If I had to do it all over, I would have first built the plane and placed all electronics and battery. Then I would have places the motor and cut the hole to get the proper cg. I'm not at my base computer so I cannot pos pics right now, but I have posted pics and video earlier in this thread. Also check out my page -- I think I have videos of both in action. Feel free to ask any questions -- I'll do my best to answer!!!
Went on your Blog. What a great idea, one basic frame, 3 different power platforms. For those that haven't gone there, do yourself a favor. Also like the Fuselage build up instead of the profile version.

Have too many projects hanging but suspect priority about to change.

Wrong power plant

Have just put my TomHe 100% F22 into the air for the first time... in fact first RC I have made or flown. Apart from crumpled nose, no real smashes. Problem is I think the power plant is wrong. Just cant get the speed to level off. Any sugestions?

1450Kv brushless outrunner
6x5.5 prop
1100Mah or 1600Mah 3s LiPo
Only elevon control
410gram flying weight

Also can someone point me to a calculator or site where I can more accurately choose the correct gear for this F22 and future EDF planes.

Love this F22, so forgiving even when flown by a first time noob. Thanks Tom if your around.

This is a decent motor calculator that's free.

The BEST site for info on this plane is right here in this thread! What? You don't want to go back and read 2179 previous posts? Okay, here is what you need: get a 2212-06 motor with the 6X4 prop and you'll be good to go!

Boy did I make a fine mod on the f22. Instead of having the jagged cut on the ele,I added a piece straight across and man you ought to see what it can do because of the extra tail area. I kicked up the ele on low rate and full power and it just spun like a top on on axis abt 15 times before I knew what was happening.
I know some guys like to keep it to look like an f22. You can do more at reduced throttle.
This plane did not have a Grayson motor on it either. I used a speed 400 from heuprc

I still believe that the F22 flies better than most other similar pusher jets out there.

I just put my Mig-29 back in service and it is much more lightly built.
It does those TIGHT loops too. But my rates are set to LUDICROUS !

My F-15 has had the FAN removed and pusher installed.
It's a nice flier but not like the F-22 or the Mig !

I agree with you on the f22 as being the best 6mm rc pusher plane out there.
Next weeks flying i will try the same manouver with the rates set on high which are abt 90 deg up. That ought to be fun

6mm makes good stuff.

I just made mine from Tomhe's plans here in the groups.
Or from eliworm or chara, et al :-)

The F-22 seems to have just the right PLANFORM, IMHO !

Birth, life & death of a tomhe F22

First: a BIG thanks to tomhe for his great design! May I show you the lifecycle of my first one (also first scratchbuild for me) ? Most of the flights I had a cam "taped" on the plane, sometimes even a gps-logger. On this one I did only small modifications: a 2mm balsa-sheet as a reinforcement (the material I used is a little bit softer than real depron). Motor is a 37 g 2600 kV.
