Kyosho Old School T33A - Update!


So I now have about 18-20 flights on the Kyosho T33A 48" ws that I got a few years ago from a member here. My set up is as follows:

Stock 75mm fan (minus spinner)
Balanced rotor
Mega 16/15/3
CC PH 60
4S 3300mah 20C - 30C
AUW 39.5 oz

Reading earlier discussions on RCG regarding this exact setup, I was under the impression that the stock fan would explode at around ~500 watts. Maybe I'm just lucky so far because when I ran the numbers tonight on my watt meter I got the following on a fresh pack:

53A
753 watts

After 10 seconds.....Settled to:

47A
715 watts

The Mega is only rated at a max of 35a, (I think?). I rarely use full throttle not even during hand launch so maybe it will last. I estimate the top speed is in the mid 70's, maybe a bit faster if I do a fast pass early in the flight.

This is one of the best flying models I have ever flown. It tracks so good and is very predictable. Landing is easy too, it slows down nice.

I am running similar set-up but running the Mega 16/15/2 with a Thunderbird 54. I am getting almost 700 watts with my set-up on a 3S 2200 45C! She has hit 100 MPH on a radar gun and doopler! My T-33 has retracts so take off and landings are pretty easy! I agree with you...one of the best EDF's around! How are you fitting the large 4S in there?
