Update
I got the battery mounts roughly installed last night. They still need to be glassed in but that's easy compared to fitting them. The picture has a set of old mechanics in it I use to fit just in case I screw something up, it won't damage my new mechanics. When I get back from the Port Charlotte fun fly I will get on this seriously and maybe have it ready to fly next weekend. WooHoo!!!

Hey Gordie,

That thing is looking great. Have you made any provision to direct airflow over the ESC? On my TDR I've noted a sharp increase in ESC temp with its tight fitting canopy. I noticed a few guys at the Worlds had cooling fans.

Kinda
Hey Danny,
The scoop in the underside of the nose is in a direct line with the ESC and then the air vents through the gills and the top. There is a lot of outlet area so I expect enough air will go through to keep temps under control. I will also monitor the temps with the data logger just to be sure. I imagine that if we can keep a nitro motor cool, the ESC will be fine.

Progress
I have the mechanics pretty well done. I still have to make switch mounts in the fuse and make a serial connector that puts the plug in the correct place for me to reach it. I may not make this weekend but it should not be long.

Hi Gordie - it's looking good.

I've secretly been waiting for someone to do the full conversion....

I notice you went with the 470 motor on the 9.1 ratio. I'm curious to see how it works out for F3C. The combination looks like a good choice though - if my calculations are right then you should easily get 1950 max headspeed, with hovering headspeed at around 65%....

Keep us informed.

Cheers
Marc

Gordie, what happened to the SSZ-V head that's supposed to be on it?

SSZ-5
I used an old set of stock mechanics to fit into the fuselage. That is a stock FFZ-3 head. I do have the unpinned SSZ-5 head on it and ready. I was hoping to test the model this weekend but I have some additional things to do so I'm not sure I will make it but should be easy next weekend.
On my pod and boom model I am turning the head 2040 in idle up with no problems and I can get 2150 if I really need it (but I don't). Model is a rocket and pulls like a truck.

Mechanics are in. I still need upper body mount and to install the fins but it looks good to test fly this weekend.

so run us through how you change the batteries. Do you just take the cover off and the battery slides out? is that the reason why have not included the radio tray?

are you also not using the top side supports?

Questions
The top hatch comes off. I split it in the back so I don't have to remove the head. I left the front tray off as i don't use it. The flight batteries are much further forward in the nose and the plastic tray is just in the way.
The 6S 5000 packs fit very nicely in the cheeks of the fuselage but are a bit tricky to get in. You have to slide them in at an angle from the front and velcro them in place. With the batteries in and the radio batteries all the way in front, balance of the model comes out pretty close so I'm hoping I don't need to add weight anywhere. Of course I won't know that until I fly it.
I have a top support but it's in behind the main shaft (the mount is in the picture but I had not yet finished the upper adapter when I took the picture. It's now in and complete) but the front cover is not supported at all.

It flew
At 1:20 PM Saturday Mar 13, the Evo/Blackshark flew for the first time. I hovered for about three minutes in a howling wind them made about three circuits in idle up. Nothing flew off, the model was smooth, and fast. When the wind drops below 25 mph, I will start to trim as I think I am a little tail heavy.

Nice work, Gordie. I hope you can share some video in the near future.

Would you say build faster/easier or slower/hard than if you had done the same build for nitro power?

Great work, bravo!

Does Hirbo is going to release some e90 by default?

An electric Eagle is pending. One thing that has changed the way I would have predicted when we might see it openly is the fact that the AOCC is not happening this year. Thus there is no spring debut event in Asia for them to fly it. It appeared from Nuremburg that they expected a spring release in any event.

Dr_BEn : the new electric eagle. I have a nib eagle aocc, which will go as an electric bird. Is there major changes to the new electric ealge? OR is it only the lower frames?

All the best

I had the pleasure to visit Nurenberg.
At the Hirobo stand an e-conversion was on display:

It looked very good, but considering the amount of modifications it is hard to believe it will be cheap.

I agree. I can see it be close to or at four figures......

Interesting that they have that behemouth 5020 Scorpion in there.

I hope they would package the kit with electric option instead of buying them separately.
