The F-35 Lightning, 70MM, 360- degree, Multi- Vectored Thrust, EDF Jet Build video

The F-35 Lightning, 70MM, 360- degree, Multi- Vectored Thrust, EDF Jet Build video. This is a bare airframe kit that I purchased from Hobby-Lobby. In this video I go over what comes in the kit out of the box and what electronics I install. The airplane went together well and Im very pleased with the outcome. I hope you enjoy this build video and if any questions do develop, please let me know as I will try and answer them. Thanks for viewing. ...

F-35 Trust Vectoring Build Video 70MM (9 min 14 sec)

Nice video, very thorough! Can't wait to see how the 70mm 8 blade fan works on 3S.

I just got my hobby lobby f35 airframe this week too! I'm still building it but will be running DX7/AR7000, sapac MB-1/70mm fan combo, HXT900 servos, servo slower (retracts), 5S 3000/40c pack, 100 amp hobbywing, some gyro wizardry, etc.

Nice video!

I Recommend 1 to 1 but 2 to one will take a lot of power and a big battery

Hard to say, my rates are still way too sensitive and it was windy out.

So today I had a catastrophic failure of the EDF. I give up on jets, if anybody wants to buy the airframe/power system from me for cheap PM me.
