This is gen 3 fuse. It is thinner and has nothes in hinge area. My only complaint since I use balsa elerons. I added .210 carbon tubes in this area and added .25 balsa strips for my hinges as well as 2" wide fiber glass strip across the the entire rear to help prevent flex. The fg is adhered with Z-poxy and microbaloons. Use this mod on all my Strykers and never a failure in this area.

That is the Aero-Naut Blade 2

If you've got an extra $800 to spend, that would be one way to spend it.

Looks like a modified Twin Jet, I think this could be done to the Stryker too. Any takers?

Nice vid, thanks.

That thing is about the same size as the Stryker, it could be done. I want to see a turbine powered Stryker!!

yeah, looks like a twinjet fuse.... it doesn't look much faster than my stryker turning a prop, though. then again, it's hard to tell if he's doing much flying at full throttle. fuel, turbine, foam? i don't like my chances!

Wow. Nothing compares to the sound of a jet engine, large or small.

I with lowdive, my stryker looks faster unless he was holding back. I think the camera man should lay off the Starbucks before shooting.

Yeah, my propped Stryker looks faster too, but it does seem like the pilot was holding back some. The turbine never really seemed to realy wind up to me. Who knows, I just thought it was cool and love the sound of turbines. It's cool to know too that you can use a turbine is something like that though without all the electronic starting and monitoring stuff, plus the propane bottle in there weighing it down.

He did seem to be running it kind of easy and only got a little over 4 1/2 minutes of run time. It probably doesn't have a very large fuel tank. If he ran at full throttle, he would probably only get a 2 or 3 minute flight but there's nothing like the sound of a turbine.

Wow CTD that is fast, wish they weren't so darn expensive. I would make one if I knew how. Anyone know if there is published plans for a micro turbine on the web?

Well it's time for a new Stryker, the old one was looking pretty sad, even though it still flies. The new Stryker has a 16/25/4, and a 3100 4cell pq pack, 7x7 speed prop with lots of thrusts for this little piggy, current prop is to keep my batteries protected till I install an onboard monitoring system. It won't be a full out speed demon but it will be plenty fast and a great test bed for some new power plants I will be trying out, plus I wanted a version that could fly in heavy winds. The paint job turned out ok, but I think I will stay away from the copper color next time, once I accented it with black flames I started to like it again. Mods on this version are my own custom motor mount, bidirectional tape along the leading edges and motor area, vented canopy, vents on the sides and a complete covering of thinned goop. This stuff seems to take paint quite well but it's really nasty to breathe. Take precautions if you use it, it's also heavy as well, best to thin it down quite a bit if you don't need to bullet proof it.
