Default F-22 Raptor thrust vectoring scratch built twin ducted fan jet

I just threw this together a few days ago. Pretty fast with good vertical performance. Only uses two servos. Each servo is connected to an aileron and elevon.

FREE PDF plans for this jet will be available in the near future from
www.mikeysrc.com

The jet uses;
Twin GWS 64mm EDF units
2 4400kv brushless motors from hobbycity
2 9 gram TowerPro servos from hobbycity
2 40 amp ESC speed controllers from hobbycity
Ideal battery is 2 1300mAh 20 11.1V batteries. BUT 1250mAh - 1800mAh also worked.

Flight times range between 5-7 minuets depending on how much of a speed freak you are =)

Plane flys great. Loved the puppet. Profile twin EDF is different. Can't believe nobody else has told you good job.

Thanks Alpea42,

I really appreciate those kind words and thank you for checking out the video. I just bought a HD video camera to take better flight videos.

Cheers,

Hey R/C plane videos are not easy to make. It's a small fast moving subject very difficult to follow. I saw you did alotta editing on your video. Where you junked most all the footage but the fly bys. That takes some editing skill too.
