Various outlets do the specific gear for the 50mm JPowers series ... but they are fixed nose and require modification to add steering.

The Stinger is a set that has integral steering and costs less for actually a better system.

Here's a video showing at start removal of gear prior to hand launch. The Nose leg stub left after removal - in fact provides a good point for attaching a bungee hook ...

The stinger 64 set is a nice set just a bit on the heavy side. Small edf jets are sensitive to weight and CG. Can still fly but I worry about performance reduction. Also the steering servo require cutting out some foam to install inside fuse, a bit more work.

In fact the weight of the Stinger is not much more than the proprietary stuff except for the nose servo.

I fitted it to my T45 which flies with anything from 1300 3S up to 1600 4S without any change of weights added to tail ... I have about 30gr fixed to tail (15gr either side of fin) ... my CoG ranges from about 60mm down to 15mm back from LE at fuselage and she flies fine whatever I put in her.
Speed reduction is small in fact I would estimate about 5 - 10kph only. I would not fly it with a small 3S pack though ... a 1300 size or more to keep amps up ...















Of course there are alternatives ... all I say is this combo works well and gives full steerage up front ... removeable for hand / bungee launch ... etc.

And for less price than a servo .............. ??

You've seen the video earlier ...
