Hi. Try calling subscriptions 0844 543 8200 and have a chat with them about it. I'm sure you will find them helpful.

Hi all,

I need to end my subscription as I have been busy for the past year, as a result I have a large number of magazines to catch up on. I'd like to know how to end my subscription as I have more than enough magazines to keep me occupied for a while.

Thanks in advance! yes

Yeah I have a 4600kv outrunner so I will be getting either a 35A or a 40A esc, and thanks for the advice!

I haven't assembled mine yet... I don't know where to put my esc without cutting anything, and I don't want to cut anything D:

Thread: Turnigy Compatible Balance Lead

These fine chaps might be able to help...from the HK website picture its difficult to asess which plugs this charger will accept. I'm pretty sure Turnigy use the JST XH type though so maybe Component Shop will sort you out with an adaptor lead if necessary......

@Pete....Mr Myers was probably flying his IC planes in the meantime.....sensible chap...thumbs upwink 2

Thanks for that link! I'll see if they have what I need. The problem with the one from GS is it doesn't have enough pins to fit into the charger as the charger has 12, and the balance board had around 8. And the balance board that came with the charger has connector ports that are too small for the balance leads of a battery pack.

I agree, sorry about that. I hadn't flown leccy's for a while so it wasn't used. I am using a Turnigy Imax B8+ from Hobby King

Edit: Oh dear, a year tomorrow!

Hi all!

I'd like to know if a JETiger set-up would be compatible with a new T-45 kit I ordered. In my JETiger I used a Turnigy nano-tech 1300mah 3S 25~50C Lipo Pack with the stock 30 amp esc, stock 64mm 6 bladed edf unit and the stock 4000kv brushless inrunner motor. I plan to transfer the motor, battery and the esc into the T-45 kit when it comes, however it uses a 5 bladed 64mm edf unit, will there be any problems?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Bud, i'm going to do the same with my electronics.....(as you know) i bought a T-45 yesterday.....my question is will my 2200mah batt's be ok or too heavy? sorry to butt-in your post,

A 2200 will be all good. However this will pull 31 amps, just make sure your ESC is up to it

Wouldn't that kv be alright for an EDF which needs to spin fast?

Thanks for the quick reply, and forgive my stupidness....whats 'EDF' mean?

Electric Ducted Fan. Think electric jets smiley

Thread: First EDF tutorial / instructions needed

Firstly mount your motor inside the EDF shroud, remember to use a bit of locktite on the screws.

Next you should find the threaded adaptor that slides over your motor shaft and then is held in place by compression, once the fan is installed and the bolt tightened up.

Normally the threaded part of the shaft also has an internal thread, usually about 2mm. the domed 'spinner' is then fitted onto the fan and held in place with a small bolt passing through the dome and threading into this internal thread on the adaptor shaft.

This link shows you what i mean, albeit not your fan unit and uses a locking grub screw rather than compression, but principle is exactly the same. Does this help?

Thank you! This type of tutorial I need! (your text tutorial, I have read through the one in the link numerous times but it doesn't help due to reasons which will be highlighted in this post) Unfortunately I will need you to come up with something a little like that again (sorry!). Here's why: the spinner and the fan is all one thing, with a hole going through, exactly like this: **LINK** Now, lets say the shaft passes through the hole in that, what do I do? Because there isn't a hold in the shaft adaptor for a bolt, so would I have to put a nut on?

01/08/2013 13:35:29

Okay, the motor from a Jetiger is going into a T-45. The T-45 comes with the shroud pre-installed. The motor fits perfectly into the shroud, ready to be screwed in. Now, the shaft adaptor for the motors shaft isn't long enough, but that can wait, let's say I have the correct one and I'm ready to put everything together, what do I do? Do I put the impellor on and put a nut on the exposed on the exposed part of the adaptor? I know that is most likely wrong but that's the kind of information I need.

If I could get an exploded view of an edf like this (but with the parts) that would be perfect! **LINK**

Thanks!

Hi all
I'm in need of help as I have put my self out of my comfort zone of PNF/RTF and got myself a kit in which I need to put an EDF together. I am looking for a tutorial of some sort that will guide me through what I need and what I need to do.
The only thing that I have found is this: http://manuals.hobbico.com/gpm/gpmg3910-3911-manual.pdf
but I find it to be a bit vague.
If you could provide me with useful material it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Hi all!

I am in the process of assembling my EDF motor that will be put into a T-45 kit. This is my first time assembling an EDF motor so I have run into an obstacle. I am aware that once I put the motor into the EDF housing (which I know how to do), I will be unable to put the fan on due to a metal piece obstructing it. I do not know how to remove it and what I will have to do once I put the fan/spinner on... Do you?

Thanks in advance!20130730_150922.jpg
