    AP Goshawk 50mm EDF Jet

    I bought a HK 50mm Alloy EDF 4800kv (3s Version) and found the T-45 Goshawk in search for a suitable aircraft, which is easy to convert into foamboard. It will be my very first EDF plane and here is my first design:



    The wingspan is 610mm. The fuselage is not yet glued, first only stapled. The build plan is in raw format and the parts fit quite well. There is still a lot to do before it can take off to the maiden flight, so back to work!

    I have a pair of 50 mm edf motors, a 55 mm unit and a 70 mm unit with no homes at the moment.

    Got video?
    Truths in life:
    1) Everything that happens happens for a reason. Luck does not exist.
    2) In this existence we are part of the problem or part of the solution. The choice is ours.
    3) We aren't defined by our circumstances but by our reactions to them. Crisis reveals character.

    One of the 50 mm edf´s would have found a home, if the maiden flight is successful. For the others, let's see what the future brings.

    I will do a video of the maiden flight. Until then there is still a lot to do.
