Trim Aircraft Spectre goes EDF

Hi all from Germany,
well, i did it again and beathed a bit life to an old DF Mode. I got last year a little damaged Spectre, repaired it and converted it to EDF. Today i did the second flight and this is the result.

Hello Mikael,

thank you,
the ESC came directly from Sunrise but there are now some distributors selling them. Highfly had them also in there program.

Best regards

Hello Gents,

thank you all.
I only did two flights at the moment, so i am not really fit with the Spectre but the flight caracteristics of that plane are really nice.

Hello all,
thank´s for your comments.
I flew the Spectre now several times and must say, it´s a wonderful Jet to fly. The performance with the TF4000 is amazing, ok a bit loud, but a fast Sportjet is allowed to scream a bit
Tony, you did a great Job several years ago to develop such a good Airframe
Also the slow fly caracteristics are so good, until now, i found no bad habbits at all.
On the other hand, the Gensace lipos gave this Powersystem performance that i never had before. The TF4000/ HET 700-98-840 and Sunrice ESC is near 7000 W.
With all other cells that i tried, i was in the range off about 125A and 5300 W.
I attached you the Logs from the IISI Telemetriesystem from the flights. The second flight i did, i had a real flighttime from 6.30 min. with a max from 154 A

Best regards
Reinhard

Hi again,
because i had to rip off the TF4000 from the Spectre to try it in my F18, i decided to put in my existing TJ100 HP in the Spectre. The TJ100 was installed in my Prototyp Viperjet but crashed unfortunately this year. So the Unit was laying around and have now a new home. As i want to go flying today it began to rain, so i only made some testruns. The installed thrust came to about 5,2 kg with an AUW from 6,46 kg. The Viperjet had 8,2 kg AUW, so i think this should work
Here is a Video from August with the TF4000
