Help! Which plane should be the best choice??

#1
Hi I'm Alex. New in this forum

A few time ago a friend gave me a turning park 450, 890 kv with an 25A esc so my question is which would be the best choice of plane that I can build to fit that stuff? And specially what size. I'm super new on electric planes I used to fly Gas engine RC Planes when I was in high school but now after college and everything I want to return but with electric planes. TIA

Great suggestion. I used to fly a really slow Cessna, do you think that warbird would be suitable for me? Also I'm trying to conect an old futaba 6EXA to al the electric system do you think that is gonna work?

If you could maintain inverted flight, then yes.

It somewhat depends on how long it has been. If it’s been a year or more, I’d recommend you start with the trainer type planes, the bushwhacker, scorch or cub. After you get your chops back, turn up the rates & move the CG aft and wring them out.

Greetings and Welcome! I'm pretty new myself, and any of the Flite Test "B" power pack planes would be good. My recommendation is the Simple Scout, it's easy to build, but it has pretty big control surfaces, so on low rates it's really gentle to fly, but it rolls and loops really well on high rates...great plane to grow with...IMO...

I second that. The Simple Scout is an awesome plane!

The Scout will fly pretty fast with that motor, the Sportster may need more. The Scout is speced for a B Pack motor and with a C pack, it's a rocket and rolls really fast on high rates. The Sportster needs a lot more motor. The Simple Scout is one of FT most popular planes and for good reasons. What is cool about the Scout is it will fly really well, both slow and fast.

I fly mine FPV all the time, and the rolls are sooooooo fun! I have the C motor on mine as well...
