RCPowers F117 Converted to EDF - RC EDF Jet

Vince put this baby together and is it cool!... A bit of a work in progress, but I think a bit bigger EDF motor and this baby will fly sweet!!!!

Not bad but, First of all running with a foamy, or throwing it real hard
isn't going to work. if the plane has enough power for flight then an easy
toss, slightly upward from level will work best! because it's an EDF you
can hold it like your first guy did, but toss it easy with full throttle!
you can also hold it by the wing out beside you and give it a swinging
level toss with a bit of up angle! You're not trying to throw this
thing for distance, just trying to get it in the air and pointed in the
right direction! If it has the right amount of power for it's weight IT
SHOULD FLY out of the launchers' hand! It looks like you have plenty of air
intake there, but you may have to much restriction at the rear, not
allowing the thrust to push easily out of the back! Second the size of your
F117 because of that particular jets' design may not give you enough wing
area for the EDF setup, since you killed that one, and it's foam, and they
are pretty quick to build, size up your plans a little bit and you should
have enough wing area to carry your EDF really well. it sounds like you've
got plenty of power there! With a bit more wing area that EDF should use
more of its thrust toward speed than just trying to keep the plane in the
air! That one seems to require more speed because of its limited surface
area! Those things were built for stealth, and don't have a lot of
aerodynamic qualities that other Jets did! They just look cool, but are
very Unstable! Keep up the good work! You'll get it to fly! P.S. sizing it
up a bit will add very little weight, because it's foam, that whole jet
without the electronics might weigh 10-12ozs. you could build it 100%
bigger and it will float through the air and be much more stable and easier
to handle! I look forward to your next video, and I'm subscribed! :)

Author er2015af (4 years)
looks like there's not enough air going into it. I know the side scoops
have a vent to cool the electronics, but that hole in the top is'nt really
letting much air in. It won't look good, but if you want it to fly, try to
cut the foam in front of the fan. that's more than enough power.

your buddy who trows the plane has to do a better job. Try to launch the
plane by holding it at the side of the wing and then you can trow it way
more dynamically into the air! see the video of rc powers...! good luck

@RcWorld7 maybe if he had watched the show more the plane would have flown
better lol

Author youronlycow (2 years)
but why would you convert the prop to edf?

Author hillock10 (3 years)
A possible problem is that the EDF is not pointed downward; thus the thrust
line is driveing the plane downward. Try fixing the EDF 3-5 degrees in the
down direction for level flight.

Author RCllamadude (2 years)
actually, the shape and design of the f-117 was almost entirely dictated by
trying to be stealth. it is not maneuverable at ANY speed, and is a pain in
the ass to land. it is one of the worst flying planes ever. (the real one,
not the rcpowers version.)

Not enough thrust,

Author Mamosh88 M88 (1 year)
This thing is under powered, and that was the main reason it didnt flow
well, everything else, the c´g and el. throw was fine, just under powered,
but it was funny yes, when the Guy said you need to close that so you
can.....hehe That shows us that reall knowlage is always the key to
success, Dont let them force feed you all...:-)!!!

Author 0917bobb (1 year)
'Too much air intake for it', that was almost funny. :) I saw that one
person commented about the hole on the top but I don't think that this is
the primary problem, look at how many planes have cheater holes on the
bottom so having it on the top is not the primary problem. From what I can
see the exhaust is a little cramped. You can suck in all of the air that
you want but if the exhaust is restricted it is not going anywhere

Author YoungGhost (4 years)
@XxstryaexX1 yea I know

Author Chris Holub (4 years)
yeah your not getting enough thrust. 4500KV should give you plenty I would
think but if the opening in the rear is big then yeah close some of it off
to get more of a nozzle effect.
