    RE: Two 1/4 scale Scratch built T-38's

    ORIGINAL: Ram-bro

    glad to see that I am not the only who thinks these planes could use a lil more push. One of the problems could be it is just to light for its size and lacks a little inertia.
    I think each T-38 was about 40ish, that's just too much for EDF power [&o].

    Just my opinion

    I think that there are several guys out there that would disagree with that - especially since they were twins. With the right fan/battery combo, guys like Kirk could probably get them up to close to 1/1 power-to-weight. They might have been too much for two 90 - 110mm fans though...

    Both looked underpowered and poorly flown. Best wishes on rebuilds.

    That's a little harsh. Remember, these are scratched built and newly flown aircraft. Maiden flights on ARF jets can be challenging.

    Both of these guys knew that they were pushing the envelope with the size and scale of these projects. But they wanted to bring something special to the Electric event here in Vegas. As far as I am concerned it was mission accomplished. We can debate about different power systems and faster Jets, what these guys accomplished was simply amazing and they brought us along for the ride. Watching Andy's build thread was inspirational and informative, these new techniques will advance the hobby. thanks for watching the video, and im sure that we have not seen the last of these jets.[8D]
