Some time ago I bought a set of lightweight (2kg max) electric retracts from Hobbyking. I did not have any specific use in mind but I was interested to see how they operated and how 'heavy' they actually felt. Although they do exactly what they are supposed to so far they have just sat in the...

On the full size surprisingly the tail was not the weakest bit. link Oops! They did not last that long 1938 - 43. Of the 7 built, 3 crashed on landing, 2 destroyed on the ground and the last two scrapped due to deterioration of the spruce/balsa construction. But still a super looking craft and two...

On other forums there has been several DH Comet builds of one sort or another some small, some large, some with one EDF mounted in the fuselage, some with 2 or 4 mounted in the wings but as far as I can tell all have had to adopt over size ducts somewhere along the line. So my intention is to build...

Still mulling over potential EDF configurations for my Comet 1 As a true skin flint I am still finding it hard to justify spending the best part of £90 on 4 tiny EDFs on what will be a 'small' foam plane. ;) I have come up with an interesting variation. 4 inlets, 4 exhaust, all scale ducts but...

Just pulled the TN plan for the BAE HAWK from the mag, as I don't have much room at the moment to build I thought I would blow it up by 10% and put a 90mm edf in it So ill take the plan to the printer tomorrow to get it blown up and make a start on it next week as I have a few sticks of balsa...
