Just ordered some 3S1800 25C lipos from Hobbypartz, they are only $13.50 each. This will be a perfect match for this model and motor.

I ordered 5 samples and have 3 left if a few people want to try one early. The rest of the order will be here in about 10 days.

Hey don Thanks again for the motor. Just wondering also the kv of this motor is i know the sticker you sent on it said high but is there a number or is it top secret. But now as we talked before about the f16 being a faster air frame i might have to rip the 5400 out of it to put the wemo extremo in it. But my real question is the 50 mm f35 and l39 that are coming out as those are in the 64mm world to know as faster jets do you think if i get a f 35 that i will see faster speeds yet. I really want to come close to 100 on these little guys with a 3s. and if you can break 90 with the f16 if you do the swap just wondeing what a faster airframe will bring to the table.

I have been avoiding the KV issue as I am not ready to publish the KV value yet. Eventually I will but not yet would like to sell some before Hobbycity has their version up for sale I still kind of think the F16 is going to be the fastest, hard to say though until the new airframes come out. But when they do I will have a build thread for both :-)

Yeah, the F-35 is a fat (pronounced "slow") airframe so it definately won't be faster than the F-16. But it does have the advantage of being more structurally "stout."

I just got my shipment in of the new Wicked 6000KV motor for the Wemotec Micro Fan, here is the test data:

"Wicked Wemo Extremo" 6000KV motor: 350 watts 57,500 rpm on 3S

This will be a great upgrade to make your 50mm EDF jets scoot on 3S lipo!

I test flew the F18 with the Hobbypartz 3S1800 lipos and this is THE perfect lipo for the 6000KV motor. The Battery is long and skinny and fits in the body and will require no fuselage mods to make it fit. Flight times were about 4 minutes.

Still flying this one Don? Still like it without ailerons?

I've got one of these F-18s on the way and debating about the ailerons. Also picked up a used Wicked4800/Wemo combo for it, along with some 1300mah 4s packs. Should be fun, at least until that new little T-33 comes out. The guts of the F-18 will probably find their way into the T-33

Will do.

Ailerons -- yes or no? How is the roll rate without them?

I think it is perfectly fine with no ailerons.

Maybe I'll try it both ways and see how it goes...


Thanks for the scoop and all the build pics along the way!
