Guillows RC Conversion Motor & Electronics

Guillows RC Conversion Motor & Electronics

In this video I’ll discuss my recommendations for Guillows RC conversion motor and electronics. I’ll offer detailed information on what works to power and control the six Guillow model airplane kits that I have converted to RC flight.

There is a wide range of Guillows motor and electronics than can be used in these conversions. For the smaller models, weight is critical. For the larger models, you can use regular RC components.

Guillows model airplane kits made wonderful RC models if you follow a few careful steps, discussed in the video. I will also highlight my RC conversion of the Guillows Aeronca, Zero and F6F Hellcat.
