One of my friends had a ducted fan electric power and it was a noisy thing. It did not fly that fast but that all depends on the battery and motor as you know. He ended up slamming it into someone's roof when one of the servo's went out. Good thing no one was home at the time. That is one of our concerns when we get these newbies coming out there and flying over peoples homes. :devil:
I do alot of things other than :ride: my :ride:. Ive been flying RC and driving RC off and on for 20 years or so. I started out with nitro powered stuff. This will be my first electric powered airplane. Its not really big. Its only got a 29 inch wing span, by 43 inch long. It should move out pretty quickly, as it has a 70mm ducted fan with a 2836 KV brushless outrunner motor. But because its a ducted fan it wont be very quiet compared to a propeller driven electric. But I does have retracts, and can be hand launched and belly landed on the grass. Im thinking about getting a glider high start to help assist with hand launches.

Ive flown in my neighbor hood before. But its not something I like to admit too. This new toy of mine will only get flown at the high school football practice field, the vacant lot next to the warehouses down the street aways. Or at the approved AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautic) sanctioned RC field just over the hill behind my house. Only problem with using the RC field is that I am not currently an AMA member any more. But having the insurance that comes with being a member is a nice plus.
 
I wonder if that whole body is a gas tank? Man the mileage he could get if that is. REZ, you need a tank like that on ED you could surely get to Husky and back :smirk:
