Video: Electric 11-foot C-130

Evangelos Paschaloudis of Thessaloniki Greece spent nine years (over 1000 hours!) building this RC model of a U.S. Coast Guard C-130 from Palmer plans. The 11-foot-span electric model uses four 5S 5000mAh batteries for 18-minute flights!  Thanks to YouTube’s Sallas4U for taking this great video of the model flying from the Polykastro airfield and sharing it with us.

  1. Beautiful aircraft. Well done!!!

  2. Beautiful and what does it take to be the first owner?

  3. Modeler are a rare breed but once in a while one rises above the rest. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  4. WOW, the skills, the patience, the dedication the vision to see this project thru to completion, is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!! Would truly love to see it fly.

  5. Beautiful! A work of love. I was happy to see that you switched to electric power. Scale props would be a big kicker.

  6. Beautiful airplane, but the video left a lot to be desired. It switched from scene to scene so quickly, especially in the opening still shots, that it was almost impossible to follow. Slow down with the editing. This seems to be a problem with so many videos made these days – not just this one.

  7. Si eu quiser comprar um kit desse, Hercules C-130, como faço para importar pro Brasil e pagar. Obrigado

  8. Congratulations, beautiful execution and good piloting skills!

  9. I would like to know if the plans were home drawn from smaller scale or purchased?

  10. WOW! Beautiful! Uncle Sam flew me to Roosevelt Rhodes, Puerto Rico, from Port Canaveral, Fla. in 1968, aboard a C-130. It’s a nice airplane.

  11. Nice plane, epic build and an cracking shop, I only wish I had a shop like this to build on this scale. Well done

  12. Excellent scale model by excellent pilot. Congratulations Evangelos!

  13. Outstanding accomplishment, Beautiful model.

  14. Well done ! My brother and I are researching to build one each of our own. What was the source for your retracts ? I hope they might still be available.

  15. Source for your retracts, please !
