its just stock for now , had one of the blades come off the fan on the third flight , not sure just what happened the whole of the impeller was off the motor and one blade had gone so dont know what went first the blade of the impeller came off the motor shaft .
new one ordered had to order a whole new fan unit as i cant find anywhere to order just the impeller over here in the UK

New to this model
Picked one up from Hobby People, the 4s version for 69.00 on the Black friday sale.
I have a couple of questions before I build it, first the fan and motor
I want to use this fan;
Change Sun 10 blade 70mm
with either this motor
Dynam Meteor motor
I have two of these
or this motor
Sapac 2842d 4s motor 3200kv
I have one of these
and these servos
9G EXI Digital Metal Gear Servo D213F
oh yeah 120 amp esc
Sky Lipo 4s 40c 3000mAh batteries
I will be coating most of the plane with Finishing epoxy, using 1 dram epoxy with 1 dram of hardener mixed with 1/2 dram of 91% alcohol to thin is out a little and help it lay down smoother. This I have tried before and like the results.
Please give me your thoughts.

sorry cant help you with your fan choice or motor as i dont know them ,
just make sure you beef up the inlet scoop a bit as they take quite a bashing on landing.
apex , my scoop was copied from either a post on this thread or on the speed thread some one posted ! works a treat landings are so much better the plane just slides in nice !
the lawn dart was my fault i set the battery in the wrong position and cog was to far back , flew a lovely loop on launch lol

Think about that 3000 kv motor I've been reading the CS 10 blade does better on slightly lower Kv on 4s, good C' rating helps also
King I see you got the scoop!

the scoop is totally cool
i used .6 oz glass cloth and wbpu on mine with a carbon rod under the nose , its well worth the time for the extra strength it gives the airframe

Guys...does anyone other than Hobby People sell this aircraft?
They don't seem to offer an air-frame only and the kit with motor/fan/esc is too much $ considering I want to run a custom power system.
