Nigel,

I'm currently using a 64mm fan with a Cyclone motor on 4S 3600, only needed to carve foam for the lip. She's nice and fast on that setup, a good 3 minutes of flying, and speeds around...

Ha ha, no, just the F-5, ordering it tomorrow. Maybe I will get the F-16 when the next batch arrives in a few months. But we'll have to see.

The Skyangel 50mm F-16 has been my favorite EDF to date. I've beat that plane to death and it still refuses to quit.

I'm planning to order the Freewing F-5 on Friday (hopefully MRC will still...

You did the right thing. Better to piss the guy off and have him never come back, than for him to continue flying there and possibly get your field closed.

I'm looking forward to this one (AND the F-5, AND the T-45, AND the F-104). Man, MotionRC is going to get a lot of my hobby money this year!

Never mind, my answer didn't work.

But "Luck be in the air tonight" doesn't work either (or else the "i" would have been turned in "air"). ;)

Nothing at all wrong with the 72mHz radios and equipment. The advent of 2.4GHz did not make 72 suddenly stop working.

So many people talked about "glitching" on 72. But I bet the majority of that...

Also be sure your DC power supply does not provide more voltage than your ESC can handle. Not sure if that ESC is only good to 12v, or 18v.

That's a decent looking mod for the cheater hole. I'd even go so far as suggesting a third slot be added forward of the current 2. The more airflow, the better (so long as there's not too much ;)).

Yes, you pick up some positive thrust in the air as you will have air flowing more freely into the opening. With the cheater hole close, you are "starving" the fan for air.

Will,

The auxiliary air intake is the cheater hole. It's best to leave it off for performance, otherwise you loose a little thrust. But it can be installed if you wish. And yes, glue it in...

Definitely an AT-6 Texan, and not a P-51 Mustang. Not sure about the manufacturer though, but it has to be an older nitro kit, maybe for a .46 size engine.

Chellie cheated, but I'll add to it. Give me the military designation. Bonus points if you can name the TV series that used this plane. ;)

The Starfighter was the one I was thinking of (we have a new F-104 thread going over on RCG).

Still looking for the ID of the Bamboo Bomber. I even have several pics of one owned locally here.

A-4 Skyhawk. I'm hoping that Freewing has an 80mm version in the works. I loved my GWS A-4, but would love a scale Scooter from Freewing even more!

I have one of these that I need to build. Plan to use just a 2212-6 2200kv motor with a 30A ESC, APC 6X4E, and a 3S 2200. Even on this setup it's pretty speedy.
