Well I am one of those who hates Electric powered RC planes. Why?
1. They don't sound right
2. They are dangerous as even when idling they will cut you to ribbons
3. They are dangerous as you cant really hear them if they are about to hit you, thus taking away sound as an early warning system.
4. No oil (who in their right minds would want a plane without a bit of oil to clean up.
5. The batteries used in Electric flight are quite likely to burst into flame, either when charging and burn down your house (or even worse..THE SHED) or at the field when they only destroy your model.
I could go on but you get my drift.
They should be banned immediately as unnecessary dangerous objects.
IC Rules right??
Well we will see who reads the forum now.
One crowded hour of glorious life Is worth an age without a name. (Thomas Mordaunt 1730-1809)
adder, adder, adder, what shall we do with the person who loves Skyhooks and the the hit song 'livin' in the 70's?'
As for sounding right, no noise issues to us kicked of our precious patch of well looked after grass!
They can double as a vegetable slicer just as an EDF can double as a leaf blower!
And your wife can use a small electrickery model to blow dry her hair.
What does that matter when a large number of modelers are stone deaf from running IC for years without a muffler.
Environmentally friendly with no toxic grease cutting formulas to worry about.
Keeps fire fighters employed and gives the media something to sensationalise if they can spell the word drone . Model airplane or multi rotor has too many syllables for the average journo these days.
Smoke belching, racket making, frustration making IC V's quite, clean sophisticated electrickery modelling.
Although, in parting, an IC is a good way of getting rid of the mossies.
Regards and respect
