curious on how your foam ( I'm guessing wattage ) f-22 works with a fan. I been flying mine with the prop but have a spare MF480 that I can stick in it with mods of course.

and is 7 cells enough ?

BTW love your cat , nice line-up too!

My Wattage F22 I have is still prop powered--I did sort of look at it and think that you could get a fan it it but then after all that it would still be a fomie.

Is the sandy wash looking area that your planes are displayed on the "hard packed runway" that you are advertising?

That "sandy wash" is harder than you think! It is a hard clay cap put over the old land fill site which lies under our flying site. If you wish to come and have some fun with other jet fliers--great. If not --it's your loss.


FYI--the club will have a new runway by the MWE--about 100 yards from the present "sandy wash".

I can't wait for the new runway; Bigger, longer, and easier location to put up a race course next to it
When's the next impromptu EDF fly in??

What surface will the new runway have and what is it's expected size?

The Wattage F-22 flies ok with an EDF, but getting the balance correct is difficult. Mine is running a EDF400 fan case with a cut down Kyosho rotor. Motor is a Kontronic Fun 400-28 on 12 x CP1300 cells. Getting the battery far enough back toward the fan to achieve the correct CG was impossible. I have about four ounces of lead in the tail to get the correct CG. That's about 8-10 percent of the total weight. I'd have to cut the ducts different and move the fan farther back to get the balance right.

As for fitting a MF480...forget it, unless you want a big hump in the bottom or top of the plane, and making the hump would be a pain. The MF480 is about 2 7/8 inch in diameter, while the EDF400 housing is 2.5" in diameter, and it just barely fits...I punhed a hole in the top above the fan housing and had to patch it. A better fan would be the new Vasa 65 fan that Hobby Lobby and EAM carry, that one is close to 2.5".

I'll have the F-22 at the Arizona Jet Rally Saturday morning.

Well, take lots of pics and videos for me at the Arizona fly in. I have an early Thanksgiving to attend to on Sunday and getting a new puppy on Saturday. I'm booked solid
