"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. See the construction.
"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
