Hey my dad has an alpha .40 that I want to convert to electric for him..... Wanna use components from hobbyking if possible. Also would like to use 3 cell 2200 mah batteries as well if possible cause I'm buying him a park zone t-28 as well. Can anyone give me some recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Proud owner of a Hitec A9!!

Re: Convert alpha 40 trainer to lekky power.....

This may give you an idea of what they recommend for the ARF version which can't be that different.

I have one which is powered by a Turnigy 36-48 and it flew well on a 3S 3600, however I haven't flown it myself. I had it test flown by a very experienced pilot and he felt it had sufficient power but I've seen the one you have with much more power & it was impressive (performance wise).
