Was your EF a RTF edition? Because it is supposed that on the RTF edition everything is installed. Anyway i took the edition without tx/rx cause i wanted to install mine and i needed to buy a GWS elevon mixer.

Newbie help please. I have never done this before. Have a EF2000, put it together, plug everything in and the speed control blinks and beeps repeatedly no control and it sounds like a servo is activated trying to move. I have no idea. What am I doing wrong.

rgandy123,
It could be that the throttle channel needs reversing. Are you using the stock radio? If so, there is a switch for that. Do you get any movement on the elevons and rudder/front wheel when you move the sicks?
If not, check the connections at the receiver. If they look ok, disconnect evething but ch3 (throttle) check if you can get that to work. Then add one by one the servo connections. Maybe one servo is dead.

Hey, I got a replacement motor finally, and after flying my T-28 for a few months I think I'm almost ready to give this edf another go.
First, is this the only thread on this bird?? Not a lot of info.

What battery are you all using? I puffed the stock 1600 mah lipo on my maiden, I have a 2200 20c 3s, will that work? I don't want to wreck another motor, or I'm calling it quits for edf's!

You do not wreck motors because of the battery unless you decide to use higher voltage or cell 4S-5S.

I am using 2200mah 25C 3S lipo and it works great and I average 4min flight.

Any bigger and you will notice the jet will be alot more nose heavy then what it already is.

Either mechanical setup the elevons with some UP degree in them or program your trim for the elevons to be up. This jet is naturaly nose heavy as it is.

Unless you remove the LG you could be able to shoved the battery further back but in the stock configuration you will need to UP trim.

Motor and fan will determine the amp draw and the battery is just going to try to deliver it. The battery if using the correct cell count wil lnot smoke the motor.

You can find a lot more info in the other thread

As for battery, I used to use the stock and a 3s1300mAh. It keps the plane light. and the nose not too heavy.

Recenly, I removed the landing gear and upgraded the motor to a 4800Kv. ($15 at HobbyPattz) Since I can push the battery a lot further back (no LG wire in the way), I can use a light 3s2200 (150g-170g) It flies very, very nice.

I've noticed it on some of my other ESCs and don't know exactly what it is, but I always assumed it had something todo with nearing/reaching full throttle. That's just a guess
