"I have made some mods to convert to electric three
channel. I put in an Eflite 450 for power. It flies GREAT!"
- Bill Williams
3 channel electric r/c conversion
Just needs the prop, rubber, and some detailing. Click here for the construction photos.
Built up wing with ailerons.
"I installed a gas tank, micro servos for 4 channel operation,
receiver, and battery pack. There is a switch on the fuselage beneath
the pilot's window. The engine is a NORVEL .061 with throttle for
radio control. Covering is Coverlite. Your Monocoupe 90A is very
spacious inside and has plenty of room for the tank, battery pack,
receiver, and servos."- Don Sebolt, June 2005.
Balsa Model Airplane Kit, Balsa flies better.
