I think this platform would make a good first EDF. Let us know how your edf choice works out. If you can get away with a lighter battery (1500-1800mah) you will probably get better performance.

BTW - what is the item in front of the right vertical stab?

Gator is correct, it looks like a return address sticker. Here in the US, the AMA requires that you have your contact info listed on your plane somewhere for identification purposes. Plus, it's not a bad idea either. If you loose a plane, odds are you may get it back if found.

I usually put mine inside the electronics bay though on the inside of the hatch.

ok, makes sense. I could not tell. I thought maybe it was another embedded servo.

Pat and gatorb8 are right, it's a return mailing address.
About using a smaller battery, I flew these two on and off all summer with a 2200mah battery. To me it's the right battery. I get about 4 to 4.5 minutes a flight. So let's do the math.
2200=4 min.
1800=3.28 min.
1500=2.72 min.
This is why I use a 2200.
Also, the C.G. would have a big change. The battery would be hanging from the nose.(kidding)
Thanks for the interest.

THANK YOU Tom for an awesome flying design! I flew three packs through my F-22 this afternoon with the new $14.00 2200kv motor I picked up at the Kalamazoo,Mi show a few weeks back. WOW she is quick now. I still want to add the ailerons to her and a gyro to help smooth her out a little more. Enjoy

Don I had to do some backtracking and figure out which one it is. Stupid me cleaned up the old work area and threw out the packaging. Here is a link to it I found on eBay.

John...

In the future, you can get the original Suppo motor right here in the States for a buck more and way faster shipping. Nico Hobbies has excellent customer service:

I should have clarified that I bought mine from a local hobby dealer here in Michigan. I was at a R/C swap meet. I understand that keeping the monies on this side of the pond is important and will do so as long as the costs are reasonable. The link I posted just happened to be the first one that popped up.

Here's a pair of Coroplast F-22's on a windy Florida day.

Even though I had thought I had built these two identically, I must have included a tree magnet in my buddy's .........

What mean gigging?

My f22 has already 4 or 5 years, I learn to fly with it (and also with a 3d plane)

After thousand crashes, it is still flying so good

It is a bit boring now (too slow). But a thing that I like it is the landing.
My plane can probably reach 60-70mph but anyway I can slowing down some much that I can land land like a russet.
During the landing it did not slide on the ground

Yes it was Abby Normal
Fellow F22 Profile prop pushing pilots,

After witnessing local flyboys hooting around with their F22 Profile prop pushers....I decided to purchase a depron paper covered F22 pre-built plane from my local hobby shop and dive into the fun. It had the motor and both 9g servo's with an Orange receiver all ready to go....All I had to do is order batteries and paint it....so I have ordered some Turnigy Nano-Tech 25-50C 1000Amp and 45-90c 1300Amp Lipo's....paint schem photos attached.

I know these these RC's are pretty quick and crazy fun....expecting a learning curve on this thing alright.

Found a video to set up Ailervons...and how to tweak up the throws (full rates).

I have no idea what size motor it has (lable is scatched illedgible) ..it has a 6x4 prop lable pointing forward (correctly)....I have no idea where the COG should be.

So any suggestions of COG would be appreciated:
Length: 36inches / 914.4mm
Wingspan: 25.75inches / 654.05mm
