CARF Hawk powered by a DS-94HST. 14s 10,000mAh packs (8kw)

This was its second flight of three today. Still keeping it short while the packs get used to delivering 180A...

Excellent....Loved it. Thanks for the post.

Electric power is evolving so quickly, the sky's the coin a phrase..........blush

My new project, nowhere near as cool as the Hawk, is an electrified DB Cirrus moth.

I have also converted a few "vintage" models too, mostly beside fitting differences re motors, the only alterations are to the thrust lines due to the extra power available.

Lovin' it......Did I already say that ??

Dad was more the ST man (Mick) than me, but I still know one end of a glow plug from another.

Yes, one of the reasons for doing it was to prove and show it could be! Electric can power just about anything, its still not low cost though compared to fuel burning.
