Since the stock motor in the F-35 is 29mm, I figured that the 32mm FMS 2000kv motor wouldn't be all that much of a difference in weight but a big increase in thrust! Looks like I was right! The plane is a blast to fly! Much more grunt with weight and flight times nearly identical to stock! it is still a work in progress but a huge success thus far! take a look...

This is what I did to help keep the servo connection in place on this plane. It has worked really well thus far and now I am not worried about adding the new Platinum FMS 80mm 2100kv set up. take a look and hope it helps!

A couple flights with my Eflite 80mm F-4... one with badly balanced fan and then the others with the fan balanced at the field. I still think it could be a little better but this will do for now...turned out that the adapter was loose on the shaft and would make a horrible racket. once that was fixed and loctited things worked great! I think that it can get better with some more tlc though...

I made some changes to this bird after its initial 2 flights. While it flew amazing with the stock set up, there was a lot of buzzing coming from the fan. Once I got it out of the plane it made sense why. The screw that holds the rotor in place was loose..... NOT GOOD!! Its ok though because I already had plans to replace it anyway. I have had an FMS 2100kv set up sitting for a while waiting for a good home. The light weight of this plane would be a great fit!!! So after some balancing of the fan, it was put into the bird. I also fitted my afterburner set up and am pretty impressed with how it came out! I got some flights over the weekend and it blew me away with a vertical climb up and almost out of site right from take off!! Here are some pix I got and will post the videos once they upload...

Here are some flights from over the last couple weeks. I did some buddy boxing with some younger RC pilots and also did a maiden for someone at my club. Its always fun to help out others! Gotta do what is required to get as many people hooked to this hobby as possible!
