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.
Thax for your tips...If i use stock servo setup will it still fly slow enough for me to get used to it first...i am new and have no experience with flaperons or any mixing...i have flysky 9x so i do have that option once i figure it all out...what about throws on elevatore and ailerons? should i use expo at 50% or is this jet not so touchy... thanks
