Here are some photos of my Brushless converted Su. Notable features:
- 5g brushless motor.
- 2cell lipo mounted in an extended belly slot.
- Carbon stiffeners in both elevator and rudder.
All up weight with brushless conversion and carbon stiffeners is 38g, only a couple of grams up on stock... flies like you would expect
My bad, Steve is absolutely correct on the arm adjust. I thought about that twice when I typed it and still got it backwards
Steve: very nice motor conversion, yours should fly like what people were hoping for when it came out. Are you still using the stock receiver/ controller?
