Its hard to make a recommendation when we don't know what size the plane is or any other info besides that you have a F-14.

we used to put 2 dynamax 5.25 glow fans in those. os 91, real good flyers.
dennis crooks had one that he competed with in scale masters back in the late 80s early 90s.

might wana look at the new electrified dynamax fan the guy in indiana is making.
look foor a thread about the 11 bladed beast from indiana over at rcg in the edf forum.

No way - To big, too much money, and too amp hungry.

Go with 2 TJ-100 fans from Tam. Just look in the jet section and watch his 14 lbs yellow F-16 go like stink.
Or go with 2 stu max fans. Awsome preformance and sound!

Neither will be cheap. Just one flight will cost you upwards of $1200.00 for just the batteries.

contact tam....skyhawknut is rite. tam is doing lots of ducted fan conversions with the tj100 fan that are vary sucsesful. he's even doing my bandit rite now for a conversion from turbine. i think twin tj100 will work fine if you build the plane light weight. i would love to have a twin electric tomcat that size.

Gents,

I finally found an F-14 forum where I can find some info. I have a similar dilemma as skyracer32738. I have a 1/9 scale YA F-14 that I will be installing 2 Artes JF-50 super bees. The problem I have is that Yellow has discontinued the model and they dont have the instruction manuals for the model. Im 60 to 70% completed with the model but I need some good Instructions to complete the model. If theres anyone out there that can help I will really appreciate it.

Here's my email. [email protected]

Thank you again for the help

Joe
