    Habu 2 6s power system calculation

    First I would like to say this is my first post. I have made the formatting as organized as I can, hope you enjoy. I recently bought all these components with the intention of building and flying the Habu 2. http://bit.ly/1l6JVrE Bare Airframe: Habu 2 http://bit.ly/1Nn7S3I Delta-V 15 69mm...

    A3 EDF V-TOL

    the cowls are for 90mm fans and each it rotated by a micro servo in the "wrist". the tail is also set up to put a servo for rudder movement. the fuselage can hold a 6S lipo along with a kk2 and a gimbal in the nose. the hole for the dome is 3in. if anyone has any better ideas please comment and...

    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...

    EDF X-wing possible?

    This build idea is beyond my skills... for now, just learning here. I've been toying with the idea of a scale EDF X-wing for a while but know it'd be an extremely difficult build just for the air frame and balance, knowing next to nothing about EDFs pushes it too far into the red to try, what...

    Blade Inductrix

    So there I was in the not-so-local hobby shop on the way back from dropping my wife off at the airport (surefire formula for an RC purchase:cool:) and there on the counter were stacks of these little guys just received a few days ago. Having purchased a couple of Pico QX's for my son and my...

    One Piece EDF for FT Viggen

    I am hoping someone can recommend a good all-in-one EDF unit for the Ft Viggen, ideally from HobbyKing, or somewhere in Canada. I originally bought this setup, but had my Fan explode on spool up...: Turnigy L2855-2800 EDF Outrunner (630w) 10 Blade High-Performance 70mm EDF Ducted Fan Unit...

    Hot Wire Foam cut Viggen

    This was my first time using a hot wire, I used the link for the formers from Flite Test, printed and traced the onto sheets of balsa wood and within an hour had the pieces cut and glued together, before I knew it I had the fuselage complete and it was ready for sanding, after a lot of sanding I...

    Micro Su-35/37 with thrust vectoring nozzles - a challenge for Flite Test

    Hi Flite Test!!! I thought I will give you a hard project. You have already made F-22 from America, JA-37 from Europe, maybe it's time for something Russian? :) Your goal is to make an EDF Su-35/Su-37 (or a mix of them, like Su-35 with canards :D) from foam/depron with advanced 3D fuselage and...

    Videos on Gasers/EDF/Balsa/etc. please!

    Hello everyone/Flite Test, I've noticed that the free video content Flite Test offers is mainly [if not entirely] videos related to foamies or RC planes in general. Although I haven't ventured into flying Gasers and EDF jets [and other means of propulsion and building materials], in the future...

    What would you like to see as the new FT scratch build aircraft.

    Flite Test has designed so many great scratch built aircraft. I would love to see a new EDF jet. Maybe the FT-Sabre (F-86). What do you want to see as the next FT scratch build?

    64mm EDF Scratch Build

    A good FT friend is sending me a 64mm EDF motor. Wants to see what I'll come up with. Hmm time to start designing very simple and light air frames. For some reason some of the classic designs speak to me. To be honest the de Havilland Vampire looks wonderful. Or maybe the Grumman A-6...

    A Different Take on Davids Rocket Plane

    I had the bright idea one winters day last week to put Estes rockets onto a plane. Having only found one video on the YouTube of a guy who just taped one on a trainer. Also having seen David's rocket plane, I thought I'd take it farther and build an EDF Jet that had two D sized rockets onboard...

    X-Wing feasibility study

    I've seen a few RC x-wings on the web (there's even a trainer in this forum). But they usually have a canard up front or a pusher/slot prop. All creative and viable ideas, but I've been thinking about something a bit more scale looking with EDFs. However, many challenges to overcome. My first...
