Carbon fiber is our friend

Yes! Happy new year.
I dont have any current photos, but I built 3 of these and fly the light one pretty often.

The first one was for figuring out the layup, cg etc. It flew briefly and was then cut up in order to make a ducted fan version that I never finished.
One is all carbon fiber, flies on a 4s 3000mah pack and is the light sport version. Speeds around 160.
The last one has a big Scorpion outrunner, uses 2x 6s 2200mah packs and goes 225mph.

Hi crazy flyer

What are u using to get your d dust to 200? Motor kv, esc, prop, brand of cells
Jan 05, 2020, 05:54 PM
Subsonic FPV
OMEGOOLIEBIRD's Avatar
200mph is a walk in the park these days, even with cheap Hobbyking gear. $120 will get a Funjet Ultra past 200mph.

A Vasa Fusion (composite version of Funjet) can go 360kmh /220mph on the same setup... and 420kmh/260mph with 2600kv @6s.


200mph very close pass!!! (2 min 28 sec)


Fastest FPV in the World. 265Mph. (2 min 22 sec)

E dust has a cheap hobbyking motor 1900kv 36mm itís a 90mm edf motor (same as everyone uses in the funjet) 7x7 prop. itís got a cheap 200a esc and two 3s 2200mah 75c batterys. Flight times are short! Iím about to start building a new one from a kit. I will do a build thread and this one will have a het 700 motor and castle esc.

Going 200 is pretty cheap in a fun jet as said over.

Jeff
