R/C modellers:

A while back someone mentioned 2" (1/6?) scale electric R/C gathering.
I am very interested in what people are using for electric motors,
# of cells, # of channels, etc. for WWI electric R/C. This would
be great for me as I have no interest in doing GAS powered R/C but
would love to go back to R/C modeling wspecially in 1/6 WWI!

I had one of those semi-indestructable R/C planes a couple of years
ago and enjoyed it except for 2 points. 1) The gas (sic) engines were
too damned hard to start and 2) starting them was dangerous. My interest
in Gas powered R/C stopped suddenly when a prop did the same into the
muscle of my left thumb leaving me with 16 stitches for my troubles. I
quickly liquidated all of my R/C equipment and continued on with my
other hobbies.

I would be interested in starting agin in R/C if the electrics are
truely a viable way to go now. Is the power/duration of the flights

Thanks for the info in advance,
