Amazing job Tony. Best implementation of scale looks with reasonable flight time that I have ever seen. Nicely done!

Hi Tony. Any updates with your new 4 cell motors?

What FC did you use?

Hi Aaron,

No up-dates as yet as I have taken some time out of aeromodelling...burning the midnight oil over all these years has taken it toll on the health over the past few months....close to burn out!....however, getting back in the swing of it with renewed vigour so expect to see some up-dates over the next few months....

The FC i have are a clone of the NanoWii board bought from the US.....

A slight set back was I crashed prototype No.11 below....on a positive note it was pilot error and i did learn that the CofG is absolutely critical to achieve a smooth transition....If the CofG is forward by 1/2" or so, the model rears up in transition. if the CofG is rear by 1/2" the model pitches down on transition....

Thanks for the update. Sorry to hear of the crash but I'm sure you will be back in the air in no time. Tried to get a copy of the RCM&E issue you published this bird in but but paypall just keeps spinning. Will keep trying.

Finally got to see your article! Now I need your plans for the airframewink

Hi Tony. You mentioned you needed 48amp to hover. This is the amp draw of just one edf and not all four together?

48amps in total so 12amps per EDF,,,,can just squeeze 3.5mins of hover from a 3200mah lipo

Wow that sounds incredible. I can't find a single 64mm fan unit that draws less than 30 amps by its self.

I'm willing to purchase a parts list from you if you decide to make one available. Until then I look forward to seeing more.

Each fan will happily draw 30amps on their own but if you connect 4 to one battery, the battery itself is the restriction so each fan motor can only draw what the battery allows...I used a 30c 3200mah so 48amps is just comfortable and its just sufficient to achieve hover...to climb in the hover that takes more power of course

I see. That sounds like a smart use of the power so the fans don't get to hungry even if they want to. Thanks again for all the info.

I guess most people have seen this.

From 30 seconds in.

Stunning, but why so near to power/phone lines?

Same here. Am very interested in anything you might have as far as building the airframe goes.
