Default 24" Guillows Storch Vintage kit

This is in another forum, but figured it fits here too.

Just flew today and flies well with rud/elev controls.

This has the second BP Hobbies ZX Tech 2.4 gram receiver I have bought, which perform well. They seem to be a near copy of the JMP, although much cheaper. The outrunner is a 8.7gm ELE from BP, but seems to be the same micro outrunner popular from Hobby King for $10. Using a TBird-6 and 2 BA 2.5gm servos brings the gear weight up to a bit over 20gms, which is ideal for these micro Guillows conversions. Been using a 3s-300 Full River batt in this and an EDF30 jet, which seems to be at least good for 15C, and is an impressible little batt. While 2s may be ample with a 5030 prop, the plane is anything but underpowerd on the 3s setup with a 4.5" prop. This gear combo has become my setup of choice for these small conversions, and is also flying well in a Guillows Cessna 150. Both planes fly well at 1/2 throttle.
