We FINALLY hit a great day to fly here in NorCal. Don and I maidened our Great Planes Phazers and then we got the EffluxRC equipped Katana up in the air. I did the toss and Mr GP125racer minded the tiller. The balanced Wemo Micro fan sounded nice and smooth. I will let Don talk about the flight characteristics
but he gave it a big thumbs up after the flight! The Katana really moved nicely on the Het Wemo combo IMO. The 300 watts was much better to it than I had thought it might be.

Thats great Jon. I flew a T 45 again 1st flight in months and was pleased as always with how solid it behaves. James tried a maiden on his HET/Wemo powered Concept X , but I launched to steep and it wing overed and nose planted. So now he's put that fan in the Grippen ... So I'm anxious to try it tomorrow.

Nice video and flying Mike. The knife edge Fun Cub was great and the alloy fan in the F-22 is the fastest F-22 I've seen

Looks great Jon!
Awesome pics as usual.
Sorry I only had the 3s motors in stock at the time. The Katana really shines on the 4s motor.



Vegas Aces (Ace in the Hole) is in two weeks. Gonna miss ya there.

...........................................

Good luck and have fun with the Grippen AL.

I think I'm going to stop filming my 50mm planes for a while until I find something new.
My new videos looks like my old videos and I'm flying them the same way.
Lol! Prob a good time to do some stupid (but safe) flying.
Hi Miketre,

Did you use a 4S with the stock setup or did you change anything? Speed looked very decent. I'm shopping for a 50mm edf model, most likely a Skyangel. Maybe Katana. I wanted the Screamer but now I want something with a rudder instead, like the Katana or others.

Katana is the only one that comes set up for a rudder. With any of the other Skyangel models you'll have to add the rudder yourself.

You don't slo fly the Raptor very much?
The F-22 in the video was flown pretty much full throttle. I was in a rush to go home. I had charged probably about 30-40 packs of batteries and was too hungry to go on. Lol. Anyway, mission failed. I heard thunders in the distant and cut the flying short. had to fly the rest of the packs this morning.

My F-22 was a kit from HobbyB. I put in a HK 4S alloy, a 30A ESC and i think corona digital servos. having a rudder is fun, but like Joe said, only the Katana comes with it. I modded my T-45 with a rudder and had fun doing KE passes with it. I had a video of it previously. It's worth noting that I had to go full throttle on a 4S setup to maintain a level altitude in KE.

Corsair,

The A-4 looks great. Wish they would come out with an F-4J(Navy) Phantom II.

They had one prior to all these new models, I can't understand why it went away. It was about these same size as the current models and had a 64mm fan crammed in there. Performance was great!
