F117 maiden flight scratch build----fun hobby.


Hi,

Decided to fly EDF a few months ago.

"Never say never."

...wanted to start with a cheap home made something
before flying my new Freewing Yak 130 70mm EDF,
which is still in the box.

So, just flew my 1st scratch built EDF F117, foam board jet.

Actually my first time flying an EDF plane also....

Went OK. Nothing fancy, just a quick test ride to check
battery usage after 2 minutes.

Have 3 more foam board EDFs on the workbench now,
a BatWing, a TinMan StealthDrone, and an X47B.
All plans from Foam Concept Jets, all 70mm.

This is fun.

I will fly my Yak 130 eventually!!!

I'd like to build a large f117 with mid-motor prop...
more flight time than EDF for sure!!!

That is a pretty little bird.
Fly it lower and you can enjoy the amazing sound even more

Thanks.

I wanted to keep this plane high and upwind for the maiden flight.

Also, it was my first EDF flight.

Since it actually flew (never sure on a first flight), I wanted
to land at 2 minutes to check battery usage....
heard about EDFs shorter flight times.

Version 2 with a hotter 70 mm fan/motor on 6s.....should
fly this week.

I made a f117 clone last year, a rear prop job. Converted it to a FPV rig. Works great for that. Can fly very slow without stalling.
