Everyone loves a centreburner on their EDF and noticed this new range for sale whilst window shopping on RC Castle.

I have no affiliation with the retailer, but it's a store i like very much due to the regional availability of products which are prohibitively expensive to ship from the USA.

The variant I purchased is for the FMS 80mm inrunner, which has an outer diameter of 32mm. The cost was $51AUD ($35USD) plus shipping.

Twin EDF kits run at ~$45USD for inrunners (more expensive due to the mounting solution I assume) and sub $40USD for a twin outrunner setup. For comparison, popular units available from community members are in the vicinity of $50USD (~$75AUD) plus shipping for a single burner kit.

By way of background, I have used RGB led ring-style ABs (which RC Castle also appear to offer under the Cyclone Power brand), purchased units from the community members referenced above, and have DIY'd one based on PeterVRC's wonderful guide here.

Product overview from the page:

- Easy to Install & Set Up.
- Suitable For FMS & E-flite 80mm EDF With Inrunner Motor .
- Suitable For Other 80mm EDF with 32mm Diameter Inrunner Motor.
- With Start Engine Ignition Effect.

- With 3s , 4s & 6s Battery Balance Plug To JST Plug Include.

I flew a few yrs ago outside with landing gear removed for maximum speed. Now I’d like to fly in the gym much slower. I made fixed non moveable flaps for the UMX Radian so I will be doing the same for the Aero C (AC).

I used cardboard and tape for the prototype flaps. After experimenting with fixed angles I will finalize by removing the temporary cardboard flaps and cutting the flaps into the wing. They will be hinged and be locked up for outdoor fast flying and locked down for inside slow flying.

z51 predator ( Just a little Chuck Testing for CG ) (0 min 56 sec)

What came in the mail = One z51 Predator ..
Thrust controlled ..

I have never tried a thrust control plane before .. And so far the z51 has not impressed .

A) Mine seems terribly nose heavy , hunts the ground out of the box hard .
B) To stop it nose diving I had to adjust the V-tail assembly for some up elevator
C) Also had to put a little lead shot in the rear
D) This one has built in right turn ( Warped wings perhaps )
E) Lots of Chuck testing .

Anyways .... Took it out to the street to see how much power was needed to lift it off the ground . Just about all there was .

Apparently the way to tune the z51 is by bending / twisting the fuselage ( Anyhow )
Maybe tomorrow morning ?
