Now when I say scratch build or kits I don’t mean foam kits. Let’s just be honest here this hobby was founded on balsa ply construction and has been proven to work since the early 1920s. Now I’m not cracking on the “FOAM” community but I’m not convinced that electric is better than glow/gas. Anything from 40 size up it’s not worth getting electric motors speed controllers batteries a lot of money for any 40 size up. And have half the power and flight time cut in half. I have been in this hobby for 8 years and my father has 40 years in RC. We have old super Tigre 49 that he bought in 1988 and never been rebuilt still kicking like the Italians wanted it to. So I want to see if any electric motor can last 30 years of flying with no problems. The point of this post is to try to get people that think building and tuning a engine is hard and it’s not believe me I just want people to build and fly airplanes like it was meant to be glow and gas airplanes fly like real airplanes they really do. My brother got in to the hobby couple years back he has foam electric and balsa electric airplanes and he will be the first to tell you that balsa flys better. So if you want to fly electric FLY BALSA.
