Electric Jet

My First Electric Jet

This model was design many years ago before electric ducted fan models could be purchased.  The airframe is of built up balsa while the fan unit is home made as well.  The rotor was taken from a computer cooling fan.  I spun the fan with a Astro Flight 035 Cobalt motor.  The model flew very well but would fly much better with a modern fan system.  This summer I installed a cheap commercial brushless fan system on the model, this along with modern day Lipo batteries has turned this nice flying model into a great flying model.
