Awesome! That is one sweet EDF. I've always wanted to build something with Thrust Vectoring. Your concept looks to be simple yet very effective. Look forward to the plans. I'm currently building the Grumman F9F Panther from your thread, just printed the plans last night. Plan on building it this weekend and flying it next in the Golf Dome here in Columbus where the JR E-Fest was held . Now I need to order a second 40 sized EDF. Not a problem though I have three of the Feigo brushless motors that can be used in ducted fans that are just waiting to be put to use. Let's see F9F, F22, . . . need a third. LOL

Hi guys, thanks for the interest. I'm almost done with the plans and build guide and will post them here when the contest judging is over.

In the meantime here is a new video that came out a lot better than the last one. No more white speck, now it's gray!

One million dollars?

Seriously though, I can't build one for you - no time. Thanks for the interest and I hope you can find some way to get one airborne.

Maybe you can ask one of these guys or try it on your own. I wrote a really long assembly guide that makes perfect sense to me so it should be easy.
