Military conversion of the ParkZone Champ...
My son loves military planes, not the civilian birds. So... I traded a buddy for his used Champ and gave it a Hollywood makeover. Insignias are just printed paper from a high quality printer. The key is to color the edges so they aren't white. Apply with 3M Spray 77 or UHU glue stick. Then a light coat of Testors 'Clear flat lacquer'or 'Dull coat'. They blend right in...
Light spackle is great for filling dents and dings...
Looks also flys like a new plane.

Hi...
I just finished a very preliminary test of the new 8mm brushless MCPX BL tail rotor motor in my home brew 30mm Ducted Fan, 3 blades...

Very encouraging for a light weight, lower output unit.

Fan is cut down GWS 30mm
Shroud is lathe turned ABS (way too much work)
Stators/ motor mount modified from Nitro 25mm for 8.5mm motors

On a 1/2 charged 200mah, 20c E.Flight pack I measured:

Thrust @ 26.5 grams
Watts. @ 8.2

Unfortunately my battery charger was at work so I am stuck for today. More later in the week...
.
Next...
Test @ full charge of the following:

30mm duct:
w/ 6 blade fan
Re-test w/ 3 blade fan

25mm duct:
w/ 6 blade fan
w/ 3 blade fan

(Nitro and BIM, you guys are awesome!!
Freddie, you are an inspiration to many builders & flyers! )
