I like the JAS-39. I'm currently working on a reduced size of Steve Shumate's plane for my website. It'll be built the same, just at about 66% of the normal size and will use the same electronics as in all my other mini pushers.

Jon, I may want to enlist your "services" next year at Vegas.

Pat, we are close enough together geographically speaking that you do not necessarily have to wait until then.

Ray, I also want to do something a little "special" power system wise
for that Mirage.

LOL, that is true. I'm going to try and hit a bunch of CA events next year. I'm sure we'll see each other at one or more.

I've got a bunch of these 50mm beauties. I'd like to add that JAS-39 to my collection as soon as it comes out. Oddly enough, I never was a big Mirage fan though. But a Kfir would be nice! (after seeing Brent's JHH beauty at Big Jolt, I'm a fan!)

For the people moving up to a 6 blade in order to run 4s on the stock motor two questions.

- Do you have a link to that 6 blade part?
- What ESC are you guy's running once you change to the 6 blade and 4s?

Thanks,
-mike-

I have just had my first two "maiden flights" with the mini L39. I must say this is my first EDF!

First i will start by telling you i had 3 'flights' yesterday my most successful being about 20 seconds of massive wing rock 'fun' before the inevitable nose in and a couple of hours of glue and repair.

Well today i was going out to fly my UMX Sbach and i thought i would take along the L39, might as well try again. This time i gave her a really hard push and as soon as she was in the air gave her full power and kept the nose down. It turns out she flies really stable and nice, as soon as EDF speed is reached. I'm glad i tried again with this one and will be putting another couple of batteries through her later.

Just as a foot note, I'm flying her complete stock at the moment as revived from HK but with a 1000mah 20-30c battery.

Anyway would love to hear from other fliers of this bird.

Does anyone know if the Thunder Power discount on lipo's for 50mm's is still in effect from the start of this thread? I've got three wicked setups coming from Don for my F-22,F-86,and a Mig-15 and I need new lipo's and they seem to have the best demisions for these planes. Thank's.

I talked with Shannon over at Thunder Power about that a few weeks back. My best advice ... call the number listed and ask for it. The more folks that do that, the better chance they will still honor it. The chap that originally set that deal up is no longer there. His replacement hopefully will see that these 50mm EDFs are still growing in popularity (1,450,000 hits+ on this review) and that they stand to benefit by honoring the discount.

Please let us know here how it works out if you DO ring them.

hi guys,

I'm just curious, has anyone gotten successful flights with the 50mm edf crusader?

When i first got it from hobbyking, i checked skyangels home page and they did have it in their products list. Now that i checked back, it's no longer listed as one of theirs. did they disowned it because it was a flop?

I couldn;t get mine to fly, shifted the c.g to 1/3 m.a.c, 3mm aileron reflex and it still won't fly, gave up and used it;s electronics for a t-45 mini instead

50mm deltas inbound...perhaps a week out? I would think distributors would have them also very soon now! We'll have hi-res photos and hi-def video of them over at HDFlyer.com ASAP.

SWEET!! I want that new Mirage! After flying my AMX with the new AEO fan I think that it would be awesome in that plane as well! But need to see it first...the battery bay especially!
