Astro-flight Challenger... 550 motor, 7-cells

The out-of-production Astro Flight Challenger flies well with a geared 550 motor .. This one also flies with an OS 1 FP... which has even better performance.. After the "tragedy" with the first one, this built from the plans.. flew just as well.

Menagerie of e-powers

E-hots, Mirage w/E-hots wing, Eclipse, Oly II The Mirage handles all sorts of wings.. Electra, Eclipse, Challenger, Hots..a good cheap test bed.. E-HOTS sadly flies better with an OS 15 FP than it can on electric power. The Mirage has flown with an OS 10 FP, with the wing on -backwards-..... See http://www.networkone.net/~pjburke/backwing.htm for the flight photos

Midwest Electric Hots... 550 motor, 7 cells...

Very aerobatic, but the vertical suffers when it's e-powered.
