Congrats! - great effort, good to see some high-power edf's mixing it with turbines

When you're able can you please provide detailed specs on both aircraft set-ups? Always keen to see what others are running.

Regards, Frank

Hi: Frank

My F-15 has two 120mm EDF Jet Fan 12 cell setup per fan unit in it. I am not sure of the motor setup. ( I did not build the F-15)
On the F-15 I use:
Two China Line Hobby 6 cell 6000mah 70C Lipo packs per Fan unit. 4 battery packs total. (9 lbs of batteries )
I run two 3 cell 2200mah lipo packs for the RX. One battery is a onboard backup.

Hi: Frank

In the F-14, I run Two 120mm ChanSung EDF units. ( 12 Lbs of thrust each)
The F-14 Ready to fly is 36 LBS
I run two 6 cell 6000mah 100C lipo packs per fan unit. a total of 4 battery packs.
Each fan unit will give me 12 LBS each.
I have a 3 cell 2200 lipo pack for the RX.
I also us a 2 cell 2200 Lipo pack for the Old Heavy Yellow Aircraft Wing swing Servo.
The photo will show the fan unit set up info.

Thanks
Wayne
