Yes, the Projeti is a nice flying little delta wing. The speed is much better than most foam type wings and it is very stable even though it has a small wingspan. It also slows down nice for just cruising around the sky at half throttle. My friend had one of the first Projeti's out at the field and he let me fly it. I had so much fun I didn't want to give the transmitter back to him. The nice thing is that it flies well on just a S400 motor and even better with a cheap brushless system.

Hi Troy,
Thanks for the reply, I'm just new to the electric scene and have just been very dissapointed with a Great Planes Firebat ! 2 flights 2 crashes they just don't seem to want to fly !! it's now in about 100 small foam pieces after I gave it to my 4 year old daughter to play with. My first choice was going to be a projeti too, should have gone with that 1st !!

It seems I'm not alone in my experinece with the Firebat, not wanting to give up as I've just started I want to get a Projeti next.

I'd like to recycle the Firebats 400 motor and ESC 10 amp, they should work in the Projeti right ? I have an 8 cell 11Mah batt and two 8 cell 700Mah they should also be OK ?

Can you tell me what your'e using.
Are you getting over 5 minute flight times ?
Thanks.
Mel.

I've got about 10 flights on my Projeti now (my 1st electric) and I love it. Dittos on the nice speed, good slow speed , and smooth handling. Loops and rolls nice on Zagi $8 400 and 8cell 500/600s.

...i think to get the Twin-Jet as fast as the Projeti w/3 turn Mega requires 2 brushless and two controllers - very pricey!...

My Projeti will be in the air soon.

Aveox 27/13/3
Phonex 25 ESC

It should scream!

P.S. From what I have read do set up your elevons correctly for takeoff. The Projeti has a habit of being hard to launch if you don't. The instructions tell you how.

Guys - where's the cheapest price for the reno (red) projeti? Or, anyone have one for sale? I'm dying to put my brushless on it.

If I am correct, RCU member GaryB was one of the first to use the Mega 16/15/3 motor on a ProJeti. Is that you Gary?

Check out the bottom of my Wings page for my 100mph ProJeti set up using the Mega 16/15/3 motor. This plane was flown at last years NEAT Fair and turned many heads.

There is no difference between the three. The graphics are all that is different. We have three motors to choose from now as well. The standard 400, the long can 400 and brushless. I'd really like to get a radar gun on the brushless Projeti.

...yep, first part of April, 2002 - thanks to RealDeal - i'd read about the Megas on Ezone - RealDeal was flying his Projeti with an Aveox 3 turn - i asked for Mega recommendations (read good things about them on Ezone) - he said the 3 turn should be it - called Kirk @ New Creations - he said he'd been thinking about becoming a Mega dealer and decided to go ahead...

...Projeti w/Mega 3 turn - highly recommended combo! - i need to order #3 - the first one was a bad hand launch - be sure and balance EXACTLY! on the included balance points (inverted) - #2 was even more stupid - the BEC kicked in at a bad time (i would have had to walk a ways to retrieve it) - there was zero wind and i put it into too steep of a bank to circle around and stalled it in - it was easily fixed & you could hardly tell it'd been repaired -but on the 3rd flight after the crash the wing folded at both sides of the fuse - must have been a few cracks there that i didn't notice...

Hi Gary,

I updated my Wings page to add my re-build with the new 1950FAUP NiMH cells. These cells easily outperform the CP1300 NiCd cells that we were using.

Peter,

Use 10-cells that can handle a 15amp current delivery and the Graupner 5.5x4.5 CAM Speed prop.

For my review, I used a 10-cell, 500AR NiCd pack.

Regards.
