Vario Bell 47 G3 Electric or Petro
Although out of $$$ reach what would you choose, electric or Petro.

On my dream list since yesteryear. Just thinking and the approaching biological clock.

Petro. Cheaper to run in the long haul. Personally, I just don't want to deal with the batteries.

Electric or Petrol
I watched and listened to the petrol versions fly.. to create enough power to fly, it sounded like a string trimmer running at full throttle, which wasn't a very pleasant note..
Mine was converted to electric and flies beautifully..as far as the sound, I added an electronic sound system, and between that and those big Vario blades, you where hard pressed not to feel it was a full scale flying..
Building mine for scale competition did make placing the batteries a bit of a concern, which ended up under the cabin floor..but for sport scale, they could easily be hung under the cabin, as cargo..
This is my NATS winner from 2012..

Doorman Thanks for sharing.... I took the liberty to watch several YT on both gas and electric versions. Looks like I am leaning towards an electric.

Is your setup a 10s or 12s?
