Exeptional finish, Paul. Congratulations.
Looks like the the guys at the sign shop enjoyed the show.
Have you measured the actual thrust?
Hopefully my new ESCs will arrive next week.

hi2nr

why would you want to use 64 mm fan's on this??????
when it fly so nicly on the 70 mm fans
I have a free wing su-34(hobby lobby) that was ment for 64mm or 70 mm
well after trying both sizes the 70 mm flew the model so much
better I never thought of using the 64 mm again

with this you really have to push the 64 mm to get it to fly this
more amp/watts , less flying time

but thats just me

The 64 I'm using produces about 2lbs thrust each give or take a little which would give me a nice scale flight. I've used the 70s before and it doesn't seem so scale to me on 4s but on 3s yes. This is why I thought of using 64mm on 4s

Well if you have more power that is needed
to fly scale you use less throttle , my 737 fly scale at about 1/2 throttle

I like extra power as I fly off grass as well a paved runway .
you can alway throttle back .

but if you like your 64 mm , we will look foward to see
how they fly this.

Thanks Jurgen,
Haven't measured the thrust to be honest, thinking of hooking it up to some fish scales and see what kind of numbers it shows.
