Axon Micro F4 Phantom II 30mm/40mm EDF Jet

Heres a preview of the new F4 we have coming out.
It will take a 30 or 40mm fan, needs about 60 grams of thrust measured in
the jet to fly well.

Lipo size - 300-600mah 2s or 3s
Wingspan - 14"
Weight - 70-95 grams
2.5g servos

EPP and Depron
Indoor or Outdoor capable, depending on weight.

Assembly: Fuselage comes preassembled, you will have to glue the wings and stabs on, same as the micro P51. Then the intakes go over the sides of the fuselage.

Estimated arrival - Late August
Video in two weeks after I get back from Vacation!

P.s. Nitrocharged has been working on a SUPER HOT special fan unit which he will debut for this baby... more news on that soon!
-Josh

Video Update:
Axon Micro F4 Phantom II 30mm/40mm EDF Jet (1 min 47 sec)

Don't know how fast yet - all I know is that Nitro's Fan unit gives it near 2:1 thrust ratio -

Aw man now you've done it! The F4 is my all time favorite since my dad worked on these and a friend of mine(just recently passed away) built them for MacDonnel Douglas. Bring it on! I'll buy!

Any ideas on pricing? This may be just the thing to take to KIEF in October. Both indoors and out? Sweet!

I hope to be at KIEF with the whole fleet of micros.
That place would be perfect. When I said indoor, I meant big indoor space, bigger than a typical gym size.
Another thing to note is that the glued the vertical stab a little too far back
it should not be hanging off the end like that.
Pricing is not determined yet.
Nitro's fan units will not be cheap as he makes them in his own shop.
I'm hoping he'll get some video of his prototype and post photos here too.
