For this plane, I used the electronics that came in a Hobby King Park Jet MKII, which cost $50.00. But, if you shop around, you should be able to get everything you need to scratchbuild a plane for less than $40.00. It depends on how powerful you need your motor and battery to be. Grason hobby sells a "Disposable Foamy combo" for $20.00, which includes a 1450Kv motor and an 18 amp ESC that works very well for a number of applications. For batteries I have found Hobby King to have some of the best prices around, and for servos and other building materials I use HeadsupRc. I use Dollar Tree foamboard for all of my scratchbuilds.


yeah but remember the shipping. you have to at least asume 100$ for everything not including the foam. (btw its good hearing from you reaper

Hobby King has the most expensive shipping, but usually under $20. Grayson is usually under $12, but HeadsupRc is only $2 for parts, and not much more for the whole plane. I don't know if Colin222 is from the States, but if he is, shipping is really not that bad. And, if he has a local Dollar Tree nearby, there is no shipping. Thanks, Jeriah. It's good to have the time to get back on the forum. Hope all is good with you and yours.
A good landing is one you can walk away from... a great landing is one you can re-use the plane. My youtube channel:http://youtube.com/user/0269Reaper

I am also thinking to build a plane like this, I have a 2250kv motor and a 2s battery pack. I don't know about the ESC. can you suggest me one in $10.

I would suggest you go to Hobbyking.com. You probably need an 18 to 20 amp ESC, but a bigger ESC is always better if you can handle the extra weight on your plane. I have had good luck with the "Red Brick" ESC. They are simple and cheap and have worked fine for me. If you live in the U.S., order from their USA warehouse. The shipping is cheaper and takes a lot less time to get your order. Lots of luck.

they said that this has some basic programming features .. are that basic programming features should be enough for my plane or I have to re-program it and I have no idea what manual to use.

That ESC should work fine for you. It comes ready to use. The only programming is weather you want the prop brake on or off. It comes with instructions. I have used this ESC with a couple planes and it works great.
