The T-45 is one of the best flying jets in this series! I flew mine today in 15+mph winds with zero issues. So much fun! So is that a 50mm Alpha Jet? If so I will for sure get one of those!!

I also got a new AMX! I was able to dial this one in perfectly and i flies wonderful! All stock and on 4s! very quick and much better than before!

I made the ailerons barely move and let the tail surfaces move a lot. It flies really nice now!

Any word on deltas? I would love a Eurofighter Typhoon.

Still waiting for some type of update from Jalin. He has been conspicuously absent and unreachable of late. Last time I talked with him, he was opening another factory, in his hometown. And Hobbico reps were visiting it. I always worry a little that, should he get "interest" from Hobbico, that they may ask him to stop "chatting" with me about his projects and what not.? I do not think the larger US distributors like folks to be very aware of the where or who of their overseas manufacturing. But hopefully he is just busy as heck right now.

I hope Hobbico don't try to become the sole supplier of these planes. Competition is good.

I too would be sad if Hobbico stepped in and ruined our fun, and good prices!

I like the idea of a 50mm Alpha jet - nice color too! SWEEEETTT!

Competition is good. Even if a company attempts to lock things up and become a sole supplier, it usually doesn't last.

I totally agree! Very visible and super stable jet as well!

AEORC now has their EDFs available in 40, 45 and 50mm sizes. Hu of AEORC has some performance data available. I hope to have these sizes to experiment with in some of my Sky Angel jets soon!

Would be very nice if those AEORC fans are a drop fit into these JPower fuselage?

Right off the bat I can tell you they aren't exactly a drop in. The AEO fans have an integrated inlet bell where the stock fans do not. All that will be required is to remove some foam to accomodate the inlet bell. It will be simple.

Other option may be to use the weak stock housing or housing from the popular 6 blade aftermarket replacement. At least you get the good motor to impeller unit. 5800kv...wow no need for 4S for me.
