The Evader is finished and ready to go. Just need the weather to cooperate so I can test fly it. Here are some more photos of the build.

Nice Don,
I've been wondering about this build. These are supposed to be in this week at my not so close LHS. I have one on hold and was thinking of using one of your motors/ESC combos.

You are going to E-jets right??

I really like this jet and the assembly is very easy. I am hoping to get some good speed on this setup. I have a Nano tech 4S 2200 and 2650 lipo pack in the mail that should be here Tuesday and I am curious to see if these packs pump out more power. As far as E-jets goes I may show up as a spectator this year.

I could not wait until tomorrow for my originally scheduled maiden as it was too good of conditions outside when I got home from work so had to test fly and it was awesome! I was using a 4S2200 30C lipo from Hobbypartz the launch was easy with the bungee and needed only a little trimming to get it flying true. I had my son put the video camera down and grab the radar gun and he got me at 115mph and 119mph! This is an awesome jet! The winds were light so I am going to say this is a good solid 115 mph setup with the Wicked 4400 Plus motor. Tomorrow I am going to get than nanotech pack up for a flight.

Don, the Nano's definitely have good performance, but I actually managed to puff a 4s2200mAh 45c-90c today. I was running it on a Sapac MB1.

This was the first time that I actually managed to puff one though. Just food for thought on those Nano's.

I haven't tested that yet. I've got 4 of those Nano's. I'll use one that I haven't puffed yet and test it for ya.

Here are some video footage clips from yesterday. Sorry for the contrast but it is a new "sunglasses" camera I am messing with. Hand launch was VERY easy.

These are finally in stock and I have one on the way. Would you recommend your wicked 4800 on 4S for this bird?

sweeet, thanks. Should be pretty fast Did you ever fly this on your 2650mah packs? I have both 2200 and 2650's to use, probably start with the 2200's and then bump up to the 2650's.

Yep. I get that flat and level. Out of dive it really was cooking! Not bad for a hyperflow fan unit.
