Jetball R/T - an EDF powered Nutball'ish thing


Clean forgot to post this build from a couple of weeks ago...
R/T for roasting tin.

Having never flown an EDF anything, a natural thought would have been to build a jet...as any sensible person would do.
So, a Nutball type shape was decided on
I grabbed the kitchen roasting tin and set about making an elongated Nutball....a bit like go faster stripes, the body of it would be stretched. It still doesn't make sense does it.

On to the shape went a brushed GWS 40mm EDF, salvaged from a crashed Kid Galaxy flying wing from circa 2009, that I bought at a seconds store.
10-15A brushed ESC, ex Harbor Freight Mustang I believe
AR6310 RX
2x 3.7g servo's
260mA Venom 2S lipo
12.6" wingspan, 17" length
RET controls
AUW 3.2oz

It was too heavy on the first flight attempts. So, off came the landing skids underneath, the other ESC was replaced by this Harbor Freight one (lightened by removing plastics and changing the wire gauge) and also the thrust tube was completely removed.
And now....now she flew !
