H-King Flycat 70mm 6S EDF


Something new from H-king

https://hobbyking.com/en_us/h-king-f...asc=8990153224



The Flycat is made of strong EPO so it will take a few hard knocks. No need to worry about getting off on a runway as this is a brilliant hand launcher that is also easy to land. The pre-installed 70mm 12-Blade EDF runs on large 6S Lipo batteries for extreme power and lightning-fast speed and provides that super realistic sound that everyone likes on those high-speed passes. It also comes standard with metal-geared servos to ensure you complete all those extreme maneuvers.

It is an easy build as the tail boom and wings plugin. This also makes it easier to transport. The big battery hatch provides easy access to the electronics and a large battery. This is fun flier for the intermediate to advanced pilot.


It’s time to get leaping into the sky and do some extreme flying with your H-King Flycat.


Features:
• Light and Strong EPO foam
• For Intermediate to advanced pilots who like to fly fast
• Plugin tail boom and wings for easy and quick installation
• 12-Blade EDF and ESC preinstalled
• Aileron servo arms protected by covers
• Big canopy hatch for easy battery access and R/C equipment installation
• Big bold, colorful decals are preinstalled



Specs:
Wingspan: 1042mm
Fuselage Length: 1115mm
EDF Unit: 12-Blade 70mm
Motor: 3048-2000KV
ESC: 80A with BEC
Servo: 9g x 3pcs metal geared



Requires:
1 x 6CH Radio System (TX/RX)
1 x 3000mAh 6S 30~60C Lipo Battery

Sure would like to see a video. Since it does not come with retracs would like to see how easy to hand launch. Just bought some 6S 3300mah batteries so this looks like a good jet to use them on.

Interesting.... Really don’t want to have to buy 6S lipos, but if other people test it and say it’s great, perhaps I could be persuaded.....

I don;t mind using a 6s 3000 or lighter. I can hand launch it hard with my left hand if the thrust is close to 1 to 1 using a underhanded throw.

Aren't 6S 3300s a bit more useable with other planes than 3000s?

If I can football throw it with my left maybe, it doesn't look like any good places to grab it from the top to give it a underhanded throw. A 3300 should be able to work it all comes down to how much the battery weights.

Modify for larger fan and recessed wheels


Wingspan over 1 m, that is large even compared to many 90mm EDF jets!

Maybe it can be modified to fit 80mm fan?

And looks like there is no belly cheater hole, so it is possible to add recessed wheels to take off from ground with minimal drag and look clean. Very interesting!

HK: most of us have some spare 70-90mm power system, it will be nice to offer kit at ~$100. This should fly better than Skysword.
