meant Friday. Just prior to the meeting. I'm the big dude in the black FSA t-shirt.

I remember you. We should get together some time and fly. It would be nice if we started an FSA electric thread. The FSA thread on RCU is mostly gassers and electrics are treated like second class citizens.
