Default Hawker Hunter Video

We had a club meeting at the field today. After the meeting, I flew the Hunter for it's third flight. Here's the video.

That went very well. That is some serious battery pack you have in there

Kirk you did a fantastic job on this Hunter. This really shows that EDF pushing new boundaries all the time.
Is that 29lb of thrust, an installed thrust figure or was it measured on a bench test?

Thanks TimWatson, Duke, Simon, FMRR, and Joe.

Duke, I miss hanging with you, Tim, and the guys.

Simon, the 29 pounds of thrust are Schubeler's bench test numbers. Having owned a P-120SE in a YA F-15, I can tell you the DS-94 installed in the Hunter is pushing harder than the P-120SE.
