1st Flight of 2014

My Daddy-O is still flying strong. This starts the 4th year of this plane! Still no mishaps and the Hacker motor is still going strong. I've bumped up the prop to a wood 12x6 from HeadsUpHobby. ...

She flies great! I got a chance to take her out today and flew 6 nice flights! All with light 2200 mAh 3S packs. The new motor is hot! I think it's as quick as the old motor on 4S batteries. But with...

P51nut,

Your plane turned out great! I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine. The plane just flies great. How many P51s can knife edge all the way around the field?

Chellie is spot on. Any of the brushless 400 sized motors would work nicely. This is the one in my EVA and it's plenty of power with a GWS 9050 prop.
