Hello Booky, I'll try to help you with your request. There are 3 websites that you can start your search: Hobbyking, Hobbypartz, and Leaderhobby. I have 12 EDF jets ranging from 50mm to 80 mm fans. On your F-22, I would recommend at least a 4 cell 2200mah at a minimum 30c rating, 40 c would be even better. Use a 60 amp ESC, and you'll have no problem. You should expect an amp draw of about 40-43 amps. Look for a brushless motor speced for a 70mm fan. Check your fan's adapter shaft diameter and make sure the motor you chose has the matching diameter, ie 4mm, 3.1mm ect. As a side note, the F-22 is a great flying jet I have 100 flites on mine and it refuses to crash!!!! The plane rolls like a drill bit, so keep the aileron throws to a minimum. Try to plan on at least 250 watts per pound for good performance.

Thank you N42375, this F-22 has one servo for the ailerons and the vertical stabilizers, which means it is an elevon or delta set up. this would be my first. i assume that one servo connects to the elevator and one to aileron and the set up on my DX6i would be delta. do i assume correctly?

Default F-22

Booky, you are correct on how to set up elevons- one servo to the elevator port, the other to the aileron port. However,I'm confused- does your F-22 have retracts, standard ailerons, elevators and Fixed rudders?
