ReVolt Rush (Full Composite 90mm 5lbs auw)


I have been working on a new jet design called the Rush. It is designed to fit a 90mm fan. This jet is different than other jet. I am in the process of molding the fuse, with wing and horizontal stab mold complete.

I am very much looking forward to finishing my project and can't wait to maiden it. I am thinking 3.5kw 8S if I can find a suitable motor. (?) I am planning to have the fan very close to the intakes so the blades will be visible when looking from the front. The intakes are tucked in close so power off gliding may be improved, to be determined. But for now I am having a blast molding my jet. I love molds, as they will give me my plane back after a crash, plus you I mean can change materials and layups. So a crash or super low pass turned cartwheel is a celebrated event for me as then I get to spray paint into the mold and pull out my own arf of my own design. Its a Rush!

I had the thought of using and airplane colet and making a fan that mated with it like a prop mates with it. If it had the hole right I think it would work balanced. Not a project I am doing anything with but pondering at the moment. Cheers!

The fan that Pete grenaded at 60k+ was a HET 6904. Its a good fan, it might have come off its colet or maybe it should have been broken in better. Sounded loud. We flew one before and it woorked out fine, other than not enough rates on the elevator for how forward I set the CG. Or the battery may have shifted. I think there is a video of that flight, here.
