Thanks for the info! I placed an order for two right away.

Please update on the specs you gather, I am currently working on a Habu 2 from the ground up so I will have my 50's on the back-burner. There should be some info up in the new fan by the time I complete the Habu. Any one have any info on a good "chrome/alumi" paint?

I looked at those 10 blade 50mm fans at r/c castle. I wonder if they will make my f-86 fly? It was a good flyer with the HK 3s alloy fan/motor, but suddenly became so aneimic that it will j-u-s-t not quite even stay aloft! I hate to get a whole new edf just to get this guy to fly! Anyone have ideas for a replacement motor that will fit this unit? I am 3s at present with these birds.-----Metalguy

are you sure it's the motor (tried it with a different lipo, AND a different ESC)?

checked throttle range? that's the first thing I would reset...

very unlikely that the 3s unit motor would just burn (and then you should smell something ;-)

might be a problem with the connectors not being soldered for good contact (although that usually leads to a stuttering motor because it affects only one of the three phases, not all at the same time)

All my 3s SkyAngels have suffered this. Lipos wearing out, ducting leaking, etc. You hit full throttle and it's barely above stall speed, right?

I'm about to buy a few of those 10-blade 50mm units to try them out. I know they are more like 54mm in size so all jets need a bit of foam love.

EDIT: I'm also done with HobbyKing so ordering from rc-castle is a bonus.

$9.80 for 2 50mm units plus a 70mm CS12 fan. Pretty much sales tax for me. Whole lot cheaper than Nitroplanes + Banana Hobby shipping.

In other news I contacted RC Lander directly and they were happy to sell me their 3mm adaptors for their 50mm 5-blade alloy fan for $2 each. Their adapters are lighter and deeper than the standard 3mm M5 prop adapters.
do u have any specs on those adapters? could they be used w/ the 6blade drilled out? or maybe used w/ there 5blade if u can get that also, if i remember correct it is not sold rotor only at h/k.

thanks , chuck.

Anybody have the 50mm Mirage? If you do what are your setups with the elevons? I am trying to set them up properly. I have a awesome Dons setup with it.

Yep. Considered his setups for my Evader and Phazer. Wanted to keep my SkyAngels sub-30A and sub-1000mah lipos cause I know belly landers have a finite lifetime in my hangar.
