Thread: Durafly EDF Vampire
26/01/2013 08:42:58

Got mine,built it (pnf version) no problems with the build. going to install the flat cf strip in the booms today, different story with the electronics, nothing happened when i plugged my lipo in-well i say nothing there was a brief twitch a flash of the light in my rx....and thats it. so i had another esc from another plane connected it up to all including fan- hey presto it all works (including the retracts).

off to hobbyking goes an email to customer support, to which i got an almost instant reply asking for a pic and order no ect, which i promptly sorted. well that was on Monday the 21st Jan- not a peep since..(i know its only been 5 days ) even after me contacting them three more times,Not that impressed!!!

on another note ive heard somewhere about making the nose leg retract either longer or raising the mount to aid the take off??? can anyone confirm or point me in the right direction of this being done

no flying today.... five inches of crusty snow on the runway

Yak 54 all the way!! you really should try it , it's awesome, i just can't get enough of it
06/03/2011 19:38:50
Thanks David for adding it to the review list. yes the noise is very nice. can't believe how quick it goes too, then very slow also. as i fly of the peri track on a disused airfield i have cross wind issues normally, but i think i could land her at 90deg to the strip as she comes in so slow

Hi After reading the review on the E flite Carbon Z Yak 54 i decided to buy one, it arrived on my door step in a huge box-it felt like christmas, it took longer to unpack it than it did to get it flight ready MOST impressed with the packaging !!!
anyway today i took it to the field put the supplied lipo in and pointed it into the wind stick full forward and well wow about seven feet and it was off, bearing in mind this was a test flight i set it vertical and it just went up like a home sick angel for what seemed like for ever. trimmed it with only two clicks of down and it was hands off, this plane is seriously good fun to fly either low and slow just out in front like a shocky, or fast and smooth like a warbird. landing is unreal no wind today and it just floated in for a three pointer. can't wait until next weekend to fly it again.
All i can say is get one it does more than it says on the tin !!!!!
Thread: My new Phase 3 F-16 thoughts...
15/08/2010 08:47:59
Hi Stuey, im not sure of the kv rating of my red velocity fan  but i think its the first version. i used a Loongmax 2250 4s in it for about the last year-then i tried this new pack out about two months ago   and WOW it really does go like a rat up a drain pipe. i had to slice some foam out down the sides  not to much,then i glued some flat carbon strips to the sides.and the lipo sits well back in the cockpit. going to give it a blast today looks like a good day
14/08/2010 19:17:16
In my second phase 3  F-16 airframe ive gone down the poly c route with tissue and carbon spar. im using the lander Red velocity metal fan,and a 2650mah 40c 4s Zippy lipo, 
not sure how fast it goes  but its QUICK- almost unlimited vertical, good 45 degree climbout. good fun!!

Hi Timbo, did you have any probs with the retracts, one of mine although locked up still leaves the retract door sticking out quite a bit.
love the finish of the kit its  superb !

Hi i have also replaced the servo in the wing that goes the normal way! as and when i need to do the other i just get a metal geared servo and buy a servo reversing 'y' lead, they work a treat ive used a few.
Hi shades im sorry about your problems   keep on with it because it really is an ace plane to fly im sure you will love it, i goes out with me to the strip every time i go-but i dont fly it in strong cross winds, only have two choices of take off direction as we fly from an old airfield.  good look and have fun
