    Hi Mick,
    Have you seen this ? If the link doesn't work, copy-past it into the browser. It maybe cut in two part.
    They were lucky (and good)!

    Hi Mick,

    Thanks for the input - when I get it set-up I might ask to borrow your watt-meter or perhaps I should purchase one ....I guess it it essential if you adopt electrics?
    Regards,

    Hi Mick,

    Thanks for your reply the other day...I checked to-day and my old site was down...server maintenance or I've been kicked-out + I don't think Hacker-Model (Czech) still make the Scorpion. Any way got an inrunner (@2200 rpm/volt) and a speed controller and ordered a folding prop around 11X3.5 (instead of the 6X3) = Let's see what happens...A person at MRCC who bought another Scropion from me had ICARE sell him an inrunner + larger prop and the glider flew fast , high and flawlessly...
    Regards and thanks,

    Pierre Sarault - P.s.: the Scorpion is shown in one of my albums on this site, it weighs 2.06 lbs at this moment and is 68" in WS

    Hi Mick,
    Nice to see you at Fun-Fly - I'm a member-in-waiting (supposed to have been processed) - I have a Hacker Scorpion 68" WS motor glider and it is terribly underpowered with a Speed 480 brush and a Graupner 6"X3" fording prop. It has been balanced according to Hacker but it is too tail heavy and litterally was sort of flying on its tail last friday...lucky = no damage just nerves - Would you suggest a different brushless/prop/controller combination - I'm clearly eclectic, not electric yet!

    Once converted - this thing will obviously need to be set-up differently!

    Your comments would be appreciated
