Motor: Test 10mm inrunner designed by MCross

Pete, more info please.

My Alley Cat from plans by Racerx208
Wingspan: 12"
Weight: 36g
Lipo:130mah Atomic Cyclon 2 cell (130mAh Full Rivers if you just want to cruise around)
Motor: 10mm inrunner in a 22.5mm duct cut down from a GWS EDF30
Rx: Falcon
Servo: Falcon 1.6gr Aileron and elevator
Material: 2mm depron
I had to put 4 LEDs on it so I could see it better. Needs calm air to fly. Not real fast but lots of fun. Really easy to fly!

Great stuff guys! A few years ago it would have been hard to believe these little jets were possible, but here we are.

My SharpShooter:

WS 14"
AUW 4.9oz
Aileron, elevator, and throttle
1 & 3mm Depron and carbon rod construction
GWS EDF-40 with 5800kV Feigao inrunner
3S TP 730, Berg 4L w/Lightenna, CC-10, BMS-303 servos

Flew ok but slow (~35mph) due to restrictive inlets.

Bit of a dud here, my little Su-30. Inspired by a MiG-29 in the Nano Bandit thread.

WS 12.5"
AUW 4.7oz
Tailerons and throttle
3mm Depron and carbon rod construction
GWS EDF-40 with 5800kV Feigao inrunner
3S TP 730, Berg 4L w/Lightenna, CC-10, BA-3.6 servos

Never did fly well because of thrust line problems.

WS 12.7"
AUW 5oz
Aileron, elevator, and throttle
3mm Depron and carbon rod construction
GWS EDF-40 with 5800kV Feigao inrunner
