Thrust tube. The Dons Wicked 64mm EDO1 fan and Wicked 4800 motor (26mm bell diameter) require a 2.062" diameter outlet at 80% fan sweep area. Here is a little jig I saw somewhere and thought I might pass it on. Yeah, it's fast and dirty and shimmed with tape but at least it gives me some length/square lines to score the plastic to. Thought I would pass it on.


Getting very close!

Hurry up and finish that bad boy. I love the paint scheme BTW!

Taking mine out again tomorrow for another couple sorties.

This thing is outrageous, and only on 3s. 4800kv in a EDO 1 64mm 5 blade unit. Donsrc did a really nice job on the dyno balancing. Ducted to 80% FSA it pulls 500 watts give or take a few. The ZTW Mantis 45a esc is performing very well on auto timing. Hand launches beautifully with a light overhand toss. 30 degree climb out absolutely no sweat. Low speed handling is beautiful and the high speed passes really scream. If you want speed, for around $150 complete, THIS is the model. This set up is quite a bit faster than stock, I won't say twice as fast but it's close. It gets tiny very quickly. 3+ minutes on a 2200mAh 3s 30c Turnigy pack with the throttle burried, 7 should be no sweat with management...awaiting delivery of better packs from Revolectrix.

Yep, can't beat this plane as far as bang for the buck. And the kits are on sale again for $40!

It also has great re-purpose value. I just crushed my previous time record for blowing off the driveway after mowing the lawn. Neighbors are still wondering what the hell I was waving around.
