Smile Turbine to EDF convert.

Another conversion in this crazzzzy World of Global fossil fuel histeria.LOL This time, 'kero to E-power".
Every picture tells the story.

10+ years as jet power.

Ripping it all out to replace with 10+ Kw 127mm/Big Screamer combo.

Forward power unit position.

New th/tube roll out.

Old fuel tank position now with the speedy.

Ripping out the heavy lead nose ballast.

First static check run.

AUW reduction mods.

Test proto created to sort out the CG.

2+ kilos heavier for landings.

Another great day, test flew the giant converted delta "Magenta", perfectly set up in regards to CG and power unit thrust, thanks to my trials with the small proto. Moving pretty nicely for a 12kilo mass but landing in dead calm needs lot longer and shallower approach, I almost run out of the strip, LOL! .Love it, heap of power.

Modified "Magenta' now as an EDF, in action.
