I've decided to go for the electric version of this model as finding a flat field large enough to use my hi start, with 360* launching direction is posing to be something of a problem. An electric powered model will mean I can fly from a much smaller field. The model also has 80* dropping flaps which means I can land in a smaller area also.
Hollein recommend a Hacker A30 14L V3 motor but, these cost a lot more than I want to pay, so I've been trolling the net to find a cheaper equivalent. I think I've found one on the Pheonix MP site, a Tornado Thumper but, when you don't really know about motors its a bit of a mine field.
The ESC and battery shouldn't be a problem, nor the prop and spinner, but choosing the servos could be the next headache.
So I shall be ordering all these bits in October and, once I have the kit, it should keep me busy during the winter months building it ready for next Spring.
