Great Planes Ultimate Bipe 160 ELECTRIC!!

New postby Metalhead on Fri Oct 19, 2012 7:13 pm

Hi guys,

Just a quick note to let you know that tomorrow i am picking up my new Ultimate!!! WHOOO HOO!

Here is a link to the model...

http://www.greatplanes.com/performance/ ... a1307.html

She has a 65 inch wingspan and is meant for a 160 glow engine, but i will be flying it with a Hacker A60-16M electric motor, using a 100 amp Castle Creations ESC and running twin 5 cell 5000mah batteries in series.

There are 6 Hitec 5496 servos for the ailerons and rudder, and a HT- 5665 servo for the rudder....

Unfortunately, this is a "christmas preasent" from my wife, although she doesn't know it yet...lol

So, i will not be flying it untill the spring, but it is going to be one HOT airplane!!!

I may have to change my avatar...lol
