    Mini Learjet 23 twin 30mm EDF

    Its been a looong time, but here we go again! In the past, I experimented a little with super tiny EDF units, with very limited success. The planes were too small and issues with thrust tube and motor cutoff due to ESC overheating made me stop working with EDFs for a long time. But now I wanted...

    A terrible wonderful idea!

    I'm currently moving from my duty station here in Korea back the the U.S. so I'm not in a position to throw a prototype together but I figured I'd share my idea with the community and see what comes of it. So here goes... Star Wars, A-Wing. Yes I've looked at it, no it really doesn't have any...

    Does Anyone Know a Website where I Can a 3d printed Part for EDF?

    Hello, I am working on a 1/19 scale Boeing 757-222. I am Using 2 "FMS 80mm 12 Blades Ducted Fan EDF With 3270 KV2000 6S Inrunner Brushless Motor" And the engine diameter is 12cm. So Of course there's going to be a gap in between the outer shell of the engine and the edf. And I Notice Ramy RC Had...

    F-105 Thunderchief 70mm EDF

    So I made this back in April, because Chuppster suggested it. And he's done a great job of getting me to actually make some plans. I recently finished the plans for him, and decided I should share them with the rest of you. Maybe it'll hold Daniel over on the F-104 (I'll have those plans done...

    Messerschmitt P.1092 30mm micro EDF Jet

    Here is my next project: the Messerschmitt P.1092! This WWII fantasy aircraft was designed during the war as some sort of single engine Me 262. There are five different designs of this plane, I am going to make a combination of number 2 and 5. I really like the engine placement, it looks unique...

    F-104 Starfighter -70mm EDF

    Very few fighter jets have managed to create the nearly cult following of the F-104 Starfighter. This manned missile was notoriously hard to fly and control. As such, creating an RC DTFB version was incredibly hard. And truly, I don't quite yet have a 100% working version. I've built 3 variants...

    AN EDF STOL---- result of an vtol failure

    Failure Equals Success Seven years ago this project was a result of using an EDF with a VTOL concept which failed and an offshoot that gave me a new STOL project that is really different and also a first. I also submitted this project to FT and I hope it get published where I explain more in...

    EDF FLYING -- spooling-- increasing response

    Scenario: On final for a landing and you are short and near stall--punch the throttle and hope you can go around. You overshot the field on landing and you need to abort. You decided to hover and want a vernier change in thrust to hold altitude. I own a DX9 and one nice feature is the THROTTLE...

    NO SERVOS WERE HURT IN THRUST VECTORING EXPERIMENT

    Pushing the limit, I decided to test a dual 70mm's thrust vectoring nozzle plane to see how well thrust vectoring provides roll, pitch and yaw WITHOUT ANY MOVING SURFACEs on the plane. All controls are directed to the thrust vectoring nozzles. Concept: 2 nozzles up will produce pitch 1 nozzle...

    FTFC19 Messerschmitt P.1110 "Ente" designed by Zephyr1

    So, with winter break almost upon me, and with a lengthened design cut off date, I'm going to be adding an additional aircraft to this challenged. It classifies under the fantasy moniker as it was drawn up but never built in any capacity. One of the things I learned with last years challenge, is...

    MiG-21 70mm EDF

    This was my second attempt at a MiG-21, the first used the same power set up but was smaller and had a higher wing loading, and it needed improvement. This second version is bigger and has a lower wing loading and flies much better. In the spirit of Ben's F-16, I left off ailerons and used only...

    This is the print file for the custom EDF motor-mount-ducts that I designed for my 7ft B-52. It has been updated to work with 2" props, and has motor mount holes for the 1106 size motors.

    70mm EDF, 2 NTM motors and 4 servos. Any ideas?

    So I'm in a slightly awkward situation. I have an X-29 with movable canards and modified with a landing gear. I'm unable to get it off the ground and I think I'll get one flight out of it then build something else, already lost my patience with that one... I also have two 1100kv NTM 28-26 motors...

    2018-2019 Balsa Build Along - Turbinator-E by FoamyDM

    For this 2018-2019 Build along, I plan to build The Ductinator-E by Ziroli I scored from a hobbyist who cannot continue building for health reasons, and a member was helping him unload them, bought for a steal. The EDF just came in. (my other kit is a Contender 40) I have NO Balsa Build...

    IAR-99 SOIM (hawk) for 90mm EDF

    Inspiration: 90mm EDF, 80A ESC and 3000 6S battery with no plane. Looked around, the diamond looks appealing. but I thought about what else... and decided to design the Romanian Air Force IAR-9 SOIM (hawk) Plane Specs: from the Wiki Page: General characteristics Crew: 2 Length: 11.01 m (36...

    Recommendations for EDF and ESC for X29

    Is anyone flying the X-29 with an EDF? Do you have any recommendations for the EDF and ESC? I know they mention a 70mm EDF, but I have no idea what RPM, cell count, or Amp ESC. Any help would be appreciated!

    28" Foam Board EDF F86 (Plans Attached)

    Here's my take on a ~28" wingspan Foam Board EDF F86: I'm personally extremely proud of this design, especially the Mk2. To be honest, it's the fastest aircraft I've ever flown and it's probably beyond my skill level to fly. So I decided to share it with you guys, hopefully, some of you will...
