Installed mine on the F35 V3 inrunner. Straightforward process and sits nice and secure with the included cable tie. Controller board is tiny and disappears under the tray and the wires seemed the perfect length - not too long, not too short.

The light is BRIGHT.

I've ordered a second one for another plane - if you're in Australia these arrive within about a week of placing your order.

I am not a big EDF guy, but I recently ordered the Avios MiG-17... mainly because I saw these MiGs flying at my field with the Lightburner and they looked absolutely amazing!

Look like the AB is attached to the back of
The motor....
Is this AB for inrunner or out runner motor?
What size of the motor???

I have adapters for almost any fan units in the market today; inrunners and outrunners

the Freewing F4 90MM is a duo or single LED? I got the one for my Avios Mig and is fantastic.

Thank you Maxun!
The dual LED setup works best on the Freewing F-4.

The pictures look great!...Did any of you line the exhaust ducting with aluminum foil tape?...Reason for asking is I’m trying to get an idea of what to expect when I install the unit in my 90mm Freewing F-4....

Another question—My large HSD F-16 has an afterburner ring already installed in the tail cone and has it’s own control board...Can I just connect your Lightburner with a Y connector to run with the stock afterburner ring?...If necessary I can take voltage readings from the output of the AB ring controller to make sure that my AB controller won’t over voltage your unit ...

Hi Kevin,
I typically use aluminum foil for models with a simple tailpipe design (ones like the F-16 or the Mig-17) since it's easier to lay the foil. I use 3M contact spray to secure it to place. For models with more advanced tailpipe shapes, I use a different technique; I seal the foam with a couple of layers of polycrylic glossy spray (or any other water-based glossy lacquer) and finish it with a few layers of rustoleum chrome mirror effect spray paint - the finish product is as good as laying aluminum foil.

Yes, those two can coexist, just use a y-harness connected to the throttle channel to control the Lightburner.

I ordered one yesterday for a FW F18. Run another brand on my F22 and really like the results. I lined the 22 with foil and it has held up well for 40 or so flights. This two layer paint process sounds like a better way to go and I'm going to try it on the 18.
