Question
GWS F-15 EPO - Best power system

Hi all, thanks for taking the time to look at this...

Has anyone got a good idea of what motors and fans to put in a GWS F15 to make it really go well. I have recently bought the EPO version of the kit and was looking at power plants for it as it as mine comes with nothing. From what I have read on various forums the stock motors that come with the standard F15 kit are a little lacking in providing real "jet-like" performance and so I am looking for a little more poke to really make it a hot flier. Ideally I'd like to remain using the 2200 3S lipos that I have got, but if i have to go with a 4S setuop then any advice in that direction would also be appreciated.

Thanks again for taking the time to read this.

You might want to look at the EDF forum for advice but i would go for a viper tech fan (about 55mm i think) becasue they can go 3s or 4s brushless

look at www.greenairdesigns.com they are very good with fans and i have got many from them

Hi - thanks for your response - I had forgotten about GAD... I used to have one of their F5 pusher jets. Will take a look. Thanks again.
