Banana Hobby T-33
I got this jet a few months back and had a very unfortunate maiden. It flew, but two servos died in the process. It made a hard landing and I let it sit ever since.
Recently I've been kicking around the idea of buying an EDF so I pulled this down and replaced all the servos with Hitec HS-55s. Turns out it's a really great plane, even at half throttle it remains very stable.
It flew well enough that it impressed two friends, one who shot the video and the other a regular flying buddy who isn't a fan of EDFs at all.
If you keep in mind that Banana Hobby sells this thing for about $85 PNP, it's a great first EDF.
It's worth mentioning that flight times are short. I've yet to get more than about 4:25 out of a 950maH battery. I'm going to try a 1300 next time and see if the extra weight is worth the trade off in flight time.
