What's this going in Trevor? I have always wanted to try a large electric!
LOL!! I noticed the mini-crusher after I posted the picture!!! I like to keep it visible as a scare tactic!! Actually, Jen borrowed it to hang a picture frame, LOL. Needless to say, levelling of said frame has now been added to my to-do list

I'll be putting the Q80 and Jeti ESC in the Hostetler Beaver with one of those new sound systems (no speakers - transducers instead). However I've also been told that I'll be getting a prototype VPP system in the New Year for testing. If that comes to fruition, it'll go in a 100cc airframe in the spring with 12S-8000 and the VPP system for 4D.

The big electrics are a really cool feel for 3D (mucho-torque) but never was a fan of the charging. Now that I have a generator and battery prices have come down, it's not as much of big deal anymore

I was thinking you were going all electric and the GP.123 would see its final tune!

Very interested in your testing with the new VPP system..
