The best run that I could get a reading from was 46.9mph.

I just got done making up 4 2S 300 NanoTech's, and you want me to change them to 4S?? I think I'll wait and see what speed mine is making on the 2S.. Heck I don't even fly it wide open as it's already to fast for my brain to handle. I'll let you younger guys go after the high speed records.. I'll go after the how slow will it go ones...

"GP 30mm EDF Micro F-86 Sabre on 3S
Here's the raw video "

But he has been known to be wrong before...


I thought I had a speed program on this computer but can't find it now...

Found it,,, it says mine had a top speed of 48.3mph at 4:47 in that video of #2 maiden flight.. And I wasn't even trying to set up a Doppler pass.. And this was a stock plane with the stock 250 battery...

So you had 48.3mph on 2 cell. That is why I am wondering if NC was on 2 cell because he was 46.9mph, or 1.4mph slower than yours........

Seems like the stock Sabre is in that mid 40mph range on 2s just by guesstimation.

I feel the little 180mAh lipo wasn't up to the task as it came down pretty hot. I'll try a 240 3S next time out.

Livonia I doubt u would get it off the ground without smoking it. lol

What size cf rod are you guys using on this thing? I haven't got to fly mine yet due to winds and would like to have it beefed up before I try since this is my first EDF.

Use 1 mm or .8 CF rod to stiffen up control surfaces.


Bob


I highly doubt yours was going over 40 MPH stock, BUT I could be wrong.

I should post vids of mine perhaps and maybe someone would be kind enough to Doppler as I don't have the software and my comp is a POS anyways

I was surprised also, ran the test twice and same numbers. But the time on the speed test and time on the video don't match up.. I can't watch the video at the same time as the test so I'm not sure what's going on.. Next time I fly it I'll do some good speed test passes so we can see what it's really doing.. But like I have said it's more than fast enough for me, I would even trade some high speed for more vertical climb..

I'd like more Vertical as well; gain altitude faster without draining lipo to fast!
