    Viggen - In honor of our dearly departing swede

    So this is my first scratch built EDF, and I wanted something special. When I Googled viggen and looked through the pictures I found exactly what I was looking for... I hope I did it justice... While I have build several of the FT planes (as well as others) this one has been quite an...

    Why not do an intro to EDF eletronics followed by an actual EDF scratch build

    I have watched numerous build videos for foam EDF jets yet, they do not really go into detail (they explain it but just not deep enough) for actually building a jet to house an EDF motor nor do they go into the electronics of it. Either the video quality is poor, the voice is too low, or they...

    EDF Tricopter

    Earlier I was explaining how a multi-rotor works to a buddy of mine when I had a side thought. If you have a tricopter which has a servo-driven yaw axis, and uses the thrust to operate pitch and roll; you should theoretically, replace the propellers with Electric-Ducted-Fans and be able to...

    David's Viggen scaled up 129%

    I just started the build today on the Viggen! It uses the same plans as David's but is scaled up to fit a 90mm edf unit. Not sure whether I want to put retracts on it or not. It will be powered by 12 blade alloy ducted fan unit from hk and will use a 7s, not sure on capacity yet. Will be...

    Round Fuselage Ideas?

    Hey all, I was curious if anyone had any ways to get a cylindrical fuselage made out of foam board. I'm sure I could make a ton of score lines and get a pretty close shape but has anyone gotten a good shape without making a bunch of cuts? My reasoning behind this is i'd like to take a stab...

    Best 1st EDF?

    Hi all, I've been flying RC fixed wing for about 6 months now and am ready to have a crack at an EDF. I'm trying to decide between these three which I will be belly landing onto a grass strip. Any advice appreciated! eRC Rebel 70 HK Stinger 64 HK Vampire (when it's finally released)...

    Mounting EDFs

    Dear Flitetest Community, I recently finished building my EPX 900NX, its an Eco friendly flier. It is my FIRST plane so it looks kinda messy but its quite good for a first try I'd say. The plane takes off but is really tail heavy so I shall correct it soon. But for now, I have mounted the EDF's...
