    Plane XF A-4 Skyhawk EDF b0.7

    SPECS Span: 30 in. Length: 43 in. Empty Weight: 27 oz. Power: 70mm EDF Battery: 3000mAh - 5000mAh 4-cell Lipo Flying Weight: ~45 oz. I highly recommend a 12-blade EDF, but this jet will fly on any similarly-powered fan regardless of the...

    Introduction and Custom Jet Engine Project

    Hello all! My name is Andrew, and I am a university student majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I've been watching FliteTest for quite a while now and have been inspired by their designs and their attitude toward the hobby. I think it's safe to assume that I am not the only one here who has...

    HUD

    Hi guys! Today i primary wanted to build on at my Dc3 but then i got a great idea! I had a transparent peace of a packaging and there was a scrape in it. But when i went to the rubbish bin i saw that the scrape in the packaging cached the light from my lamp and reflected it. This brought me to...

    F-86 Sabre - 50mm EDF

    The F-86 Sabre is among my favorite jets. How can you not love the greatest MiG killer in history? I decided to make the it scale to my F-15. It requires ONLY 2 sheets of foamboard! This means that if you lawndart it (I did the first one!) it's no trouble to rebuild! I used a FMS 12 blade 50mm...

    This might be crazy enough to fly!

    Any ideas on this concept? So you know how jets usually have the engine in the back and some canards in the front, well what if you replaced the canards with the engines (I swear I'm not drunk!). Essentially the concept was for a twin edf aircraft to have its motors rotate on an axis for...

    Been a while - Twin EDF Jet

    So it started out with a set of 64mm (3S) EDF motors and some 40AMP ESCs. It ended with what appears to be a decent setup. Fingers crossed. The initial glide tests showed me I could move the battery closer to the main fuse and shorten the nose section. The 2nd round tests with flight controls...

    Scratch built 70mm EDF fighter jet

    I was inspired to attempt to create my own designs after finishing up an FT Viggen. This is a model designed by me although I must admit it turned out very similar to an F-16 style aircraft. I model the aircraft using blender in 3D and then utilize UV mapping and some plugins to "unfold" the 3D...

    Jay Jay the jet plane for under $100

    Im sure some of you remember the poorly photo shopped slow flying plane, Im challenging elite test to built this plane with the small wings and twin engine and see if it actually takes flite!

    F-5 Tiger II (Freewing F-5 mods and set up)

    As I don't see an EDF forum I'll post some of my impressions of Freewing F-5 Tiger here under "Warbirds". Some background is in order. I received this model as a hand me down after the original owner crashed it on the maiden flight performing a classic rendition of the “Saber Dance”. While the...

    Speedfest 2017 Oklahoma State

    Hey Guys! I am part of speedfest at Oklahoma State University this year and I need your help! For those of you that don't know what this is (probably all of you), it is a competition that OSU puts on every year for the senior design students to compete in. This year we made Delta wing aircraft...

    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...

    Some of our scratch collection

    These are inspired by my childhood love of flight and passing it on to my son. Here are some of our designs. Hope you like them.

    Airbus A350 1/60 Laser Cut Scratch Build

    Hello everyone! As the title may suggest, I'm currently in progress of building 1/60 scale Airbus A350-900XWB. This is my first commercial Airliner Scratch build, so i can almost guarantee there will be a very high fail/success ratio. I'm a part of the Newmarket, Ontario, Canada Makerspace...

    Jet FT Plane

    Hello everyone, I am going to make a jet engine to put in to a plane and I wanted to use a FT plane, but I'm not sure which plane to use. I would like it to be able to go as fast as possible. The jet engine will have a 128mm/5" internal diameter and a 135mm/5.3" external diameter. What would be...

    100 mph jwVampire

    Hey everyone, I'm in the process of going to the 'next level' with my foam board planes and have decided to try and smash the 100mph barrier. Nerdnic has been quite an inspiration in doing this, especially as he has done it with some of his own designs. Here is my set up - NTM propdrive...

    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...
