KMP Katana...Help me out

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Not knowing anything at all about electric,I would like to try electric on this plane..

It is supposed to weigh 11 lbs with an OS 160 and has 1440 sq. in. of wing area...Very light wing loading..

I would like to keep it as close to 11 to 12 lbs. as possible but have stupid power....Cost is not an issue if I go this way

I've looked at engines and it seems like a Hacker 60 might be a good choice...

I've looked at Duralite batteries but don't know which ones to buy...I will ONLY buy Duralites..So don't even mention other brands...Don't care how much better or cheaper you think they are..

Any help appreciated..

So this is what happens after you have owned every type and size of glow motor and small gas engine!!!!

Cool idea Jack, hope you can put that together. No fuel to worry about, no vibration, no flipping the prop to start, what more could ya ask for.
Awww crap my rudder fell off.
