We do not have that at his moment.

In the USA, I think GWS USA or dealer does have the BL motors.

For flyers can not find or get the motors, we will try to help.

As to the model- NPS, you will also get the impellers and the housings of the ducted fans.

With GWS Inrunner, it flies like a rocket. The video does not reflect how fast this Turbo was going. It really meant to rock the sky.

Working on this, I think early birds will be able to get this soon. I mean for real "Early" Birds.

EDIT - From the other Me-262 thread:
I asked for clarification in that thread, here's the numbers

From Mr. Lin



The test shot Me262 with fully equipped weight 816g ( white un-panited as test flown, with 3S2P GWS1300mAh Li-Po pack ), so may be 850g after painted.

GWS262 euipped with twin EDF64 with GWS BL 3900KV motor. Current rating measured 26A, got 630g thrust at 27500RPM. After 3 minites, the thrust drop down to 550g.

When tested GWS Me262 in lab with power supply:
7.4V 12.1A 269g 3.004g/W
11.1V 21.6A 556g 2.31g/W
14.8V 31.8A 830g 1.76g/W

If you cut EDF blades to be 3, less current at 14.8V only 27A, yet you get 753g. 1.884g/W!

I joined the Early bird program last month. I want to get two (2) NPS versions. I am in Malaysia. How much is the p & H.

Can I buy the two brushless motors from you (005A, 3900KV inrunners) at the same time?

Thanks.

chewy, the way this generally works is that Joyce sends an email message to all early bird members when they are ready to take early bird orders. That message will have pricing and S&H information. You'll respond to that email to make your order.

*Generally* you can't combine an earlybird order with anything else- not even another early bird order, so your two models would be processed seperately- but there is talk of doing something special to get us the motors this time. We'll have to wait and see what Mr Lin decides to do.

Yes, exactly my point. I wish it were smaller.

A10-EDF55
Length : 872 mm (34.3 in.)
Wing Span : 968 mm (38.1 in)
Wing Area : 13.95 dmē (216 sq.in)
Flying Weight : 470~520 g (16.6~18.3 oz)

As I said in other threads, I worry that GWS is building kits too large now. Many municipalities and communities have size and weight restrictions on flying electric model aircraft in local parks. If you want larger you need to be way outside of the city, or be part of expensive clubs.

David,

I agree with the point about keeping the planes a bit smaller, but for me it's because of how small my car is.

Yes, there's that too. I have a larger truck so that's not an issue. But I don't have a very large building space. And an even smaller storage space for them when they're not flying. Even with wings removed, big models take up a lot of room in the house I just don't have.

I would take the quoted A10 weight of 520 grams with a grain of salt, that was maybe for an EDF50 model with no glue Most ppl fly A10's around 650 plus grams on the brushed setup...

Australian GWS ME262's

I will have the ME262 in stock in Australia as soon as it is ready, and will have a few motor options in stock to go with it including the GWBLM005A motors, and spacer rings to fit the motors correctly to the EDF64 housing.

Quite a few of my customers with the EDF64 conversion in their SU27 Flankers will be able to use their power systems in this kit immediately. Should be a great new addition to the EDF lineup!

I agree David, I also fear GWS models are growing too large.


Many of us choose GWS because it doesn't take a HUGE expensive Lipo, or HUGE expensive motors to fly them. With the bigger size... many of us will be forced to spend too much money (that we don't have) on getting larger RC electronics.

It will be a shame the day we can't transfer our electronics from a GWS Beaver to a newer GWS model that is too large.

Dear all,

For Early Birds, our staff is getting try to fit parts in a box and measure the weight. Once we have the info on hand. We will be able to know the shipping cost. We will be able to take order. Only for experienced flyers. The early bird kit does not come with manual & decal. I can try to ask them to put the decal for ME-109 in side the kit.

put some color scheme info here FYI.

Welcome to share yours

Ray
