I was fiddling for the retract switch, while turning right after takeoff. So, I looked at the radio Kinda bummed about that one. Oh well, Ya lives, and ya learns.
It was a pig, at only 87mph. But I think it may be the fastest one so far. Wasn't a speed run, just a doppler of Gene flying it at WSEF.

Here's the efflux RC hybrid EDF that I posted yesterday in The MONSTER Squall and Viper speed contest threads. As mentioned weeks ago it's comprised of:
...Shubie rotor (we had the Shubie rotor here, but the Mini Fan Pro rotor could be used at a lesser cost)
Seems we already have have someone claiming this to be thier idea, and selling them. Good work!
We are currently working finalizing the ESC placement, and the intake liner on the Squall.

The other thread was not the place to discuss this. But I will say it here.
Being the Maylasia dealer for Skyworld products, I'm telling you that That efflux RC created the "Hybrid" Skyworld EDF. Not Etreme RC.
Look back at my personal and "efflux" posts and you'll see. My inquiry to WeMoTec regarding my selling thier products has not been answered yet. So now Extreme is off and selling the very same thing, and impressing that "he" developed it. Just not true. I've not said it publically before, but I've been warned by a number of vendors regarding his business practices. He makes disbarraging comments about Chinese products in the forums, then conducts himself in the very same manner.

As I said in the other thread, I have been selling lander ALLOY fans with wemotec rotors for almost 2 years, I never claimed to have "developed" that idea either, combining different housings and rotors has been going on for years... I started adding MIDIFAN rotors to FlyFly kits, now everyone does it, so what?
Which "vendors" have been warning you about business practices eh? I say it as I see it, if a product is great I will agree, if its dodgy I certainly wont pretend any other way, that has definitely rubbed up some chinese vendors.
As for skyworld fans I have had their correspondence for QUITE some time, I just havent gone posting it all over the forums until I was satisfied it would be a product I would support.
Where do you get off telling another vendor in another country what he can and cannot sell??

The last time you were here, you were degrading the Skyworld product, as not living up to the HET products efficiency. Now your back? Because your established and in a better position than me? Good for you. Now you can market the setup I've been suggesting for months.
As for me, I have been working with Skyworld to improve the product for 5 months.
Your correct, I don't own it, and its a free market. A worldwide market.
Your reputation preceeds you. I wish you the best.

I have been "marketing" an alloy fan product with wemotec rotors for almost 2years, lets get the facts right, skyworld is not the first and sure wont be the last to cnc up a housing. Nor is it the only housing out there that has had the wemotec rotor added to it!
As for improving the product, what part? the rotor? The housing appears to me to be unchanged from their original design photos. Again, the rotor is of no interest to me, I too have spoken at length to skyworld from mid last year, but I have not stepped on yours or anyone elses toes regarding carbon fibre rotors (stupid of me to do the honourable thing from the looks of it).
I have however made sugestions to them as have a few others around the world.
Its really simple, 18 months ago I was running an alloy housing with a wemotec rotor and various HET motors, I was selling minifan rotors to those with damaged lander fans, there is nothing new about this, we replaced lander 90mm rotors with wemotec also.
Last time I was "here" was to suggest you look at the figures posted as there appeared to be differences that could have explained the low figures you were getting in the newer motors. What was the reaction? Flame me to death rather than even look at what I was suggesting. So much for trying to help people...
Its funny how manipulative you guys are, reporting posts which have no real reportable content, the aggression shown when someone asks a question raises more eyebrows than anything
