Default RC LANDER PANTHER F9F PANTHER ENGINE ?

Nitro Planes has the RC Lander "F9F Panther" with the 68mm metal Ducted fan installed. Which brushed motor would be best for this application? I'm thinking a 400 size Mega 16/15/1 @ 9000KV , a Mega 16/15/2 @ 4800KV , a Little Screamer 28mm 4000KV Outrunner or perehaps an E-Flight 480?

I would put only a inrunner in it and balance it all. Trust me if you don't it will bend the motor shaft very fast at half throttle. A3575 kv is good to go make sure the can is 28mm and you can put just about any thing you want in there. Do they sell the RClander motors on that site? If not go to toysonics.com he has them at a good price too. Good luck and have fun and enjoy. I have the hunter hawker too.

Thank You. No Nitro planes does not seem to sell the motors. I could use a Hoffman Beast 4200Kv on RC-castle site.
What kind of can inrunner did you use in your panther Mega?, and why not use an outrunner?

Because it won't spin inside of the motor mount with end part on it and inrunner are much faster. Go to toysonics.com and see his site he has the hoffman too and the rc lander motors. I think the lander motors are smoken fast I use the 3575 kv and it does just fine in the panther, but if you can afford the hoffman go with that one. Are you running a 4 or 6 cell set up on the batteries? My F9 is 4 cell and the Hunter is a 6 cell, tomorrow is her maiden keep your fingers crossed. She has the full suspension aluminum lander gear and EDFunit too.

Where did you purchase your Panther RC -Castle or Nitro Planes? How is the foam construction? Do you have the EPS coated version? Does it have flaps? Do flaps really work to slow down the jet?
Let me know tomorrow what happens.

I had to laugh when I saw your EDF picture, not that anything is wrong, we just think alike...

I purchased the aluminum EDF fan from Nitroplanes w/o the motor ( since they are out of the complete units )...

And I added an identical motor, same color, etc. from HobbyKing.

I haven't flown it yet, but I did balance and static test it, and I'm happy with the results thus far.

What size/torque and quantity of servos is required for each of the Hunter and the Panther ??? Are the retracts supplied aluminum by default ?

Go to www.rc-castle.com and they have all the options on the Lander Panther. There are many many ARF models options to choose from on this site. Also, if you don't want to build this Panther, go to www.turbofanelectrics.com . They have Plug and Play Lander Panthers with retracts and supplied lipo options. A full option kit will cost $370.00 USD. All you need is your raido system.

***FYI, I would hold off until next month in purchasing the older F9Fs because RC-Lander will be coming out with their new 70mm "F9F-8 Cougar" AND a "Mig-17" Jets!! www.rclander.com. Oct-Nov. release date.
