No overheating habits there. Its the best 10amp bec out there. Dont worry qbout that bec. It will not let u down. As I said you got one thing less to worry about.

I also use it in a plane with 8 micro metal gear high torque servos + 3 full metal up to 7.5kg electric retracts and its closed in the plane with minimal airflow. No probs no overheating, nothing at all. Just a tad warm and thats normal.

Pavlis nice flying - it looks like the F22 can fly very slowly for an EDF.

I am also looking into this jet. However I can only found this from BH. Regarding how they deal with their customers, I wonder if there is another online shop I can purchase from?

I am planning to use the CS 12 blade Fan on the F22. So I would like to know if anyone have tried to install it and if it is a direct drop in or it need sort of modification?

I've been on the fence with this plane, and Pavlis, you've pushed me over!

Thanks for the video! I love it when "fast" planes can also go slow!

I got mine from bh an had no issues at all. Also mine shipped here in europe.
The cs12 will fit no problems. Just make sure u use a proper motor and also enlarge the battery compartment.

Thank you for your advice. I think I will get the CP IR550 2800kv motor for the CS fan with a 4S 2650 nanotech 35 battery.

A 3300mah will be more suitable. Oh and rhe notor you mentioned.. It is a great motor but there are other more lightweight... Try to build it light.

Thanks again. I am looking to some inrunner as they are more efficient and well balanced. Got a Turnigy 2855-2800kv on my hawk but I am not very satisfied with the quality so looking something better. Any suggestion for a 4S setup?

Quick Question for the experts


Just curious which holes on the servo horn are for the elevator and aileron. The instructions are very vague and the pictures are terrible. I plan on using the stock two servo system with the gyro. Any help would be great. If it matters it's a V3..Thanks guys! Brad

I have attached the instructions I picked up earlier in this thread for hooking up the ailerons and elevators. Later today I will take some better photos of the linkages and post them.
