I do, but since it is one of the planes I sell, I don't give out the .dxf. Sorry.

bench tested it today
AUW 17.3 oz, 2505-2900 microDan, MAS 6x4, 2200 mah 3S nanotech, 35 Amps, 11.34 volts, 400 watts
I was gonna try 4S too, but the 3S numbers are scarey enough on 17 oz of flat foam
I have run this setup on a funjet and hit 110 mph, I think this one might evaporate......have to steer energy away from the crowd!

Has anyone tried the 2826/6 instead of the 2212/6 motor? The specs. look very similar and I was wondering which one had more power. I seem to have accumulated a couple of the 2826 motors and want to try them in this model. Thanks for any help.

Don,

I have flown both. No appreciable difference between the two motors.

Got to maiden mine today in full dress!
Really floats with 1800mah 3S
High speed was ok on 3S and not much faster on 4S, I was thinking the airframe had a lot of drag and is perfect on the 3S.
Flew great until a servo locked up and downed it!

after putting new servos in the F-22 I learned something new about my DX8 radio.....My 12FG will limit the throws end point adjustment on the servos when mixed. It appears the DX8 doesn't or I didn't set it up right. On max throws say with full up elevator I was giving the elevons a right turn and the servos go even further and stop at max mechanical throw limiting the servo and thus.....burning out a digital servo.
need to check max throws at the corners of the sticks for binding

I'll have to take that back about no difference between 3S and 4S due to drag cause tonight I noticed the prop was on backwards!

back to the field tomarrow!

I personally would not even bother using digital servos in this plane. As it's a belly lander it will get it's share of hard landings and unexpected "arrivals" to the ground.

I use good ol cheap HXT900s in all of my full sized pusher jets. Work just fine, and only cost about $3 each.
