Attached are some pictures of my new E-Bandit from the recent First in Flight jet event. This jet took me about 120 hours to build (had I been able to concentrate I could have probably done in 80, but I have 3 small kids that love to "help" when I am building). Detailed below are the specs of the jet:

Weight - 20lbs
Power - EVF 12s (puts out about 18lbs of thrust)
Batteries - 3 TP 4s 7700s
Gear - Electric "down and locked"
Receiver - AR12120 12-Channel DSMX X-Plus PowerSafe Receiver
Receiver battery - 2 Duralite LifePo 2100s
Flight Characteristics - fast and flys like a total dreamboat

Just did the test flights on my new A-10. Wow, I love this jet...it flew incredibly welll. Plenty of power..flew at 1/2 throttle most of the flights and it was still a bit too fast for scale. Lands like a trainer...full flaps and 1/4 throttle and it just greases in. Detailed below are the specs:

Weight - 32lbs
Power Plant - 2 TJ Dynamax conversions (128MM), flying on 12S each for a total of 24S
Batteries - 4 GensAce 6S 5300MAH
Flight time: 8+ minutes flying scale, 6 minutes aggressive flying
Gear - Down and Locked electric conversions of the original pneumatic system.
Gyro on nose wheel

Update - June 2013 - video of me flying my A10 at the recent First in Flight jet event. Wilson, NC USA.
