I think use one unit will cost less!

The multi EDF better to be mounted at out side on the wing.

Mr. Lin...
If there aren't going to be twin edf units, then there should be a edf-55 or something more powerful

Yup. The only U2 plans I've ever seen called for a 90mm carbon fan.

They'll use one of their bigger ones, I'm sure.

GWS U2 will be considered to use an EDF75.

GWS F80 will also use a single EDF75.

OK?

Mr Lin.Does this mean that there is an F-80 in the works?Somewhere down the road?I realize that since there's been no mention of one yet,it would probably be next year sometime,but,that would fall right in line with my slowly advancing skills.The Warbirds I have now I'm having fun with and soon winter will be here,so skis go on the trusty Piper and Beaver.A late spring/summer release of ducted jets would be nice.

If you fly EDFJet, two things that will make your
EDF jet really sings in the air: Lipo packs and Brushless.

So it would be smart to have Single EDF Jets to
use Lipo + brushless to minimize the weight and
the cost as possible.
Any twin EDF jet would be very nice indeed but the
twice the cost will make flyers think twice before
spending on the Twin EDF jet while wondering
if this jet is going to fly well in the air.

So any single EDF jet like F 16, Mig 21, Mig 19,
Mirage 2000, gripen will probably be good for
many many flyers out there. I love the A10 but
the cost of 2 ESC, 2 brushless motor, lipos just
simply prevent me to get one.

I agree with GWS4CEO and RC Guy.

A single fan unit, is preferable whenever possible. Much easier to upgrade one brushless motor and speed control than two. Many models can be adapted to single fan including Twin Turbine aircraft like the phantom, F-15, etc.

I'm still pulling big time for the A-4 Skyhawk.

The A-4 is an excellent platform for this because the arangment of the scoops and the fusalage shape combined with the wing area make a very scale-like model that still flies well.

That, and the large fans have room for big brushless motors.

My vote went to A-4 as well.

I would buy a U-2. Just make the wings removeable.
