I think the swivel duct is going to be to much for most parkflyer builds and most fans to do ... but try it as you never know when someone is going to hit that magic number and pull it off

I changed my above post with the picture of nadines idea of the reverse tri copter and I really think this could be made to look and fly well .

Also decided to go on the Knife Edge swap pages and get a few VTOLs. Happen to find a nice F35. I need to practice :P

Maybe balsa skin with lite ply wood outer rings to keep it round ,,, don't know as I have never worked on a swivel duct before ... or any duct for that matter ?

The swivel part is also a matter of much weight

May try that after I can build a frame. I want to work on flying my RF7 and work on VTOLs and get more experience with building EDFs. I have a little 17.25 inch F15 I'm building.

Btw, do commercial three pin female adapters fit the prongs in RC use? because I'm really lacking in them?

Yes, standard JR/Futaba 3 socket connectors work fine. By that, I mean the standard connector found on most every servo or ESC.

I mean is this a kind of thing that I can run into radio shack and get? because I don't have a hobby store near me anymore, and ordering off the internet is a no, I'm still recovering from the last order *shiver.
