I have to say... this little jet received ALOT of attention at the AZ Electric Festival these past 4 days. Many of the big EDF guys could not believe how well this plane looked and flew for the price of the airframe and power plant.

Of course Mike's skills at the sticks didn't hurt either

They couldn't believe it cost less than $175.00, they couldn't believe the fan & motor combo was only $70.00, they couldn't believe the performance & sound on 6S, and they were amazed that the E-flite retracts are plenty strong for this setup!

Great Job Mike!! Only wish I had mine and we could have had them up in the air together.

cc pro bec

Thanks for all the info guys. If I do use the pro bec can I input it into 2 channels via y-harnesses so I can still use those 2 channels for flight control? I I ran out of channels on my Futaba 8 channel receiver and I wanted to separate the rudder from nose wheel, for obvious reasons to have better set up. I like the nose wheel having much less throw. Maxx Products makes a great reverse y-harness that has a small digital pod. Because I can't get to the hardware on the rudder, I use the y-harness to have adjustment to the rudder after the nose wheel is dialed in. The small pod is in on the inside of the fuse under the canopy. It's not like using sub-trim in the radio, but it's not bad. Stephan

I not sure if you can, but just shoot an email to CC and they can help. They're pretty good at it from what I have seen.

At the AZ Electrc Fest XPS had sets of Shulman Aviation electric retracts that would be a great fit for this bird. They are basically the smaller RC Lander housings with struts I've never seen. The struts are trailing link. They were selling them for $129.00 total at the show price.

They are probably not on their website but it would be worth calling them if interested. They are rated for up to 8lbs!

rc lander 90mm dps fan

I'm using the new dps rclander 90mm fan. It has a removable lip which I believe needs to come off to get the ducting on it. However, how do you actually mount it to the frame in the jet. It has no flanges to. I was thinking zip ties, but is this a good method? thanks for any info. Stephan

I did order a set of the rclander/cmp retracts. I also ordeedr a set of freewing 90mm F-18 retracts. I buddy of mine has them and said they pretty darn stout for 69 bucks. Also he said they use a 4mm instead of like most others 3mm shaft. That'll be a very good drop in and save ALOT of weight.
