Is there a list for recommended setup for the f86? I am digging/searching this thread and cant seem to find anything. I will probably go my usual for the dr/expo but am open to suggestions. Still (very impatiently ) waiting for my sabre! Where are you guys getting this twin mig-29???

If you want to add your own servos, esc's and rx you can get it here http://www.toysonics.com/mig-29-nano...ess-motor.html.

Or, buy it rx ready at http://www.bananahobby.com/2221.html

In either case you'll need to supply your own battery and charger.

HK also has them.

Don't have the exact throws, but I fly it on lower rates with a bit of expo, much easier to fly that way. Still rolls quickly at top speed.

I do not know if I got a bad batch or not but my F-15 would hardly fly whether I was using the 3 or 5 blade setup on 3s, so I said the heck with it, pulled the motor out of my HK T-6 and made it a pusher. Hopefully that helps. it seems to have 100% more go..

Wow sucks yours does not fly well stock.

Mine now officially has more flights than all my other EDF's combined. She's just so conveint to take along and mine flies so well I don't mind flying it in a small park.

Though mine is not stock, replaced the ESC's with some cheap TowerPro 12a's after one of the stock ESC's burned on me from my pre-maiden checks! I was on the 3-bladed fans and worked well in a bench test, thank goodness I did a pre-flight check.

I did all that and thinkI just had weak first run of motors. If the wind ever quits I will go see how it does as a pusher. It has a ton of thrust now lol

for the PNP Mig15, does the orange r415 rx work without modification with the servo wiring or there an issue with polarity?

The F-86 is one of the easier jets to maiden. Go with the recommended CG. may need some weight in the nose with a small battery. I did without the dead weight by using a big battery (Rhino 2S 620 mah).

no issues with polarity. It's a direct plug in.

Searching for replacement motor...


Hi guys,

today I had a bad crash. I think it was a rx-failure. The jet did not react to any steering commands....impact on the street

Only the nose was broken. I can repair it easily. But the motor seems to be busted. I think the shaft is curved maybe some bearings are damaged too.

Where can I buy a replacement motor or a motor that fits into the jet? I did not find one on hobbyking
Any tips?

Regards,
Michael

Now you've found the rub........

You can buy the fans, it's the motor that seems to be the trick. There one place in Australia that sells just the motor for the insane price of $30 plus shipping. You're better off buying a new airframe that comes with the fan and motor, you're way ahead in the long run.

Hi,

I found the shop in australia...but this price is out of the question. I disassembled the motor and realigned the shaft. The hawk flies well but not with as much power as before. It's ok for now but I'm going to find an alternative to the stock motor....

On eBay Germany I found one. Does somebody know this edf unit?

Oh yeah....... AEORC fans. They sound great, but are amp hogs. I use them in various sizes when I have an ample lipo bay to compliment it.

I'm still a beginner in flying rc-planes....Because of this my here comes my next stupid question Can I use this edf in the nano hawk with 2S lipo and stock esc or do I have to change the components in the jet?

And is the quality of the AEORC edfs acceptable?

You'll have to change the ESC and the lipo. That fan will draw around 20amps, so the stock ESC and lipo won't cut it. You would need a 20A esc and a lipo probably around a 2s 450 mAh 65C lipo. Flight times would be incredibly short, you would need multiple packs to get long flight time. It might work ok if you aren't after lots of speed. Full thottle will drain the packs fast!

They are the middle of the road. Not high end quality, but they don't need to be at the speeds we spin them. I've used the 8 blade fan in several different airframes that can carry the appropriate lipos, I'm satisfied. The 8 blade fans are not the most effecient, but they do serve a purpose...... higher blade counts move a good volume of air and create a great whooshing sound that's more like a turbine than a destist drill.

If you are thinking about the 35mm aeorc, You will need a larger esc. I had the 35mm aeorc running in one of my nano f18's it burned out an exceed 12a esc so the stock 6a won't cut it.

I ended up cutting 4 of the 8 blades and used a stripped 20a esc.



Though it did fly great! Set timer to 1:30-2:00 for a 2s 500mah though. Only 1min at wot

I had a YouTube video of it, but since I didn't have a camera person and it was just a few passes on a fixed camera, I pulled the clip, it was pretty quick though.
