This page is dedicated to my ModelTech Magic, an ARF designed for gas power which I converted to electric after being inspired by other conversions described on the ezone.
My heaviest electric plane yet
The Modeltech Magic is a relatively light plane by model airplane standards, but at around 68 ounces it is probably the heaviest electric plane I own.  Even so, the large wing area makes for a light wing loading, and the plane is capable of most aerobatic moves and limited vertical.
The plane comes completely covered, and there is very little left to do to get the plane in the air.  This shot shows the plane before I added the decals.  The decals really spruce it up.
This is a detail shot inside the fuse, just under the wing.  For my electric conversion I did very little to the plane.  The servo tray originally came with a slot to hold the receiver (located where the receiver sits in the picture) but I cut it off to give me flexibility in moving the battery for balance.  I used Hitec HS85MG's for all the servos, and replaced the included pull-pull rods with some thinner ones.  The original rods puzzled me, as the plane was setup for pull-pull and thick rods were not necessary.  The thinner rods are much lighter and slide through the sleeves much easier.
Here you can see the details of my motor setup.  I used the motor mounts that came with the plane which were designed to hold a gas motor.  Two CF rods help stablize the motor between the mounts, and they are inserted through holes in the firewall which were drilled to establish the proper thrust angle.  A standard metal hose clamp holds the motor firmly.  The motor is an Endoplasma geared 6:1 with a MEC superbox, run on 8 cells and turning a 16x10 APC prop.  Static current draw approaches 40amps, for a nominal power output of 320 watts
I tested the plane with an 8 cell pack of Sanyo CP1700SCRs.  The plane balanced with the pack pushed right up against the firewall.  If you look at the previous picture you can see that I mounted the motor pretty far out front to help achieve the balance.  HINT: when arranging your equipment in the fuse, try to get the plane balanced at the front former without the wing.  This is a good starting point for test flights.  The front former is indicated in this picture by two red dashes on either side of the plane. 
To help keep all the electic bits cool, I installed a few air scoops on the plane.  This picture highlights the two scoops on either side of the nose.  I used the old trick of cutting up a plastic spoon for the scoops, and I painted them yellow.
Here you can see the two exhaust scoops installed on the bottom of the plane.  Air flowing over these scoops will actually draw air through the fuse.  For reference, the aft most scoop is directly under the servos.  I'm a bit undecided at this point if I should try to camoflage the scoops by painting them red.
Just for kicks I strapped my wireless video system from Black Widow A/V onto the magic and did some bankin' and yankin'  :-)
