does anyone know if the HobbyKing 40A BlueSeries Brushless Speed Controller has a spec that meets 6-pole 70,000 rpm?

Don told me the 50mm fans with modified higher KV will be best with this configuration

Hey Skyangels fans,

Well, I went ahead and popped for the F-16 to run with my T-45. Could not restrain myself. I got the plane, an 14.8v 850mah 4S 65C a 11.1v1000mah 3S 55C and a Ubec I needed for my scratchbuild twin edf airliner for $110.00 USD including shipping.

Best Fathers Day present I ever bought myself ! LOL

Hi

I'm just putting together a HobbyKing T33 and was considering not fitting the tip tanks. Can anybody tell me if the T33 flight improves with or without the tip tanks? I know they are not a nessessity, but I was wondering whether they are cosmetic only?

Leave the tip tanks for sure, it looks super cool flying. Change it to 4S and you will love it.

I had a T-33 and the first few flights were without the tip tanks. The plane flew great! Really fast and aerobatic! But it looks very weird! Put the tip tanks on and it actually flies even more stable than before and just a tad slower. But it looks really good in the air! It flies great on 3s but it happiest on 4s!

Ok thanks guys I'll leave them on. Did you guys glue them or tape them on, as I read one suggested taping them on rather than glue because he said they catch the ground on landing breaking the wing easily?

Dear Pilots,

For those of you who are familiar with Don's wicked 6000KV wemo setup requires 1800mah on the F-18.....can the same setup be applied to the F-16 mini? I guess what I am after is, if the f-16 can fit the 1800mah 3s without any modification like the f-18

You won't be able to fit an 1800 mAh lipo in the F-16..... the battery area is not big enough. the biggest I think you'll be able to fit is 1000 mAh.

Thanks Joe, your feedback is sincerely appreciated. I want to ask what your opinion is regarding dremmeling out the f-16 to accompany the 1800mah 3s...think this will cause CG issues or about right?

If you are using a stock motor and fan, anything heavier than a 1000 mAh will make it extremely nose heavy. With a heavier motor and fan, you might be closer...... the problem is still going to be the available room. If you can relocate the receiver further back into the wiring tunnel, you "might" be able to get a 1300 mAh lipo in there, but it's going to depend on the shape of the cells. They will need to be longer rather than thicker. The old polyquest 1250 would have been the proper shape as those were long and slim. You could cut out the divider that seperates the battery area from the rear electronics tray, just realize that space is a premium on the F-16

thanks Joe, sounds like the battery compartment space is different between f-18 and f-16....F-18 being the bigger compliance

I fly one of my Skyangel F-16 planes with Don's wicked 6000 kv Wemo, and use a Nanotech 1600 LiPo in it. The particular battery I found has a long, flat shape that is a perfect snug drop-in fit in the F-16 battery compartment, like it was made for it, and balances just right with no dead weight required (thanks to the heaviness of the Wicked/Wemo on the other end).

Different shape too. The F-18 is narrow and more vertical, the F-16 is wider and more horizontal.
