3s 2200mah EDF jet WANTED

I am about to pull the trigger on this Freewing F15 from valuehobby (http://www.valuehobby.com/f-15-eagle...ver-ready.html). Total cost for it is $98.98 shipped to my door, and includes motor, servos, all the guts except the RX. I've flown lots of planes, but this will be my first EDF, and from reviews it sounds like this F15 is a good starter jet.

It seems like a great deal, but I just thought I'd ask here first...does anyone have an EDF they'd like to sell? My primary requirement is that it be able to run on 3s 2200 lipos. I already have a stack of them, and I don't want to buy a new set of batteries for one jet.

New, used, 50mm, 70mm, my options are open. If you have a jet that will run on 3s 2200 batteries, and can ship it to my door for a price similar to above, then I'd like to hear from you. I can't promise I'll buy it (hey, some things don't float my boat no matter what the price), but I'd certainly like to have a look.

Shipping will be to the Kansas City area, 64079 if that helps

Thanks and god bless

Thanks for the heads up guys.

Both of the links posted reference planes that are specd for 1300mah 3s batteries...will the 2200s fit? Not only will they fit, but will they fly with the extra weight? If so, than my list of options just got A LOT longer. The world is full of 1300 3s jets.

I'll just say that the freewing f-15 was my first edf and although I was super nervous, it was very easy to fly. My experience before this, was Super Cub, T-28 and UM Pole cat. This jet is much bigger than most 64mm jets, so it'a floater.

Not sure why you're looking for alternatives, but if you're looking for an even easier to fly than this, you can probably stop here. Even if there were easier than this one, should be very close. 2 things I don't like about this F-15: EPS foam is very easy to put dings on. Hangar rash nightmare ... Second, battery compartment on the bottom of the plane. Just minor thing there.

The 2200 will work with the f22 no problem, no mods, we fly them on 3s 2200
40c

and few have upgraded the ESC and fly on 4s 1800 40c with no other mods except a battery strap.
