It's a glider. It says it right there on the page. It would be possible, but would need heavy modding.

Hollowing out the fuse and trying to put a fan in there will be a pain!

I'm waiting for the rest of the J-Power 35mm jets...

Now that could be a speed demon built with a pusher prop. Wouldn't even try it as a ducted fan. a decent kV motor out back with an apc 4.1x4.1 and I'll bet it would be well over 100 mph. for that small of a plane, it would be a blur.

Take a band saw and cut it down the middle after removing the tail feathers. Scoop out the ducting, plop in a 30 or 35mm fan, make a place for the battery reciver and servos and then glue it back together. Done

Looks like it would be fast.

The JetPower price was 10 euros...Including VAT...If you did have to hollow it out it really wouldn't be that difficult...Like another guy said---Saw it in half...Then, using a soldering gun with a 12 guage copper wire bent to shape, remove the foam like a hot knife through butter...After making the rough cuts, finish out the insides with a Dremel and various sand paper backed dowels...You could do it easily in under an hour...

Can you order direct from the manufacturer???

Vogelsang doesn't carry the mini viperjet, so i'm going to inquire direct to the manu. and see how much one would be shipped over.

So you can order them direct from Tomahawk in Germany. they run about $18/ea since we dont have VAT. Shipping for 1 up to 25 is another 29euro.

I'm planning to order 2 of them, is anyone else interested in putting in an order for a few and splitting on the shipping cost over here? I've got no problems having them all come to me and dispatch them off to everyone else.
