Left -- original Phase3 70mm 5blade fan with 4000Kv black motor

Middle -- typical 64mm 5blade with 4300kv motor

Right -- Detrum 70mm 5blade with 3000Kv motor


The Detrum has a rotor with larger, higher pitched blades thus the 3000Kv motor vs. the Phase3 unit with a very small fan.

The P3 unit could be run on 3s or 4s

Wanted to say a big THANK YOU to kwiktsi of RCGroups for the awesome Drop Box.

I mounted it to the belly of the old faithful SuperCub. We loaded it with one of my son's nice paratroopers with a satin-type material parachute.

He had great fun running around the field trying to catch it before it touched the ground.

He succeeded on his 4th attempt.

Next up will be to mount a little key fob camera to the paratrooper and capture some vids!

Thanks again kwiktsi!!

Here's a few 6mm depron foamies I've built this winter, either from kits or just from plans. The F-35 is a great flyer, the XB-70 rolls faster than any other plane I have.

What a great old kit!! Too bad the fine folks at Fan-Tastic are no longer in business. Set this one up with a 1300kv "BlueWonder" outrunner, 10x6 prop and 500-600mah 3s lipos. AUW is a tick over 12oz and she scoots around nicely. Here's some maiden pics my father took....
