    FT Viggen 5,180' above sea level

    I finally got around to building the FT Viggen I purchased months ago. Here is a video my friend Jeff took of a flight at the Arvada Associated Modelers field outside of Denver, CO. Over a mile high!

    Exploring Ducted Props with 3D Printing

    A sleep deprived idea came into my head when thinking about an active cooling system for a friend's Mikado, the result was scary, and I may have stumbled into the gateway for EDFs. These 1806 motors used to have an overheat problem when using 6045 bullnoses, but the 5040 3 bladed props kept it...

    Freewing 90mm EDF fan (rotor hub ID)

    Help. As my project jet is a Freewing 90mm F-16 sold with a 6 cell outrunner EDF system I'm posting here under "Warbirds". This is because I can't find a dedicated forum for EDFs here on the FT form site. What I’m looking for some information on the Freewing/Changesun 90mm 12 bladed...

    Glassed Viggen

    Hi everyone, I good friend of mine gave me a FT Viggen for Christmas. I've been too busy to get to it, but if it is anything like the FT-18, it will need support in the wings to make it durable. So, I'm going to start my build and document my process here. Please follow along.

    3D Printed EDF Jet Engine

    Hello, Me and my friend designed a EDF jet engine, wich we printed out using a 3D printer. After assembly and testing we came to a conclusion that it is working pretty well. So we decided to build a bigger one. Currently the jet turbine measures 12cm (4.73in) and it is 22cm (8.66in) long. The...

    I'd love to see and EDF F-117 build!

    I've seen several pusher prop designs and even one with a nose prop. But the only EDF build I've seen designs for is a solid wood model and I'd prefer a foam-board build. I did find one thread here, but it was a scratch-build without plans and I don't have the skills to design my own.

    EDF QUESTION!

    Does anyone have an idea of an edf unit, esc, and battery that would be powerful enough to pull me on a skateboard (the all up weight with me on the skate board is about 115 pounds)? I don't know if I should use a 70mm or a 90mm. Maybe even two 70mm ones. My idea is to make an edf jet powered...

    F-14D Tomcat Swing Wing

    I would love to see a swing wing EDF Version of the F-14D Tomcat. I believe that it would look like a beautiful plane, and be very high performance. I know you guys can do it, just like you did the Viggen.;)

    E-Flite UMX Habu S DF180

    I recently started buying instead of just the scratch building, I have got the E-Flite T-28 Trojan and i can handle that pretty well, i mainly build small parkfliers but i have never seen and EDF Jet the size of the UMX Habu. I think it is fine as it does have the Sensor Assisted Flight...

    Repurposed Habu 180 S Electronics

    I recently got the new UMX Habu 180 S with S.A.F.E. It was a little beyond my flying skills, and I crashed it so much that hot glue repairs made it heavy and less enjoyable to fly. Since a replacement airframe is upwards of $100, I thought, "can I make an airframe out of DTFB?" So I tried! My...

    Foamboard Grumman X-29 w/ 50mm EDF

    Hi everyone! I'd like to show you all my new X29 design: So I finally got to take her out for a maiden flight, and I didn't crash and burn! She was tail heavy on the first launch, but I got it right on the second launch. Unfortunately, she was really underpowered with a 50mm Dr. Mad Thrust...

    Best Sounding EDF - Deer whistles?

    Alright so everyone knows that most EDF Jet fliers search really hard for a jet with a good "air ripping" sound. Their are a lot of different solutions, leaving bay doors open and landing gear down, making the motor very quiet, balancing properly, installing a thrust tube, increasing blade...

    FT Viggen EDF with 3s battery???

    I'm looking to build my Viggen w an EDF. It seems that all the motors for EDF need a 4S battery. I have a good amount of 3S batteries and was hoping there was an EDF build that can utilize my 3S batteries and still give me the performance the Viggen deserves. Anyone have any...

    Best Quality Manufacturers

    With all the plane available today and so many manufacturers it's hard to tell a good deal from a cheap plane. Can you more experienced pilots provide insight into which brands are high quality and which brands to stay away from? Currently I mostly have E-flight, Parkzone and I just got a...
