Are there any good electric TBM (TBF) or SBD Daunless kits or ARFs out there? I've seached but came up empty. I just started flying R/C a few months ago with the PZ FW-190:D and love it to death but I'm looking for a good winter project. I have a budget of about $150-$200 :( (for the kit alone, willing to go higher if its really good). I'll decide on equipment later.
If nothing I'll settle for nitro.

Hi Eric,
A couple months ago I built a 30" Dauntless from:


Maybe smaller than you had in mind, but it flies nice and is well under your budget. You could probably buy the kit, covering, servos and brushless motor for under $200. At 11oz, I only enjoy this model in dead calm conditions, but it looks very real in the air.

I also considered the Skyshark SBD, which is .40 size and would of course need to be converted to electric:) . Now we are talking spending some money.

Good luck, Steve
