Still only flown the Habu, so it would be a challenge for me....

I would have to fly from the chicken farm runway as its the only hard surface runway we have our fields are too rough for jets......

If my health improves and i can go back to work again, i reckon i might be tempted for this one Already have a few 6s batts now too, But at the moment i am broke!and here in Australia this plane is gonna be over $700

Cheers Chuck

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the comments. Let me know if there are any questions.
We are certainly very pleased with the FlexJet.
We are are getting that performance on 6S and about 80A (after peak is worn of battery).

Here are a few links in case they are handy...

Flex is killing me. I'm waiting for the Cap 232 to ship and now this. I'll guess I'll have to bite the bullet and order this EDF. Hopefully it will arrive before SEFF so I can show it off there. I'm sure the crew from Flex will be there showing it off for all of us to get that itch to buy one.

Are the lettering decals factory applied? I would prefer being able to decorate the plane myself.

TAFT fan


very nice! 11-blade fan, 1450kV outrunner - sounds like the TAFT unit (from the data, not from the sound in the plane, good ducting does not make for wooshy sound...)
EDIT: downloaded the manual from the product site - pic on p.10 clearly shows a TAFT unit

Very VERY tempting. But not for a few weeks yet. I just bit on the F-4 yesterday and need to recover from it.

This looks like a KAI T-50 Golden Eagle, but a single seat version?

Definitely more than a passing similarity IMO to the T-50
