Default Smoking FAST electric STINGER prototype EDF jet

Watched this fly at my local club today. Originally designed by my buddy Rich Chant and sold onto Tomahawk Design. This version is setup for bungee launch so is super light. AUW less batteries is 5lbs exactly. With 2 5s 3300 packs it's 7lbs. Schubeler DS-51 with a Lehner 1950/11 motor. This is an 8-10s combo. Setup pulls 63A @ 2500 watts on 10S.

Fast ?

Here's a converted 50mm EDF to Pusher that is flown at mostly 1/2 throttle ....

On a later flight she was clocked at over 180kph

My Parkjet was clocked at 222kph....

Here's another 50mm EDF at over 140kph ... actually clocked on one flight at 150kph (140 is a wall for any T45 or similar design ... takes a lot of power to get past that).

Its an addictive world that I have finally managed to salvage myself from. I still have my Parkjet twin to sort - calculated speed is over 300kph ... but its a dog to get launched.

Good luck !
