DS-75/Neu/XPS 4500watt Scratch Build by Team Wesley !Video Added Post #112!

The Dream:
Every year we build "The One". The One is the aircraft that we've been dreaming of since the previous year's Arizona Electric Fest. What's going to turn heads? What is something that no one else will have there? And what can we enjoy even on our little runway up here in Colorado?
Last year, The One was the Spatha Jet. And although a 70mm to many of you isn't a big deal, it was to us. Our early attempt at an EDF was a great success. Read what Mickydee had to say after seeing it at '09 AEF:

"...your Spatha was the most impressive 70 MM EDF that I have ever seen fly. Speed, vertical, duration, all in one package."

From that moment on, we decided that EDFs are our new thing, and we can stay up with the best of them. This time, however, we are not competing with the HETs, GWSs and Sapacs, we are competing with the big boys: BVM, CARF, TamJets etc...

Here are the Must Haves of our design:

1. Greater than 1:1 Thrust to Weight
2. Greater than 160mph in level
3. Must have a wing loading under 30oz sqft
