I see your point if you don't have any of those materials BUT if you do ...I just consider them a must have .

What kind of speeds are you guys getting with these JetFans on 6s you think? I love flying my Habu on 8s and just not sure how much I would like to fly this bird on 6s and it seems like 8s packs really don't want to squeeze in the F-4. lol

Anyone have a spare cockpit floor they would part with? (to mount pilot figures)? Mine got tossed by the wife accidentally...

Sounds about right. I think in the F-4, you might see a few knots less with the draggier airframe, but I bet its not that noticeable!

Hi Oryon, I have a spare cockpit insert which I had already cut to fit. PM me your address and I'll ship it to you.

What are my options do you reckon?
That is the motor I use in the 8s setup with the Midifan PRO rotor in the Habu's, good for 2700w/3.7kg thrust and 150 odd mph. Can also use the Jetfan rotor, few amps more but very close to the wemo, no problem to send you out either Wemo rotor/adapter set or Jetfan, have both in stock.

Het, I believe 2050 kv but don't remember for sure. I did have to open the thrust tube slightly with the jetfan in the habu, I have an F4 on the way so I will put that power system in there and see how it goes but might have to open the bifurcated thrust tube.

I was thinking the same setup in the F4 as well. Guess I better get one on the way.

Where is the best place to get JetFan 80mm and Motor from?

F-4 Onboard Video


All,

I've been having a blast flying my little F-4 for several months now with the stock fan on 6s 5000 mAh packs and wanted to share a few photos as well as some onboard video. I put a ion AirPro camera on the engine bay cover and flew it this morning at the field. Perfect cool morning and no wind! Hope you like the video. Thinking about putting the camera under one of the wings next time, might be better. Anyway hope you all are having fun with your jet.

F 4 Flight (5 min 9 sec)

He will hook you up on jetfan.

I'm using an Arc motor 2080kv 6s in my F4 and HET 1680kv in my Habu 32

But others are using HET motors

Hope this helps.

Hey guys, after flying my Phantom stock, I decided to upgrade with a mega motor that Efflux RC has as the "habu 32 hop up motor."

http://www.effluxrc.com/Habu-32-8s-h...6-40-15SEC.htm

Im still using the eflite fan and motor without any mods. I like the more power authority off the ground as well as vertical flight envelope is better. I dont always have access to a pavement runway so grass takeoffs is where I mainly fly at and it struggles with my stock setup. My first flight was using 2 x 3300 4s packs I'll try 4000mah next. So far so good
