Default Turning a EDF Jet into a xstream Prop Plane

Ok, I have done the edf gig for some time, but Im not a huge fan, as flight time, lipo life are all to short.

I do love my larger 120mm edf jets but im looking for a smaller prop jet that will fit in my truck with my Gaint Scale war birds,

So im looking for something in the Hanger 9 Jackel size range.

Unforuntily you cant get a Jackel unless you pay $65 for shipping.

So I have really fallen in love with the HET Mig 29 twin size EDF Jets http://www.highendrc.com/index_eprod...roducts_id=125 or the ProDesigne F18http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__15524__F_18_EDF_90mm_Jet_Fiberglass_920mm_ARF_.h tml

I think these 2 would make great prop convershions.

Are there any other ARF Jet you would recomend?

I sure they would fly faster with the EDF inside, but I think I can make them much lighter with a good prop and smaller lipo set up, and make them hand launchable.

As both these are fiberglass fuse I think putting the electic motor upfront will be quite easy, and make the large panels in the bottom for lipos if needed.


What you guys think?
