It would be nice if you new guys, when your filling out your profile, would include your location.

Your comments suggest your NOT from the USA.. Just on the evening news tonight, they reported on 3 different times this week, where airline pilots reported drones in the way of there approach --

With fools out there doing this, it won't be to long before the FAA does something drastic.

Here's a video I found on youtube, someone using essentially the same setup:
Catching up? That guy is in the lead by a long way imo. If there isn't video, it didn't happen. That's just the way it is today.

This is an awesome project! Do you have an stl file you can post?

I've been wanting to build an EDF saucer. Do you have stl files you can post ?
I've been working on printing my own EDF fans.

EDF flying saucer

Oh boy, I've been gone for a while, been busy with work.

Here's my video from October 2013, his saucer flight is 2014.
It wasn't a good flight so I had been hesitant to post it.

Please excuse my crappy voice, I'm not from the US

@Jerry, I wasn't gonna print the EDFs since I was worried the printed material isn't strong enough to take the fan vibrations. I intended to the print the hull, which are made to fit standard 70mm EDFs. If you want it I could send it to you the files are too large to attach.

Nice EDF UFO. Here is my latest ducted UFO build using 9" props in 9.5" ducts. Complete with clear canopy, space alien lit up with red and blue leds, nav lights, flashing lights, tractor beam, and low battery red led lights.
