Exceed RC F/A-18C 70mm EDF RC Jet


Turn and burn with the ALL-NEW F/A-18C Electric Ducted Jet from Exceed RC. This EDF jet has everything you ever wanted - high-speed flying, real jet style aerobatics and has one of the BEST low-speed characteristics of any ducted fan airplane ever! Larger than most EDFs and pushers, the F18 has a HUGE presence in the sky. Exceed RC's high quality foam gives unparalleled durability. The F18 RTF kit include a ducted fan unit and brushless motor, assembled and balanced. Easy to put together with regular hobby CA and will survive crashes than send balsa and composite planes to the garbage can. This is simply the BEST LOOKING and MOST ECONOMICAL EDF in its class. Only takes half an hour to put this baby together and you're set to go! 100% Ready to Fly.
RC EDF F-18 SCALE PERFORMANCE! (7 min 59 sec)

I'm not sure. This is up to our marketing team decide. All I know is that they are working out some really sweet deals.You can bet that they will put up things people like. Otherwise, what's the whole purpose of Black Friday!

F/A-18C w/ 14.8 volt pack


I just received the Exceed F/A-18C (my first EDF) recently and wondered if anyone else has bought this yet. I didn't notice the "note from the expert" at the bottom of the page when I ordered...

"This plane was originally designed for an 11v LiPo battery pack, but now ships with a higher voltage & capacity 14.8v LiPo pack for more power. Please be aware that while the included ESC can handle the extra voltage, the BEC on board the ESC cannot. You will have to supply your own BEC to fly this plane safely with the increased power and disable the BEC on the included ESC."

I flew it Saturday with an 11volt pack and it flew great, albeit fairly slow. I want to put the 14.8 volt pack in but wanted to solicit advice on a recommended replacement BEC and any words of wisdom for disabling the stock ESC's onboard BEC.

Thanks in advance!

Dr. Dave
RWSduc, not problem on the BEC replacement. Just cut out the old one and follow the manufactures diagram. The red wire I believe will be removed. I did not detail this because the BEC was not a part of the review and I saw no need to promote someones BEC. PM me and I will look at mine to give you the details.

ANY idea when the kit version of this model will be available? I've been waiting forever and checking every day, but it still shows out of stock.
