There's a couple of us on RCG converting 1/6 scale Sterling Stearman's to electric... so it ought to work out to about the same size plane. I already did quite a bit of research on power-plants, so I thought I'd share:

I have a ton of 3S lipos so I planned to run them in series and parallel to make 6S2P 4400mah (That's 4x 2200mah 3S lipos). I will use a Turnigy 50-65A 400kv or Turnigy G60 motor to turn a 16x10 prop, which is "scale" for the Stearman. This is the same size motor as the Monster Power 60 or the E-flite Power 60 if you are retired and have lots of money to spend The big motor should help get weight forward for balance, and give me surplus power for efficient cruising or emergency thrust.

If you want to run on 4S, try the E-flite Power 46 instead with a 14x10 prop. Cheaper alternatives are the Monster Power 46 , or the Turnigy G46.

In-between the 46 and the 60 is the Turnigy 50-55B 600kv or Turnigy SK 50-55 580kv.

Congrats on retiring, getting married, the new house.... and getting back to the Fleet.

Does anyone have any info on Concept? I'm pretty sure I just picked up the 1/6th scale bipe at a swapmeet. Do they have a URL? Any product support? I can't seem to find them via standard searching methods.

Thanks!
Chris

This answers all of your questions about Concept Models. Apparently, the 'concept' did not prove to be worthy of sustained life in todays economy.
