F-16 EDF Guillow's static display model in flight

Here's an old video that got dropped with the creation of the new video gallery. I thought people might still enjoy it.

This is a Guillow's static display model converted to 40mm EDF. In this video it has been fitted with a Medusa 12mm brushless. 380 3S li-po. Five minute flights.

Cool little launcher you have there. And the plane is nice, too.

Thanks. It's necessary since it doesn't have retractable landing gear like the plane in your avatar!

I don't have any plans. You should be able to see how I did it from the photos. I've added legs and a foot operated trigger to it now so it operates off the ground.

Maybe I should start a thread.

How about...

something like a cross-bow?

I think a cross bow design would have too violent of an acceleration spike. This thing is bad enough as it is.

I got another good laugh out of rfg06's avatar. It has to be my favorite.

Lance I am about to start flying a Guilows F-15 running 2 30mm fans in the next several weeks; could you direct me to some pictures of your launcher?

There are some photos on post #43:

It has been since converted to a ground launcher. The launches are more consistant but I do miss the extra five feet of altitude of the hand held version.
