|Thread: Are you or will you be building from a traditional kit or plan?|
Own design Hawker P1091 EDF. Forward fuselage from West Wings Hunter parts, I drew the rest in ACAD and cut on a CNC router.
|Thread: Best model for a 70mm fan unit..?|
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: SR-71 Blackbird|
I used the "e-mail me" link in the ad.
Truth be I have too many projects waiting anyway
No reply received to my e-mail and no post on here.................
Am interested, have sent you an e-mail.

|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: 64mm fan / 3mm shaft impossible ?|
Try Giant Cod:
|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|
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|
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|
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?
Edited By Dizz on 07/07/2010 23:07:04
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.

However, my main question is: Why is this plane called "HABU" ?
"Habu (波布?) is a Japanese name used to refer to certain venomous snakes ..."
Like a Viper maybe?
|Thread: EDF kit suggestions|
link to RBC EDF kits:
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.
Edited By Dizz on 28/06/2010 08:44:44
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)
