Hi Syd
Right on one part - small models are not for the faint of heart! Also,it is nice to come home not smelling of burnt oil. My S.U., with no aeromodelling background, never cared for the smell of burnt castor.

By way of irony, my e models ended up much bigger than anything I ever flew on glow. 25 was my glow upper end, though my custom design/build service knew how to make them outrun much larger models. Even ended up in IMAA territory with a Sig 1/5th scale Cub.

Have now reverted to smaller - 4S - e-power, on account of being a tightwad who doesn't care to lug big models around.

Trivial holiday point - Ken Myers was the guy who showed me how to get my electrics to where they could exceed my slimers in performance. He's one of the best in our hobby.
