B-777

Eflite airliner w/2x Dons wicked4000kv and 2x pentium 60a esc.3a ubec.
Maiden videos shot at a huge field with long runway.Found the motors more than powerful enough to use a much shorter (and closer) field.
Shot with a bushnell speedsterII at 70mph.
Not bad for a flying cantalope .

4 flights here.2 on tired old 25c and 2 on new but broke in 30c.You can see and HEAR the difference.


Boeing777 R/C Maiden Flights (9 min 28 sec)



Lucky me, the winds just kept rising on each cycle.This last landing was nothing short of dumb luck, and plenty of power.




Boeing 777 RC Extreme Crosswind Landing (0 min 42 sec)


This was my first edf and it really went well.
The sound of those twins..oooh!
I'm a "fan" now!
Thanks Don!

I think most, if not all of my planes, have, or have had something from The Don in them.

The Don has great products and prices and always stands by his products.

Okay, so not quite all of my planes, but a lot of them have been Don-afied. I am very happy with everything I've purchased from The Don. I'm sure I'll head back for more.

Yes, that would be my living room. The carpet is aging quite well.

Those other, slightly more scenic photos were taken in Vineyard, Utah. I grew up in the area and my folks still have some land down there. It's really nice in the winter because there are a lot of nice fields to land with the ski's. There's also a sod farm close that the owner lets us fly on on Saturdays all year round.

Sky Fun

Don's Wicked 2700

Wicked 2700 KV------------------$25
2.4 oz (69 g)

LiPo 3S 6x4 APC 33a-- 31 oz thrust 21,000 RPM-- 80 mph pitch speed
6 x 4.5 36a--28.5 20,500 RPM-- 87 mph (EST)

(my test) 6 X 5.5 39a--28.5 19,000 RPM-- 90 mph
(paddle blade CF & low C lipo)

Pentium 40 ESC----------$40
3a (switching) BEC

1.2 oz (33 g)
Shaft size .125 inch

Total wt = 3.6 oz

Aircraft wt. w/3S 2200 mah LiPo = 24 oz

It was necessary to reverse the factory motor mount to use the Don's Wicked 2700 motor, as I could not reverse the propellor shaft.
This required drilling a new mounting hole and tapping it.

Here's my jet fleet. ...so far.

Art Tech F-18 w/4800kv - 40amp esc - 2200 3s
Really makes it cook.
Waiting for the stock fan unit to blow apart.

Alfa F-86 w/5400kv - 50amp esc - 2200 3s - Alfa 5 blade
Just stupid fast.
Wish I knew how fast I was really going.
With stock intake/exhauast tubes, what are most guys getting? mph wise?
