"Golden Arrow" 90mm gold plated EDF jet. "Maiden attempts footage""


Based on couple of smallest EDF jets in my fleet, the new over 2 meter version is in its embryonic state. Still making my mind which power unit to fit in, it will be either pretty thirsty SM89/8S or JF90 on 10S, easilly exchangeable.

Rolled out the new thrust tube for the "SM" power unit, while giving it bit of strength with complimentary colours.
All the art work with gold application is in progress.

After first check run on 8S it's running too hot at some 120A draw, after re-program of the 120A/ESC down to 6S it seem to have plenty of juice below much friendlier 80 A current.
