I shipped my stock Hyperflow fan to Don of Don's Wicked and he installed his motor and dynamically balanced it for me. Runs very smooth and fast.

Came home about an hour ago from flying this little rush, put another 4 flights.

This thing is hard to see coming head on or flying away (very small front view/section), better visible colors would help.

BTW, I moved the CG 5mm back and she lands a lot easier.

I REALLY like Cyclone motors and have several but none in this size...This Cyclone motor is also a little lighter than the recommended ElectriFly inrunner...Knock on wood but I have yet to burn up a Cyclone motor or receive a defective one...

I wonder if there is any difference between the two rotors running wise (you would need different motor adapt.).

I don't have one of these fan units, but they both look different in the inner hub area. One looks like it keys to the motor adapter with a hexaganol shape (Evader and F-16) and the other looks like it keys with notches that are spaced 180 degrees apart (also appears to have more webbing material on the inside of the hub so it's probably heavier.)

I did just happen to jump on this forum with that comment; perhaps I didn't realize your involvment with this design and that you probably did notice that obvious difference (apologies.)

I still have the RZ....what a hoot and thanks for the comment. Although, they were RD350LCs in Canada and still available after '85 correct? I still lust after the RD500 or the coveted aluminum frame RZV500 from Japan.

Don't apologize, its all good

The RZ500 is a sick machine that I would love to own but only if I can get the japanese version as I hate the steel frame, I love two stroke machines but unfortunately they are a thing of the past.

Grand Prix Racing has never been the same for me since they switched to 4 stroke

Agreed! Only real men could ride an unregulated non-big-bang- 500cc twin two-stroke GP bike (sans all the anti-spin, anti-wheelie electronic wizardry.) Although, they are turning serious lap times....just not as dramatically

Hate to get off topic but I had to respond...I had a 500cc Kawasaki triple two stroke that I bought for $500 with only 1500 miles on it...The bike looked BRAND NEW!!!...It had been sitting for years in a garage and the seals between the cylinders had shrinkage allowing pressure between the cylinders to corrupt each other...It was a rather expensive fix back in the mid '80's (new crankshaft) so I sold it for what I paid for it...If I still had it today it would bring a pretty penny regardless of the needed repair...If you've ever ridden one of these (two stroke) bikes then you would have been blown away by the horsepower and torque!!!...

Anyway---Back to the Evader thread---Have any of you figured out why this plane can snap after a split "S" even though the speed has been kept up???...Too much elevator throw or what???

I have been reading about that phenomenal and I have performed the split S maneuver lots of times and it never snapped on me, I also talked to a good friend of mine that flies the evader and he also feels the same so I can't comment on that.

I fly on high rates only with my elevator rate being a tad higher then the recommended setup.

I've flown mine as you have with high rates...I would really like another Evader as this plane looks like a mini BVM Viper!!!...I just don't want to waste $$$ to have the split "s" snap on me again...I'm a very seaasoned flier (40+ years of experience, flying jets since 1985) so I do know how to fly jets..The snap took me by surprise!!!...Perhaps I had the CG a tad more rearward than what the plane liked...But I do like to have my planes fly with only a touch of down elevator when inverted...
