I flew mine (ca 2008) with an old Kyosho 75 mm fan, an HET2W on 3S. Perhaps mine was an early version but the ducting fit the Ky fan perfectly. Needed a bungee to launch, but was a decent flyer. After an "off field" landing that damaged the wing, I made a larger wing that increased the area by 12% and reduced the weight. This change was enough so I could then hand launch the L39.

I'm not sure what ended her flying career but just recently I was cleaning out the work shop and came across the FG ducting and the balsa wing. Tossed them.
