    Any fan powerful enough for this plane?



    Hi,

    I have been thinking some years about this SAAB J-29 "flying barrel" in scale 1:4.8 below but where I fly it is grass and rather dry so a kersoene turbine is not the best choice for fire/safety point of view. So I have been thinking that maybe there is some electric fan solution out there for a model this seize/weight.

    Can You guide me in some direction where a fan suitable for a plane like this can be found?

    Two images of the plane below.

    Reseller website of the plane (most in German):

    Tab Technical Specifications:



    Wingspan: 2291 mm (90.2 inch)
    Length: 2130 mm (83.9 inch)
    Weight approx: 12-14kg(26-30 lbs)
    Fuselage: Glass
    Wing: Glass
    RC functions: Aileron, elevator, rudder, flaps, throttle, retracts
    Recommended turbine: JetCraft J90+, JetCraft J130+
    Scale: 1:4,8

    I'm no expert in large EDFs, but I would definitely at least check out the DS-94-HST.

    36+ pounds of aircraft on a single powerplant.
    TF8000 comes to mind. search here and rcg to find some thread in the last year about some high powered options with it.

    RE: Any fan powerful enough for this plane?

    Thank's Dayaks and mongo for the suggestions.

    When You see this video below of a similar size and weight model, a Hawker Hunter, with a Schübeler DS-94-DIA HST with DSM6745-700 motor and14 cellLiPo batteries (14 cell 2 packs in parallell, ThunderPower 65C)I'm kind of convincednow the J-29 flying barrel model above would also fly as good as the Hunter with such setup:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0IdCO6nb0s

    The Hawker Hunter in the video has a weight of 16 kg (35 lbs).
    http://www.schuebeler-jets.com/en/ai...hunter-en.html

    In the photo gallery one can see two pictures of the fan installation in the Hunter:
    http://www.schuebeler-jets.com/en/ai...k-sonnier.html

    Schübeler DS-94-DIA HSThas a thrust range 100-130N and that is about exactly what is recommended for the J-29 model (since the turbines recommended are JetCraft J90+, JetCraft J130+).

    The J-29 model would probably be little lighter (12-14 kg / 26.5-30.9 lbs) then this Hawker Hunter 16 kg (35 lbs).

    Another rather convincing video, Italian C&C Models BAE Hawk that is about seize and weight(slightly smaller and probably little lighter) as a J-29:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srkDHNXt-BI
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5L83p-YZr8
    http://www.cmodels.it/modelli_jet/baehawk%20c&c.htm

    I did know it would not be cheap to get a model this seize airborne with fan solution but a turbine is not cheap either. One, at least me, would probably only afford one setup of batteries for suchairplane.

    What do You think - would You select a Schübeler DS-94-DIA HST with 14 cell Lipo for theJ-29 model? If not, why?

    If anyone has a suggestion for abetter fan then a Schübeler DS-94-DIA HST for a plane like the J-29 please post suggestion(s).

    Hi,

    I contacted Schübeler and they said DS-94 HST with DSM 6745-700 on 14S should be a good option for this J-29 flying barrel plane but they asked at the same time for the seize of in- and outlet on the plane so I will try to get info on that.

    Hi molo_30,

    J-29 flying barrel is perhaps not the prettiest plane, it was said it was "an ugly duck on the ground but a swallow in the air". But for me living in same country these J-29 was made and flown it is kind of the historic background also that makes it more interesting. I meet a person last spring that flew J-29 so there are still persons around that flew these planes in active service.

    Take a look at this link.

    It is for Kirk's large Hawker Hunter. PM the original poster (gunradd) and ask him for contact info for Kirk and speak directly to Kirk about performance. I also believe that he was at Jets over Kentucky (USA) this year so if you do a search on the event there are photos and might be a video of the plane flying on a Schubler 94HST on 14S. I saw a video and it was very impressive.

    How loud is the DS-94-HST? I am very close to purchasing one but am a bit concerned about sound levels.

    My new EXTREMEAlloy 127mm Ramtec fan will produce 22lb thrust on 14 cells, fan weight is 1080 grams all up with motor cover ready to install. May be an option to consider, the fan is $499.00 complete with motor ready to install. It runs an HET 800-73 series inrunner, extremely powerful and very efficient. I saw 21lb thrust with old 5000mah packs, 145A, with new larger capacity battery setup 22lb+ will be easy.
