NEW F-14 Twin 70mm fan's - From EDF Hobbies - made by STARMAX

Hello i am so exited

I am going and picking up the new F-14 with twin 70mm fans made by STARMAX.

This plane will be nice with twin 70mm i probably put in a wemo 70mm and 2500kv 6s motor from cyclon power or an arc and then run it on 5S.

I will start a build threat hear really soon

Also working on covering the Flyfly/Rc Lander Mig-29 soon to be readdy

Cheers

Per,

Pictures please. The pre-production one on Pete's (Banana hobby) video has a non-scale nose and canopy, hopefully the one you pickup is the improved version. Where are you going to fly the F-14? I would love to see it fly in person.

I didn't think this F14 was supposed to come with electric retracts. Do they come with the stock kit or was that your own upgrade? Also, please please please post pictures of a side clear view of the canopy and nose section to see if any improvements have been made. Thanks!

I just have bad experiences with the whole swing wing thingie. The bigger the more headaches. I'll watch and see how this turns out. Burnt servos, stripped and toasted you name it.

I am making progress on mine. The center section is very solid.
Mine did come with electric retracts with suspension gear.

Nice plane!!
I ordered one too.

X-30: Where did you get yours with e-tracts? Could you share pics?

I was planning to use micro pneumatic retracts.

Regards.

how good does the swing wings work? What size servos are they using? Is there aalot of buzzing? Can it handle it with weight on it in flight?

Or not....

It seems he does not after all that big of an influence to the manufacturer as he mentioned since this F-14 has made it into final production to us with the concorde style nose we did not like much.

Ah well....
