For power I decided on the:

Wicked 4800KV Wemotec microfan combo
Pentium 40 amp ESC

Photos:
1) added some wire to the ESC battery leads

2) mounted the fan unit, I moved it back about 1/4" to clear the wooden mounting blocks.

Got some more work today. This is a real easy build, not too much to show you really.

Last comments before the maiden:

1) the outlet is about 93% FSA of the wemo fan. If you want lees top speed but more thrust then leave the outlet as it is. For 80% FSA (what I always use) then you need to make a wedge cut that is 3/8" wide at the end. Then reglue to get the correct outlet sizce of ~37.6mm. Before gluing you can reforn the foam with your fingers so that it will be round when glued together instead of oval.

2) AUW is 19.3 ounces with a 4S 1320 lipo. That is about 350 watts per pound which is a nice number for these 50mm EDFs.

3) I used a razor and cut some of the foam hinge line to loosen up the ailerons and elevators to make the servo load a little less.

Next up is the maiden, hopefully tomorrow!

I'm going to be ordering one of these kits and will be getting a balanced wicked/wemo combo from you.

Who is selling these little jets now? I bought one through NP a while back but they are out of stock and looks like they're not planning on getting any more.
