Guys.. anyone's interested in a 90mm EDF unit?
had it in my L-59 but I'm going High voltage..
it's a 3000watts 8s setup
Lander DPS multi-stator shroud
HET 700-68-1400kv motor 8MM shaft
CS12 good stiff blades

had around 20 flights so far
willing to separate motor if anyone wants that only..
already got someone who wants the shroud only but I prefer to give it as a whole thing

motor is 100 usd shipped
whole thing 145usd shipped WW and will also receive a set of extra blades.. of the good batch those too.. and adapter for 5mm

note that the shroud only coster 47+shipping from rclander directly..
motor is 129 +shipping
blades came from a complete edf unit soit's 45+shipping..
so I think 145 is a very good price.

Are you guys using Hysol to attach the horizontal stab?
Its a little disconcerting knowing that I will have to cut into this airplane when a servo goes bad..

Maybe I've been lucky, maybe I use good servos, but I've never had a servo go bad when used under normal operating conditions.

Hysol would work, or just use Epoxy. Either way, make sure to sand away the paint on your glue joint areas. I also poke some small holes in each surface to give the glue a little more *grab* power.

rUDDER sERVO


OR go back and modify it to your liking. I changed mine twice, so that means you should have a prettry good idea, on how to do it once, if you look at my pictures.

What are you guys using for white paint to touch up after glassing the wing joint?

So answering my own question. I went and got a couple rattle cans at the LHS to try. From my heli canopy painting days I knew that Pactra in Sprint White might be close so I tried it. I havent pulled the masking off yet but did hold the cutout from the nose gear close and its close enough for me. I take a pic later after pulling the masking off. I painted the wheel wells and center where I put the glass to join the panels. Reason for wheel wells is that I had to do some sculpting in there to get my struts to fit. Im using the RCL struts, slightly modified.

LOL. I have one of those and he knows everything I talk about too.

Before I went to the LHS I tried a couple cans that I have of white from Lowes/ Home Depot one of those being Rustoleum. Those colors looked more like cream compared to the white that was on my plane.

The Sprint White is looking pretty good. Will need a gloss clear over the top but looks pretty close.

Awesome HET. No wood blocks behind the flap hinge holes in the wing. This is the "NEW" kit. VERY agitating!
EJF, you guys have been great. But this HET product is really B.S. They are forgetting about some of the most crucial building points. Stuff that should be double checked before it leaves the factory. Really wanted to fly this in the rally.
OK, I feel better now.

Hi all

I've bounced through the majority of this thread, and would like to ask....did the fluttering elevator issue get fixed with the V2?

Curious....I've got my mind set on an XL in the near-future.

Thanks in advance

Im putting a new version together and several others are flying both versions with no trouble. I havent heard of any flutter with the new tail feathers. Somewhere back a few pages it was brought to light that MAYBE part of that problem was some guys flying way faster than it was really designed to do. Bottom line if your not a total speed demon Id say get it and have fun.
