Cool
Another Wicked powered unique jet.

This one should fly this weekend.Its called a Wing Jet EP.Its not sold anymore and for a good reason.It had a problem with wings folding up.The fuse is very nice fiberglass,but wing is balsa and not very strong.I cut underside of monocoat off and added some sheer webbing and CF tow,and a CF spar.It still may fold but hopefully not.This thing was made for a 70mm fan....hmmmm The biggest battery you can fit is a 3s 2100,and thats what it called for,dunno what 70mm fan could use that,maybee in the brushed days.
I installed one of Dons new 5100KV in a used 64mm shroud with a cutdown Wemo rotor.I have not got any numbers yet,I did run it up and its gonna make the jet scoot,but battery was not nearly charged up,charging it up now.Stay tuned....Joe

I got a flight on it this afternoon,the wing did not fold.....It is not as fast as I hoped for but it flew well.A touch tail heavy,I went with a nano2100,going to use a regular 2200 as that is just a bit heavier.Try n get some video this weekend.Joe

Joe,

That is a unique looking plane! Remember when mounted like that your outlet is 100% FSA, and it really needs a thrust tube and possibly an inlet lip. I bet it would go well with the W3000 or W2700 as a pusher prop model.

FWIW, the WingJet is still being sold.
I ordered one last night from Airborne Models in CA (US distributor). $124.99

The redesigned kit addressed the wing issue. It also changed the servo mounting from vertical to horizontal, so it is easier to identify the two.
