    Help! Single EDF plane?

    Hiya guys. I recently got a 3d printer (Bambu A1 mini which is the very best printer you can buy) and put it to good use by printing an adapter to convert my brushless motor to an edf. Does anyone have plans for a Single edf foamboard plane? Anything would be greatly appreciated. I believe it's...

    Brainstorming for a crazy first build, need info and ideas

    I'll preface this by saying I know very little about aircraft design or RC design. After I learn to fly EDF jets, I want to start a ridiculous custom-designed twin-EDF build. It'll probably be a few years down the road, so I'll have plenty of time to save money for it, but I still want to avoid...

    New to the hobby, looking to get into building!

    Hi! I'm Brie. I'm new to the hobby, I built a foam FliteTest kit years ago when I was younger and haven't been involved since then. I plan to get an EDF trainer to learn to fly while I learn about plane design and work on a custom EDF jet.

    OG A-10 with twin 70mm EDF (3d Print Mount)

    Another weekend, another build. This time we wanted an A-10, but not a prop-driven version. There are a few other EDF mounting solutions that I found, but I didn't like the scale and some were overly complex. I designed my own mount on Fusion 360, printed it on my Bambu P1S out of PETG, and...

    Vippen 70mm EDF

    After the last FT Viggen had a spectacular demise, I decided I wanted a different EDF sport jet similar to the FMS Viper. I like the Viggen’s simplicity, so I used it as the base model sized up 125%. I combined many of the Viggen’s parts and modeled the control surfaces after the FMS Viper...

    3D Printed MiG-21 70mm/64mm research

    Just gonna try and see if I can take telnar1236's MiG-21 project and get it up and running, I've been looking forever for a starting point because my scaling has been horrible. I think I could get their plane to fly by using the cooling ducts that the real plane uses and turning them into air...

    Plane 50mm EDF P.15 Lippisch concept plane 2

    I was browsing the list of Freewing planes on Motionrc and the lippisch caught my eye. I decided to make my first design based on this plane and it flies great. It uses a 50 mm edf but i feel that the plane could be easily scaled down a bit and still fit the fan. It could also be scaled up...

    Help! Can You Use EDFs for the Master Series A-10?

    Hi, I am a relatively new flyer and builder, and I'm looking to build the A-10 Master Series (already built a Master Series Corsair). I bought the A-10 kit thinking that it used EDFs, but just found out it is powered with props. Is it possible for me to use EDFs for it? If so, what size/kind...

    Plane Heinkel He-162 70mm EDF (BETA!!!!) 0.5

    This is a Heinkel He-162 I was working on a little while ago, but never managed to finish. The plans are only about 70% complete, so be advised you might need to make up some of your own parts. Build Skill Level (at the moment): 9/10, as it requires you to make up some parts, and also build...
