ASW 22 Conversion to Electric

I finally
got around to electrifying one of my sailplanes. The hardest part was cutting the nose off of a perfectly good fuselage.

I wasn’t sure if I had enough room for the motor, but it worked and I’m happy. Electrics are new to me so I had a lot to learn. I completed the conversion and I’m ironing out all of the wrinkles in the covering.
The fuselage will be painted when the weather warms up. I’ll be doing a test flight in the near future so I’ll keep you posted. The plane hasn’t been flown in over twenty years. It should be an interesting experience.     George
