BVM Bandit ARF conversion to eBandit...

Wow, someone liked it enough to start a thread for me! Heheh

I started this thread to make sure the description was accurate for anyone looking (searching in RCGroups) to convert as well as make sure I had control of the thread (if I'm going to post all our pictures and data). For now I have to leave you hanging as I'm getting ready to go to the field for the VioFan 6215 testing. I'll re-post the VioFan 5612 video's here for starters and put a forwarding post in the old thread to move here (you can close it too which will prevent new posts)...

nice! Love the bandit, like a electra but ya get more plane for not too much more money! The watts effect makes sense, cause only so much can go in and out due to available feed through FSA. you may even find the 12s setup on 5kw range well outperforms a heavier 6500w setup. least that's what was discovered on same plane with DS fans cause in the end 12 3/4 pounds was the average that could be sustained out the tail pipe.

You are so right on that one. We gained some weight, but we aslo went up 3lbs and change on thrust and 20 or so on efflux so we will see. I am happy so far with what we have.
