Well, less than a week and my replacement fuselage is in the mail on it's way. I must say, I am impressed with my one and only HK customer service encounter. From the moment I started the claim, till they had the fuselage order written up was 2 days. Not too shabby.

so whos tried the 70mm kit...i know its not part of this thread..but some of you must have some experience with it...how does it compare with the 64mm?

With 70mm you will have more aceleration in 4s configuration, but remember the weight of 14.8 volts batt,big motor.
I don't know your t-45 model, and your specs,but the weight its the same like our t-45's.
But 1500 Mah and 11.1 volts it seem a little poor!!.Mi recomendation:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...inch_64mm.html

And 40 amps ESC, and 11.1 volts 2200 mha.

If you want a standard performance.

Now if you want a better performance can opt for 8.14 volts and a 4500 kv cyclone turbojet.
This will have more speed with just a little more weight.


There is another option, if you want you can use this equipment also

Anyway, if you want a 70mm edf you will have to work to fit the unit in the plane.

Thank you for your feedback Leojet. I have this kit with me:

http://www.nitroplanes.com/60p-70mm-edf-combo.html

I already have a 60Amp plush in the t-45...the shroud on this 70mm fan does add to the circumference...

Another way I planned..

The edf 64mm you recommended I have on order and is over the pacific ocean right now...in conjunction with this motor

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=10923

this second option I will not have to modify too much foam....fingers crossed....


either setup im running 4s 2200ham minimum may go up to 2800mah 4s since the t-45 can take it...the weight im not too concerned...just want to see improvement.

My T-45 weighs about 2000g I run a 70mm alloy shroud 10blade CS fan and 4000mah batts it's heavy to hand launch but flies and glides fine I get about 130kmh level flight and about 6minutes flight with throttle management or 3-4min WOT

I think mine is 1/3 of your weight

But I don't get 130km/h ... BTW in case of crash ... I don't kill anybody even if I hit his face at full speed

ps: I'm going to use this micro GPS logger for check the speed of my T-45 (50mm and 64mm) ... I'm afraid 22g of extra weight could be too much for the 34mm T-45

I would be surprised if it would be otherwise

Still ... you may not know where it can land your bird in case of radio or any other problem

So ... a light bird is safer by nature

Help to choose retracts

Hello all,

I am ready to buy the T-45 from Hobbyking with the below parts at HK:

T-45 Goshawk kit

Motor HK2836 3800 kv

Turnigy Plush 60A ESC

EDF Hobbyking 64mm alloy 4000kv

AND (I will order both and decide which to use later)

EDF Ducted Fan Unit 7 Blade

Battery Turnigy Nano Tech A-PEC 2200 mah 65C

I already have EMAX ES08MD servos.


All the items above are in stock. But the last one, the DSR-A retracts are out. I was wondering if the DSR-D would fit as well. The main strut and wheel are 5mm longer and it is about 22g heavier. Did any of you already tried it?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I found the DSR-30TS retracts. More expensive than DSR-A but lighter!

I will also upgrade ESC to Turnigy 85A and EDF to Mercury Alloy 64mm

Disappointed my t-45 arrived today with no directions,no nose,or nose cone no screws to attach wings or whatever..not sure what needs to be screwed or glued...In past 6 months i have put together 12 foam kits and this is the only one missing parts and manual....I will have to contact HK and have them send me what i need... AlsoThe canopy must have to be cut to fit...But i must say the foam is good quality

Probably yes! I will just wait until sunday for a feedback of someone who actually have it! But seems like a better option than DSR-D or A.
