one simple question is what kind of print i could use in these FFF? i heard Home depot print will attack FFF, but my LHS is 50 miles away. not too worth the trip. Also anyone know what is the next upgrade for 2408 21T motor? i am looking for something more power but hope to keep the weight the same ( perfer bell motor design) thanks in advance.

Hi truck,

Testors makes a good paint I've used on Depron without negative effects. It's a bit pricey, but the best bang for the buck. Krylon H20 is water based and will not attack any foam I'm aware of. It's a bit tricky to apply, and can get messy if not applied slowly and lightly, but if done right, it works fine, (albeit heavy).
As far as motors go, take a look here http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/tp_motor.html and find one which gives you more watts then your current one....I see the 2409 21T supposedly can take 113W for a short period, look for one that can produce more while turning the prop you wish. I think a lot of these are "bell" type motors, so hopefully you can find what you're looking for. I would suggest picking one out, then see if http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/StoreFront
carries it. You will receive it very quickly.

Good luck,

gofish

42" FFF maiden aftermath II


Rebuilt everthing from TE of the wing forward. Changed the motor to a BW from HeadsupRC w/8x4 prop, 1,000 mah bat. Went out 6:30 for a test flight. Checked all controls. Working great.
Launched and it flew. Literally Got it up and playing around and noticed the wind was affecting it quite a bit. Long story short. The last time I seen it, it looked smaller than a pin head, at least 800+ high and over a 1/4 mile away. Lots of commercial buildings and then residential. Looked but nada. Because it was [I]supposed[I] to be just a test flight hadn't put my ID on it yet. No worries about will it fly but can I fly it? Pops

Way to go Space1! That is absolutely amazing! I would love to see the the video on it. I'm kinda thinking of putting a edf on my mod epp eagle. I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

Did you put the edf on the cg? Oh yeah, how did you get a carbon fiber rod that long?

Nice find Lee. The smart bird was mentioned in the ornithopter thread. I said that if festo were to market this bird and if it's the right price, I'm in! It flies so smoothly.

Nice video (the background music was good with it!). Is it just V-tail for control?
