Exceed F-18 Build.

Here is the new Exceed F-18 kit only no electronics included.
This is an amazing kit that I just started last night and completed today.
The components are good quality, the EDF rotor is somehow too thin so I decide to mix the housing and the HET 6904 rotor.
I am using an ARC 1 1/2 turn and Suppo 50A ESC, Spektrum 6000 and 5 cell battery. I ran the fan today once completed and installed on the airplane. I got as a result using 4 cell 2200MAH 300WTT/25.9A, then ran the same setup with 5 cell 2200MAH 657WTT/39A.

I'm glad to hear the HET rotor fits in the stock fan housing. I was going to use the stock housing and a HET rotor in another project. Nice looking bird. Any chance you can get some video?

Oh brother,
We maiden three of same yesterday and everything went well, this aircraft is the best in look and performance and one of my top notch so far.I may replace my power plant for HET 2-20W due to last more than 4 minutes in flight and to use 4 cell instead of 5 cell. Other than that is and awesome plane and we start doing formation flight on saturday and today. Joint if you can you'll love it.
