Mini Swft wing converted to EDF

I used the 35mm fan and esc from a Hobby King micro MIG 15 (which was rubbish), to convert the Mini Swift to EDF. I was surprised and pleased with the way this combination worked.The battery is a 3s 600 mah Lipo (originaly 2s) and the duct was rolled fron 1/32" balsa to match the EDF case diameter.The outlet cone is 30 mm diameter for maximum thrust.I thought that the above wing mounting might give thrustline problems but there were none-hardly any trim adjustment was needed.

Sooo, How does it fly? Video? I've been wanting to do something like this with a wing also, or just using the tail of another plane (Airhogs titan glider). It seems like it would be very stable.

I've also been thinking about this to test different fans.
Nice conversion.

Mini Swift conversion

I have the pusher prop version also, which flies great.The EDF one seems to be just as stable and is much faster on full throttle.It sounds like a swarm of angry bees!
