So you're not sure why people like the Phase-3 EF16?

I have had three...it's a simple, cheap, clean, easy to build EDF that will go over 100mph on relatively little power (for a EDF).

Folks have modified this airframe to be amongst the fastest foam models in the world.

What's not to like?

its ok for the money. i must be a fun jet fan, just fancy something bigger. i think a lot of level 100mph plus figures are exagerrated. the funjet can easily do it on 4 cells you can feel it pulling vertically, but im not convinced edf like f16 s can do that . just my opinion

You're entitled to your opinion...but check out the thread. These guys know what they're talking about and the performance is not a matter of opinion.

Yes, a Funjet can certainly go that fast and since it's a prop driven plane, (which is generally more efficient than a ducted fan) it will go faster on less power.

But...that's missing the point of EDF coolness.

Regardless, the Phase3 Squall! is a different plane so we're talking about this in the wrong thread.

Also wrong thread....and wrong forum since they're not foamies.
You can look these up yourself.

Speed typically requires more voltage. I'll agree with you there. In this plane, iirc, you need ~500W to hit triple digits...much more easily attainable with 4s than with 3s.

All of the 100+ EF-16 setups I have seen in person have been 4s+. The real high speed guys are running 6s, I believe.

2200, 2600. About three to four minutes with four or five full throttle runs while running 1/2 the rest of the time. Just ordered a 5000 nano-tech form HK for $42. That should make me happy.
