2013 EDF High Lights

Every year is seems the EDF hobby keeps getting pushed further and further. I pretty much like anything that flies when it comes to R/C ...but my first love is large EDF and EDF in general. For me it's been watching Schubeler and BVM jets keep on pushing what we can fly as EDF pilots. I'm friends with both on facebook so it's fun to get their updates. Another awesome project was of course what Brent and Andy did with their giant T-38's. I'm getting fired up and ready to have a great new year flying in 2014!!

So as a review of 2013 what are some of your highlights? doesn't have to be a video, maybe just a great day of flying or new gear that made the hobby better.

Schubeler gets my nod as the top this year.....they have put out a ton of great products and have shown video after video of their gear at work.
Here are a few of my favorites:

You have to give this one a few minutes it just gets better as it goes:
Grenchen 2013: Viper Jet MK2 von Tomahawk Design (5 min 3 sec)

Twin scale at it's best!! really inspired me on my own project:


Who could forget Brent's awesome T-38 what a work of art!!:

Brents T38 returns to the sky (5 min 33 sec)

BVM did a great job with the skymaster A-10:

BVM Electric A10 at Farview (8 min 19 sec)

Lets all have a safe and great 2014... I will get out and fly much more this year

its been a good year for sure ron! ive got most of the bugs worked out of the model since that video was taken. heres a recent video, showing that ive opened the flight envelope a little since that first flight....theres 2 flights on this vid, the second one is a little better....though my touchdown was a bit hard lol
