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.
Lucky me, the winds just kept rising on each cycle.This last landing was nothing short of dumb luck, and plenty of power.
This was my first edf and it really went well.
The sound of those twins..oooh!
I'm a "fan" now!

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.
Pentium ESC and KA20-20L

KA22-20L and Pentium 30 ESC
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.

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.

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.
