Jetset44 F-14 Parkjet converted to Twin EDF

Hey guys, just thought i'd share my latest weekend project - a Fanfold Parkjet F-14 designed by Steve Shulmate (Jetset44) which is designed for Pusher Prop power, which I have converted to Twin Brushless EDF.

The controls are Full Flying Tailerons, Adjustable wing sweep, and Throttle
The Plane was built per his plans, with the exception of taileron servo mounting to better accomodate the fan ducting. The inlets are stock, with an intake ring at the front of the fan, and Photo Paper exhaust tubing at 100% FSA.

AUW is 26oz's, and the measured thrust is 22.3oz's
Power comes from two Wemotec Microfans, each with an Astroflight 010 8T Motor, Phoenix 10 ESC's, and a single 4s 2600 Li-Poly.

A quick shopping list put together by a great member Awnesh:

...How's it perform you ask? Just check out the video in my gallery (Link Below)

I plan to keep this one around for the Jet Rally - I want to see the look on the turbine guy's faces when I tell them it's made from $4.00 in Fan Fold Foam!

Plans are posted for Free (but a small donation to Jetset44 is appreciated) in this thread:

Thanks for all the positive comments guys!

It's actually all Kevin Cox's fault - his darn F-18 is what got me hooked on EDF - just look at my avatar
