Default "f-4, phantom"



Last week I was offered this brand new EDF, partly assembled by someone who obviously didn't have a clue what he is getting into. For a bargain or fraction of the replacement cost I couldn't refuse despite I never like the way it is build. Heavy as a brick for its size, I'll do it my way to make most of it.

New toy.



AIL and Flaps set up.


Fine tuning of the power unit.


Replacement of the stock ESC for larger Opto unit.

Do you think you could convert that to one of the new smaller Kingtech Turbines and get more out of it than EDF?

Sure, anything can be converted to turbine, but I will get lot more out of it as an EDF flying-wise. BTW, this is EDF Forum.

EDF is the way to go in my opinion. Easy to transport, no fuel required, no waiver required to fly EDF in the USA. EDF's are reasonably fast and sound awesome.

I got enough turbines in my fleet, prefer to stick them in decent size model than little piddle like this "F-4". Just plug it in and way you go, I use EDFs as trainers for the real things.

Same weight as my larger foamy so I reduced the weight by wing tips mod.


More practical size for turbine.
