Thread: Are you or will you be building from a traditional kit or plan?
22/07/2011 19:58:32
Own design Hawker P1091 EDF. Forward fuselage from West Wings Hunter parts, I drew the rest in ACAD and cut on a CNC router.

Also doing an old Viggen kit that was designed for an OS91VRF and Dynamax fan, b ut with a Stumax 110-52 EDF running on 12S Lipos.
Thread: Best model for a 70mm fan unit..?
15/04/2011 16:52:49
The Phase 3 F-16 will take a 70mm fan with the minimum of work and go like stink............if you can find the airframe only at the moment.

Thread: another 'which edf' thread!

I would say the Phase 3 (Ripmax) EF-16 fits your spec exactly.
Plenty of info on it available on here.

Thread: F-18 upgrade ??

To improve static thrust (helps hand launch) don't forget that there tweaks you can do to the intake - make sure the duct is as smooth as possible and the intake lip has a nicely rounded section.  I know it is comparing apples with pears, but adding a rounded intake ring to a HET6904 on my test stand increased static thrust from 1.6 kg to over 2.2kg and the Watts jumped by 10% from 1266 t0 1389W. 
I also assume that you were both comparing installed thrust figures or test stand figures and not mixing the 2.

Thread: 72" Vulcan build
18/11/2010 22:36:20
Drawing I told you about has arrived - not the factory one though, he couldn't find it.  This one a scale drawing by J F Henderson.  Wing plan and outer cross sections different to the Warpain book pull-out plan so now I have to work out which one is correct,
Think I will start by checking against the Airfix kit.
Thread: Cyclone 4300Kv EDF results
11/09/2010 17:53:32
I swapped the stock fan in my Graupner (SAPAC) Typhoon for a 3900kV Red Cyclone last year.  Installed figures I got were 575W steady state on Overlander 25C 2600 4S with 870g static thrust. I know we are comparing apples with pears, but gives a feel for the difference in the 2 winds.  I actually bought 2 4300kV reds out here in Singapore on Wednesday to go in a winter project so I'm pleased to see Tim's test results.

Thread: Habu EDF jet
07/07/2010 23:05:26
I didn't brand it as "really poor value" Tim,  just that I think the F16 is far better. 
How do you assess VFM when you are in the super market doing the weekly shop?

However, my main question is: Why is this plane called "HABU" ?

 I think it maybe the link to the picture of snakes on the tail and wing....just a guess!!!

Edited By Gaz Elliott on 07/07/2010 17:07:57

 Ah yes, but what came first, the snake sticker or the name?  

Or the fact that IMHO it looks very much like the Viper jet? 
I think the Phase3 EF-16 v2 is far better value for money and it is scale(ish) too.

"Habu (波布?) is a Japanese name used to refer to certain venomous snakes ..."
Like a Viper maybe?

link to RBC EDF kits:
28/06/2010 08:44:28
Take a look at the RBC range, but the nature of the beast means that any "traditional" balsa/ply kit will require previous building experience.  Also, all the kits I can think of are designed for wemo mini style 70mm EDF with mounting lugs.  BTW, if you measure your Phase 3 unit you will find the fan diameter is approx 68mm.

The WW Hawk is designd for a Wemotec Minifan or similar.  It is a very nice and well made kit, but you need to have some previous experience building in balsa/ply before attempting.  The Squall fan/motor/ESC combo isn't suitable IMHO.
What about putting it in a Phase 3 EF16 fuselage?  Just the foam parts, canopy, etc are available as spares from several vendors.  I know the Squall EDF will fit - the latest EF-16 complete kits now come with the Squall 3S unit vice the previous 56mm diameter one (got a kit last w/e at Weston Park  from Motors and Rotors)
