20mm brushless EDF jet

#1
Hey folks,

Started this project quite a while ago, finally got around to finishing up, now just waiting for some nice calm air.

15" wingspan, all balsa, two 1.5 gram linear servos, banggood RX, 20mm brushless EDF courtesy of Nitrocharged, Sunrise ESC. Will run 2s first just to make sure she actually works, then may tempt fate by trying 3s (or maybe not...we'll see).

Didnt record the beginning of the build, and my computer threw a fit trying to deal with the rest of the footage, so this isnt much of a build video, but you get the idea. I'll update when I get her in the air, hopefully this weekend.

Nick


Check out Nitrocharged if you like micro EDF!

Thank you! I was holding my breath hoping this thing would fly better than the last jet I built, very relieved it did. Will hopefully get a properly trimmed flight in this weekend.

hey micro, I just watched all your YT video's and what you're doing is le awesome!

no doubt you have a bazillion projects on the go...but your EF jet and a post about a mini SR-71 made my brain automatically combine the two:

are there EDF smaller than 20mm? if not, the SR-71 would have to be scaled up a bit for the jets to fit and look right. ;)

Nice Black Bird (white bird? lol) There are a couple people making their own custom 20mm and smaller EDFs, but unfortunately, nothing commercially available as far as I know. Theres one guy on RCGroups whos working on some 10mm units, that would open up a lot of micro doors!
