I've been flying R/C on and mainly off for the last 25 years. I prefer sailplanes and electric assist means I can now spend a good hour flying on one charge. Much more relaxed when you don't have to worry about charging in a field etc. 8) I too have one of the mid size electric heli's. Great fun in ...

Hi Nikki, What sort of costs have you found for an AC motor and controller? The best I can find is Metric Mind and Evisol. Thier AC motor and inverters are Ã‚Â£6K plus batteries.

Hi Martin, The Netgain Impulse 9 motor is very nice, but I believe it's at its most efficient at high voltages 144V, with a max voltage of 170. For your 60mph requirement, you might need 144V if the vehicle is fully loaded and when it's not you could have a very quick van! We do a 144V 10Ah (159.4V ...
