Newbie in EP...

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

I'M looking to transfert from big gas plane to a more easy handling Hangar 9 Saratoga EP, but I dont know anything about the EP system, they talk about 60-Amp Pro Switch-Mode BEC Brushless ESC, Power 46 Brushless Outrunner Motor, 670Kv, 3850mAh 4-Cell/4S 14.8V Pro Power 30C LiPo, how long could we fly with this type of battery, how could I know when I have to land, do I have to use nicad pack for the radio system.

Can I use my Hobbico Elite Pro charger for the lipo, ect ect...

Like you can see, I'm a realy newbie in EP

Thank you for your help.

Re: Newbie in EP...


For sure it is confusing to start! So, what I recommend is take a look at one of the many sites that cover the basics. This is especially important as the batteries used can be quite a fire hazard if handled incorrectly.

Here is a place to start that will help with some of the terminology:

There are probably many others, but this has a ton of stuff in.

Welcome to to the nice quiet clean world of EP. Nothing like flying in a local park at 6AM on a Sunday know that you are not upsetting anyone


Go fly before it is too late!
