Wow and an xcell is as smooth as they come. And flying electric must be really sick. Good job on the tail BTW. Jimmi

X-Cell Convert

Loved your pix and Info. What Scale size is yours?

We are converting an X-Cell 60 & 90 Scale.

Would LOVE it if you could give us a break down on ALL the Electronics you used?????

Would be a HUGE help, we are pretty new at this and confused at this point.

PLEASE help if you can on what all you installed for Electronics, (Esp the motor), and any tips you learned along the way.

Ours will be weighing more, putting fuselages on them too.

Thanks in advance

nice work!

But damn my xcell 50 was porky for a 50 as everything on it was over built typical of MA. I bet ....as I have thought about E converting my xcell 50 or 60... There has to be lots of weight savings hidden in that CF frame.

Great job none the less! excellent job on the swept tail! belt or I bet tube drive??

Also that tailfin isnt doing ya any favors looks wise. Ya dont need it for protection any more
