For a newbee to EDF this is a great first jet. You made a good choice.

Doesn't need rudder.Keep it light for your first EDF. A 3S 2200 with stock motor will be enough for 5 min at conservative throttle. 2600 might get you a little longer flights but the weight goes up and so does the throttle etc etc. so the gain in flight time might be 15-30 sec but hardly worth the weight penalty.

If you set up dual aileron servos (mods posted a way back in this thread) and configure your radio for flaperons, this thing will fly at 15mph all day.

Have fun and post some video when you get it flying.
