Another Foamie sporting one of Don's 40A ESC. A 40A ESC that runs on 4s with no need for an external BEC for how much?!?!!
You sold me on these Don!

Hobby Lobby/Starmax HE-162 Jet
Upgraded with Don's Power system. Look for a review here on RC Groups!

Here is my Alpha A-4 (before I crashed it) powered by a Don's 4800 motor, Pentium 40 esc and Alpha 5 bladed rotor. As far as I know, she was the fastest Alpha A-4 back then, clocked while flying straight and level at exactly 120 mph w/ radar.

"My First EDF"
Phase 3, F-16:
Loong Max, 4s, 2250 mAh
Heard too many stories of failed hand launches, for my first EDF. So I gave it "some" power,...and a rudder,... and reinforcing, (thanks to RCG). Still made DIY gear.
Love those runway takeoffs and landings. Crashed and rebuilt many times.
Pretty fast for little investment (105+). Gonna build another just like it when I have time. Great "Sunday Flyer"

PS. Thanks Don. She is so much FUN!!!

Some Wickedness for your HK-450 Heli - Wicked 4000Kv
Ordered the Wicked 4000Kv from Don a couple of weeks ago for an EDF model plane (as an upgrade), but plans changed since the motor I originally intended to use for my HK-450 (a T-Rex clone) was way too weak (it was an E-flite BL400 3500Kv brushless outrunner). Since 4000Kv was still in range for this 450-sized heli, I decided to swap out the E-flite for the Wicked 4000Kv, which was a GREAT move.
This motor is perfect for a 450-sized heli, has LOTS of power and spins up the rotor beautifully on low timing and medium spool-up/motor start rates. Very impressed by the performance of this motor in my heli, and would recommend this motor for anyone looking to beef up their 450 for 3D performance.
Here are the specs for my particular HK-450 heli...
Motor: Wicked 4000Kv w/11T pinion
ESC: Castle Creations Phoenix 35-Amp
Servos: HXT-900 for CCPM 120, Futaba S3114 for tail servo
Battery: LiPo 3S 2200mAh 25C/50C
Some photos of the HK-450 with the Wicked 4000Kv motor and a fe

Thought i would show some apreciation to Don.
One of my Wicked powered EDF's. Art Tech Su-27 with modified intakes and full flying elevators. Wicked 4800 motors with CC Phoenix 35 ESC's running on a pair of 2200 3s lipos at 650~700 watts. Straight line speed is nothing special due to the slightly draggy airframe but climbing power is awesome.
Also have a Kyosho F-4 running a Wicked Extreme 5400 on 3s, upgradeing to 4s shortly.

Wicked powered JPower AMX Fighter Jet
Stock EDF fan and 5 blade rotor
Rhino 4s 25C 2350Mah lipo
Corona 6ch RP6D1 Synthesized Rx w/ Dons RC micro antenna
Dons RC 60A ESC
Dons RC Wicked 4000Kv EDF motor
(2) Corona DS-929MG Digital servos for the ailerons
(2) SG90 9gm servos for the elevator
Static testing 42A / ~600 watts
It should scoot and it has alot of thrust.

Most are Wicked 4800 on good 4S, a few are Wicked 5400 on 3S, using Pentium 60 and 40 esc's. MPH range 85-135. Watts 400-900. I love the 4800 on 4s using the Wattage 3 blade power fan(Gaui Delta).

I have many flights on the stock Phase3 EF-16...and I love it. The one powered by Don's Coolwind 4000kv, a 3 blade Eflite SF fan and a 4s pack is in a completely different league though. Its extremely fast (~100mph) has brutal vertical (unlimited or damned near)...yet still light enough to enjoy! The perfect setup for this plane, IMO.
