my EDF40mm jet

Just thought id post on this thread as my scratch built EDF40 seems to fit in well.
Maidened it at the weekend and I was over the moon with the results.
Total weight is 154g , running it on a 7.4 V 500mAh battery.

Nice. Weight is great and looks like it flew real well. Thanks for sharing. Got a name for her yet?

Why don't you edit post #1 and go advanced, place the last picture you have on page 2 of your thread, even if shrunk a little. That way when people click on they can see your design and then link over to your thread. I think you would get more interest that way? Just my opinion.

Still flying great but id like to make it less responsive within the design (ive used expo as my flying isnt that good at the moment , Im used to flying an easy star glider). It rolls very easily and Id like calm that down so what can I do to make it more docile? Any suggestions appreciated

Nice work.

If the push rods are not already in the outside holes, you could reduce the throws by moving them out.
