Managed a short flight today of the AMX and the helmet cam worked!.
It helps a lot if someone throws it for you.!!

This the second flight of the AMX kit bought from HobbyKing.
Cyclone Power 50mm 10Blade EDF
Turnigy 2627 4200kv outrunner
Blue Series 30A ESC
2x Corona 918 9gr servos - Taileron/Elevon configuration. Ailerons pinned.

In the airframe the setup pulls:
3S 850mah 45c battery - 190watts at 10.8v and 17.5amps
3S 1000mah 45c battery - 205watts at 11v and 18.6amps
4S 850mah 25c battery - 370watts at 14v and 26.4amps

These are not peak. They are taken after the fan runs on full throttle for 10seconds.

Sounds pretty good and goes very well. I can't stand the noise of low blade count fans any more.

On full throttle on 4S it picks up a lot of speed and get small pretty quick so I can't say that I explored its speed capabilities.

On 3S it needs at least half throttle to keep going.

This fan needs 4S

So got in both my 8 blades edf units today and found out there's no way to make them work with the stock motors or edf units. So I guess I'm gonna have to buy the complete 8 blade unit that comes with the 5800kv motor and motor shaft adapter and I'll just have two spares. Any idea if I sand down the lip if it will effect performance or airflow? I plan to just make it even with the rest of the unit.

Got my Katana today! Made it here with another plane in literally like 3 days. Thats half a world away in 3 days! Gotta love/hate ems The quality of the foam is nice, the already glued in pieces are lined up, the decals look decent (for the price) the fan however... is miserable! Its soo far out of balance. There are blades that have flash (not sure if thats the term in this type of molding) that strike the shroud and its really just awful to look at! Other than that, I think its a keeper. I will be flying bone stock first, then going to a thrust tube, then going to the wemo/6k,kv wicked setup. Cant wait for a calm day

My experience with the F-18 is that it flies better this way, so interested to hear the views of others.

its great rigged that way , i did a flight report on mine just a ways back in this thread.

Sounds good! But you need to limit the amount of throw on the wings surfaces if you ever want to throw it on your own. I saw it do what mine used to do before it became uncontrollable... The tail does all of the work. I am loving how that fan sounds though!! Thanks for posting!

EMS can be awesome and awful all at the same time! It usually shows in 2-4 days when I do it that way. But I have been waiting for things to show up in warehouses stateside before I go for it. The Katana was purchased from Hobby B and it took about 3 weeks to get! Not gonna do that again...EMS or stateside only...

Gonna maiden the 55mm equipped Screamer tomorrow! Can't wait to see how that goes! Will post results when I get them!

I took one and it fit perfect in the back compartment...not sure were the cog should be yet...it is the easiest kit to assemble out of the f9f and t-45 which i have and i like the servo in the back..very nice designed plane...thax again

I found this stock motor from HobbyB http://www.hobbyb.com/skyangel-2605-...?cPath=128_141 I see they also sell a pack of 5 edf units for $19...Anyone know if all hardware is included to mount motors in these edf units? also i see they sell 6 bladed fan whats the performance difference using the stock motor..i am guessing it draws a little more amps and possibly a slight increase in thrust along with a slight sound change...thax

Great tip! Looks like the culprit for all of my failed attempts to hand launch before.

It definitely felt that way. Need to dial them down a lot.

I was close to ordering this motor for a future Stinger, but in the last minute changed to the 2836.
