Yes it did fly a few times but there is no video unfortunately.

It needed pretty much full power on the Kolibri to be comfortable. Whether this was due to the weight/drag, low power of the Kolibri, or just my perception I'm not sure. Other than that it flew ok. I was quite surprised that the little E-Flite gear coped so well on a hard runway even with the relatively high weight.

After a few flights the Kolibri was sold and I retired the airframe. It was a fun little project though.

I know if you went with a small turbine for this Jetmach sport E you would want as large a servo as you could get on all the surfaces but for a straight up jetmach Elect with a 70 mil fan wouldn't a Eflight S-75 with 18/20 oz be enough on this jet? What are the few that's built the Elec one running for servos? Thanks

siclick33, I know this is an old post but I was wondering what size Kolibri you put in your Jetmach e. I have a buddy who is thinking of doing this as a project.

I was going to do one as an EDF.

Thanks
