New to Electric RC - What plane & motor?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey Guys,

I think it is time to jump into the electric world. I have been flying everything from big gassers to little 2 stokes. Over the last couple of years I only fly 4 strokes , but I can't get out to the field until it drys usually the end of May. The school yard seems like a great alternative.

What would you recommend for an electric outfit?

I just saw a couple of fellows flying a 25 sized stick with an electric setup very appealing. It had unlimited vertical and great aerobatic capability nice & small too.

Anyone have an outfit they would like to sell?

Thanks in advance for the info

I'm not sure what kind of flying you're looking at doing but I have a couple of suggestions (sorry none of my planes are for sale):

1) SuperFly or HyperFlea by SuperFly RC, here is the video you should watch:
I had an older version of the SuperFly which I loved. It was easy to build and is tough as nails and most importantly very fun to fly.

2) E-Flite's Ultimate FX 3D, here is a video:
Mine would fly just like the one in the video but I'm not a great 3D flyer, never the less a great plane. I use a cheap United Hobbies motor with either an 800mah or 1300mah battery.

3) Parkzone Stryker if you like jets. Here is a video of me flying in a school yard:

4) Multiplex EasyStar, If you're looking for some relaxing flying this is the ultimate. Very smooth and enjoyable. Here is a video at the same school yard: The video does not show anything fancy but it will loop from level flight and it glides like there's no tomorrow. I can easily fly for 30 minutes on one pack if I just send her up and glide back down.

If any of these sound interesting I can post more details about my setups.
