Come on ET say what's really on your mind.
Ralf Dvorak BLASPHEMES! He has no respect for Pope Violus! He's all like "Permagrit is schissen! I have 28 different grades of PROPER Cherman zandpaper! Only this vay can you do really precize werks!"

"Bob Violett knows nothing about airfoils! I chop the wings off on my P80, his airfoils are sctupiden, he is tracing then off a filthy Dutchman's wooden shoe or something, I vill redesign this complete crapen airplane with proper airfoils, now!"

In the meanwhile, you can't help but notice that his OWN kit is called..."El Bandito." A miniature knockoff of the BVM Bandit!

Kind of reminds me of that old Bugs Bunny cartoon where he is stuffing his face with vegtables Elmer Fudd gave him, while complaining: "How do you expect me to eat this swill?"

Because that forum is mostly filled with people and planes that are in a different category from this one, and the people who are most interested in this plane are over here.
Why is this such a problem for people?

What silly snobbish attitudes are displayed here. My god, if all the hot air here was collected it would replace a turbine. This is the RC Jets forum. It doesn't say turbine, glow or EDF. I may try EDF in a 16 pound park flier and love every minute of it.

This Forum does state RC jets,turbine or ducted fans.The electric jet forum is a separate forum.If I remember right,users of this forum voted a while back to make it turbines with ducted fans,

AMA has defined parkflyers as under 32ozs!. 16 pounds will put in the real R/C jets realm. Beware of ozone from sparks....

Yes the electric jets forum although at a quick glance that seems more park fly oriented. Seems like this thread should be there. Might be a good idea to call this the turbine jets only.


smile and be happy

Would EVF 10s fly the Reaction 54 ?

If so, would special ducting be needed?

Vasek,
The BVM Eectric-VioFan (EVF) puts out about 16 lbs of thrust on a 10S Lipo setup. This is with the latest 9 blade rotor and special 12 stator system However, the rotor diameter is 4.6" and the outside housing measures about 5". The Reaction 54 will only accommodate a turbine or EDF of about 3.75" diameter in the space allotted for the engine- either EDF or turbine. Also, there is minimal fuselage space for the 10S or 12 S Lipo batteries required for the EVF. The Reaction 54 is better suited for a 80-90 mm fan and some modifications may be necessary to fit this smaller size EDF unit to the airframe. You may wish to check with Bruce Tharpe, the designer, at www.btemodels.com, to verify if an EDF unit has ever been fitted to the Reaction 54. Good luck on this.
Rgds,
