Getting Ready of SEFF

Trying to finish the F-18 and the ME262. Both should maiden this weekend. The F-18, although the pictures don't show it because the rear fuse is covered in light spackle prior to sanding... is coming out really good. Should have an AUW of 20 - 22 oz. it was at 19 prior to paint and installation of servo extensions. The fan unit is a 70mm from BP hobbies and I cant remember the name, but it's designation is DF70.. it kicks butt. Its run by a Mega 16/15/3 and should come close to putting out 23 oz. of thrust on a 4S 1800 Hyperion 20C pack. Static testing is awesome...well beyond my expectations.

The 262 is powered by 2 GWS brushless inrunners,... I believe they are the 3100 kv inrunners that I found on E-Bay. It also runs on a 4S 1800 pack and estimates that each nacelle is putting out close to 2lbs of thrust... I don't believe it, but people who have been doing this much longer than me tell me it's true. Here's a few pics of each.

See ya'll at SEFF... I'll be with Vyceroy, Hippo, and others in an RV with a sign on it that says "In a Van Down by The River".
