Nitroplanes Honda 420 EDF, twin 90mm

Tried to just bump the old thread, but it was too old.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1091539

Nitroplanes has a new batch of these. The new price is $109! They hooked me with that price. I pulled the trigger on one. $135 to my door. Who know`s when I`ll have time to put it together, but I couldn`t control myself.

I did the same thing. When I saw EDF, I ordered and it was the prop version.
It was misleading. I'm stuck with it now I guess.
I wonder if I just get a set of the EDF nacelles if they would attach to the wings of the prop version.

It's the same wing set up,(2) hole where the nacelles screw in Either will work.

I decided to stay with the order. I think that I can mod the nacelles and make them work for 90`s. Slice them, open them up and add an extra part that will serve as a hatch. I little work, but I`m use to that on the Nitroplanes stuff. I always mod them some, to get what I want.

Maybe you can beat the bushes and find someone who crashed theirs and the nacelles survived.

Showed up late this evening. It is the prop version, but with a little work I will be able to fit 90s in the nacelles. The added work will be worth it, because they nacelles will be much closer to the scale size, and much cleaner too.

After looking at pics and vid of the full scale Honda on line, the Nitro EDF version looks pretty silly with those huge pods.

A pair of the new 80mm sized fans with the right motor would even fit better and should be plenty to give the plane scale-like performance, but that`s not my style, so mine is getting 90s.

I`ll get some pics up, probably tomorrow, well, later today.

Somebody should send an email to NP and tell them to update the product description. It is very misleading.

But still a good deal for the prop version nonetheless. People pay more than that for foamie parkflyers.

Maybe I should write them and complain. I could let them know their mistake and might get a discount too. Not
