Fei Bao F-5 Tiger EDF conversion

My PST Panther was lost due to a stall on landing, being rebuilt on another thread here. Taking the XPS Pro fan and new XPS 18S 200 AMP ESC installing it in a Fei Bao F-5 Tiger.

Going with 14S 6800ma to start. I'll be posting pictures when I get started this weekend. Airframe empty weighs in at 15 lbs. Going to be a fun project.

14s That should move that airframe

Hey Bob, glad to see your starting on the new project. I will watch as this is a rather large airplane and will be nice to see how you deal with ducting and installation. I'll keep a watching.

Well she is coming back home to the garage after Christmas. Now I need to find a XPS Dynamax Extreme 2 for it. Want it ready to fly for the Spring 1/8 Air Force Scale Fly-In.

Have you tried the Scorpion conversion yet?

They're selling their 5035 700kv motor with threaded 8mm shaft and the dynamax center body for 220 shipped.... not a tam or dyn-e-max hub but I'm not thinking about going above 14s with it either....I'm sure that motor is good for 14s

I might even by another...

That is one fine jet. I found one for a tad over 900.

Time to do this one:
