Default Skyangel 35mm EDF jet series

This line of jets hasn't been out for all that long, but they have become popular due to the tough EPO construction and good performance. So far, there is the F-16, F-18, F-86, T-45 and Mig-15 for the single EDF models and the F-15, A-10 and Mig-29 for the dual EDF models.


The motor used is a rather small 7400 kV (tested) outrunner that spins either a 5 blade impeller on 2s voltage or a 3 blade impeller for 3s voltage. Performance is pretty good on 2s and outstanding on 3s. The models come in various forms from airframe kits all the way up to plug and play packages. The ARFs are set up with a 6A esc and are intended for 2s lipo. For those wanting more performance, swap the ESCs for a 10A version that handles high rpm outrunners, add a 3s lipo and hold on. You'll have unlimited vertical and pretty fast speeds. These jets handle the wind much better than the typical micro airplane and survive the occational rough landings.

The only one missing from my collection is the T-45 and the F-16 (for the moment), they are addictive for sure. So post your experiences, photos, modifications, etc......


Recommended sources for these are:

www.hobbyb.com
www.toysonics.com
www.bananahobby.com








The 35mm micro hog and it's larger 50mm kin ready for flight.



Here are some test flight videos showing the performance. Most show the stock 2s performance while the F-15 shows the 3s upgrade.


Here is a FAQ and CG database:

Just a heads up to all that the stock 35mm EDF fans outrunner is rated at ~7400kV, not 9000kV as advertised.

Joe, I tested 3 of them this morning and they averaged out to around 7400kV.

The early one I got must have been a lemon to have 6600 and probably explains why mine wouldn't fly on 2S and others at the field could.

I've done a few upgrades over the past few weeks, I put a new matched pair of motors from hobbyb.com in the Mig-29 and was able to correct the thrust line issue. I'm now running these on 3s with the three blade fan. Thrust to weight is over 1:1, the fans run smoother and the model now flys the way it should.

The Mig-15 also got a new motor and 3 blade fan as well. There's less vibration, a much more smooth and quiet sound with a pleasant "whoosh". The motor stays cooler with the 3 blade fan on 3s, and the extra RPMs give great performance in spite of only 3 blades.

There's only 2 out of the 35mm series I don't have yet, the F-16 and the T-45. Decisions, decisions......
