TechOne Neptune 64mm EDF Jet Wing 4S Performance Flight


This is the flight of my 1230mm wingspan TechOne Neptune 64mm EDF Jet Wing, modified for 4S flight.

TechOne Neptune 64mm EDF Jet Wing 4S Performance Flight (4 min 39 sec)

MODIFICATIONS AND INTERNALS:
1) Receiver - Lemon RX DSMX 7-Ch Diversity Stabilizer / Receiver
2) ESC - Hitec Energy Sport 40a ESC
3) Battery - Tattu 4S 1800mAh 75C Lipo
4) EDF Unit - FMS 2840-3150KV Motor / 11-Blade Ducted Fan Unit
5a) Internal Cooling - Custom 3D-Printed Ram Air Intake Scoop (Lipo / ESC Cooling)
5b) Internal Cooling - Additional Rear Hatch Exhaust Outlets Cut (1:3 Inlet-Outlet Ratio)
6) Servos - Hitec HS-5055MG 9-Gram Metal Gear Servos x 2
7) Structural Rigidity - .057" x .177" x 11" Carbon Fiber Flat Spars x 2 (channeled and inserted in between the fuselage and wing sections)

I've had this EDF wing for several years now, but it's never had any spotlight time until now. This is absolutely one of my favorite and unique wings that I've kept to myself from social media until my friend Robert decided to record my flight yesterday. The grass was also at the right height and smoothness to attempt a take-off from, as well as a touch and go. Very much to my surprise, both were easy to do, and is another fun/unique feature from this already cool EDF wing.

It's a shame that there aren't many (if at all) of these EDF wings in production anymore. Despite the poor TechOne equipment it came out of the box with (a stock motor lead that had a wire separate on inspection, malfunctioning ESC, and a busted plastic servo), The Neptune is really a brilliant EDF Wing design that comes alive when quality internals are installed. I'm hoping that there will be an EDF wing re-release of something like it from one of the current reputable manufacturers in the future.
