Fly Fly F-22 Raptor

NOTE: This thread was originally titled "Big foam F-22" and later retitled to avoid confusion with other models.

I just noticed a new 45'' wingspan F-22 EDF for 92mm fan at tony-hobby.com. It looks pretty good, does anyone know anything about it?

Never even heard about it. You'll have to do a build thread.

Looks nice - but $225.00?

Did anyone notice the video is a Mirage

The other thing that just cracks me up is the write up text... items like this:

Assembly the F-22 is quite a easy job. All of the parts formed with precise aluminium mold. It just 1-2 hours assembly work and the F-22 can fly.
I dunno, maybe I had a bad day.

I agree on both points. Maybe someone else will pick up the torch here.

Rainy day in Hampshire, UK so I built my F22 today. I'm not keen on Styrofoam as a rule but I was tempted because its bigger than your typical EDF. Simple to put together because of the interlocking parts. I'm waiting for the retracts. No way am I flying something at high speed with fixed landing gear. Just wouldn't look right.

...and regarding the estimated build time LOL. You dont even get step by step instructions. Just a plan view of how the pieces go together in one picture. It's honestly not that hard though. I did it in a day between various other jobs. One important mod I made was to make the top rear decking detachable. Is supposed to be glued in but I wanted access to the fan/motor if required. Front of deck is already designed to interlock with front decking. I added blind nut and bolt at rear. If anyone wants pictures of internals let me know and I'll add to this post.



Wingspan: 1150mm
Length: 1300mm
Fan: 92mm
Motor: 1800kv (B36-50S)
Battery: 5S3700
ESC: 80A Hyperion OPTO
Servo: 2 micro 8g (elevons, no ailerons or rudder)

8g servos are big enough for something like that?
