Electric Flying

So who flies electric rc planes?

I've got a small collection...

-Eflite Mini Pulse (450)
-Super Cub (w/ tons of mods)
-Easy Star (Brushless)
-Soon to come a DX6i

I love em all.

Anyone else?

I have a bunch of videos on youtube under "gavinleet" of the supercub mods if you'd like to take a look.

I'm looking to get a trainer. Any suggestions? I want something I can bounce off the ground and be up and flying again ASAP.

The RC club I joined only allows helicopters during the last 15 mins of each hours (they aren't that strict unless it's really busy), so If I want to fly more than that I need a plane...

You will not be dissapointed with the hobbyzone supercub. All of my rc newcomer friends get them and have a great time. I've crashed it multiple times and she still flies strong.
But it doesn't stop there. Just because the supercub is a beginner plane doesn't mean it's a dead end. I've put ailerons, a bomb dropping mod and brushless motor setup on it already. If you'd like to take a look at my supercub videos they are on youtube under "gavinleet"

If not the supercub, then get a hobbylobby easystar. You can literally take off and set the radio down for 30 seconds before you have to pick it back up. It glides like a charm and it's a great plane for newcomers.

If you have any questions you can pm me

Can I buy a Supercub without the radio gear etc? I have a DX7 and like the idea of only needing one transmitter and the safety of 2.4Ghz so I don't screw up anyone elses models.

Not that i'm aware of. I believe this is the closest you can get

http://secure.hobbyzone.com/catalog/...ts/HBZSC0.html

Do you just have the dx7/receiver or do you have a motor setup as well?

I have the radio, receiver, batteries and charger. No motor.

I have a DX7 running my rock crawler so that it can control the rear steer, and eventually independent rear power... all of it is set up with velcro and quick releases. So I could swap it into a plane easily.

I have another full set up permanently going into my T-Rex, and the CX2 is also DSM2.

Cool
I have a DX6i on preorder for months now...They keep setting the date back... How's the DX7 work? Ever have any interference issues?
Have you flown/built planes before? And are you familiar with everything as far as servos, sc, motor and all of that jazz?

GWS Slow Stick. It's a great trainer, can take a decent beating, comes ARF (just add radio, receiver, servos, and battery), and can be replaced for about $35.

It's also easy to upgrade to brushless, and can be use for Aerial Photography.

Another good choice

yeah, blue housing foam. They're great for flying indoor since if you bounce one off a wall and smash it you can eather repair it with hot glue or just cut out a new piece, like $20 worth of foam gets you around 5 or more planes plus some extra parts.

i'll get some pics tomorrow and post them.
