Built as plan for me, electric version. Sports model finish or made to look military ? I don't know yet.

Probably need help with the choice of motor etc, all the lecky stuff I've built flys well but I'm always disappointed with the flight times, 10 minutes + would be nice.

First twin, so new for me, like the lines of it and the wing section, looks a good un. yes

Certainly looks a good un, John.

I'm struggling myself with EP specs at the moment, but I'm sure some gurus will show you the way.

I guess AUW and ground / fuselage clearance for your props will be the dictating factors here. angel

Interesting comment John, I get 10 mins with my Skywriter set up using a 3300 mAh battery . I never fly to more than 80% capacity and it is generally more like 70% unless I tear round the sky a bit !

So my very limited experience with electric set up says go for the largest capacity battery you can fit .

Remains to be seen what endurance I get from the Tigercub but again I went for the biggest I could fit which was a 3700 mAh. Many will say that spending money on a premium battery is better value as they hold their voltage for longer and for same wattage requirement use less amps and therefore flight time is better.

That was certainly the advice I got from George at 4 max and I having got one of his LiPo’s I have not been dissapointed.

I don't think it's the gear I'm using Tim, more like it's me not choosing the correct package.

Flown in a scale like manner, lovely, what a sound. face 1
