Ducted Fan (Jet)

Ducted Fan (Jet)

Ducted Fan, or more commonly nowadays, Electric Ducted Fan (EDF). These aircraft fly by taking in air from the front of the aircraft (via a ducted impeller) and then expelling it at high velocity from the rear of the aircraft. This is achieved by use of a brushless motor housed within the fan unit. You’ll need a good battery (we recommend Flightpower batteries for this application) and a strong Electric Speed Controller (ESC), but these aircraft will give you most of the fun elements of turbine aircraft, but at  1/10th to 1/20th of the cost.

The EP Jet Mirage DF45 offers a stunning moulded glass fibre fuselage with swept delta wing design, providing amazing flight performance in a practical size.

Kyosho’s many years of ducted fan design knowledge combines with the latest brushless motor and lithium polymer battery technology to realize a true dream machine. With a width of just 520mm, the advanced precision ducted fan unit built into the fuselage produces about 270g of static thrust. With a delta wing that generates excellent aerodynamics; realistic fighter plane performance is realized with the combined elevator and aileron control (elevon). In addition, the FRP fuselage and film covered balsa main wing, tail wing and canard (front wing) are almost completely pre-assembled. Only a few small assembly steps and servo linkage connection is required to get this delta-wing jet fighter airborne and ready for action.

An agile, easy-to-launch fun jet which can take a wide variety of power systems.

The model is intended for experienced model flyers, e. g. for pilots who can handle a TwinJet or similar without a problem. The FunJet is controlled with ailerons, elevator and throttle, and aerobatics such as rolls, inverted flight, loops etc. are well within its capabilities.

Fast, low passes in formation with 3, 4, 5 or even more models look simply terrific - and the sound is marvellous!

Features.

  • Typical jet-like flying characteristics
  • Aileron / elevator and throttle controls
  • Compact layout for ease of transport
  • Screw-fitting motor installation, infinitely variable motor thrustline
  • Short building time: no workshop required
  • Requires normal cyano adhesive and activator for construction.

Specs.

  • Wingspan 795 mm
  • Overall fuselage length 750 mm
  • All-up weight min. 550 g,
  • Wing loading 5 g/dm2

Turbine-powered model aircraft are steadily gaining in popularity, but many modellers are not prepared to pay the price of a small car to get one into the air.

The Twister is of Elapor foam construction, and gives you all the 'turbine' fun you could desire for little more than pocket-money.

Safe hand launching characteristics were an important requirement at the design stage. This is a characteristic which can by no means be taken for granted with EDF (electric ducted fan) models, but excellent results have been achieved by combining a low wing loading with a careful choice of wing section.

Although the Twister's flying characteristics are docile and the landing speed is low, the model is only suitable for pilots with some experience of similar models.

Designed, constructed and styled with one aim in mind.....performance! Identical airframe to the standard version but with a new fan and motor to explore 4 cell performance.

The sleek, precise, EPS foam mouldings and high quality hardware are exactly as you would expect from Phase 3 and assembly is both quick and enjoyable. Actually, a couple of hours would have it done. The sleek, delta wing design and careful use of the fuselage allows the Squall to explore its entire speed envelope with control and stability.

Even the surface finish has been optimised to enhance performance by keeping it as smooth as possible and small fairings are provided for each servo. The powerful elevons can roll the Squall at an amazing rate (aka a blurr!) and the ability to loop in its own length has to be seen to be believed. The added dimension of a rudder on the Squall opens up the possibility of some radical manoeuvres in yaw too. With that 4 cell power, vertical is almost unlimited and speed is mind blowing. You will need to be quick witted with this one!

The completely new fan unit, with 3 blade, 64mm impeller, 3400kv outrunner motor and 45A ESC deliver thrust at an amazing rate and power the Squall through some of the widest loops and wingovers you can imagine. It really is that good! It is recommended that you use a 2500mAh 30C battery (Impulse or Intellect) as a minimum, so that battery life is maintained when you're having that much fun. You might need more than one pack though, as the Squall is addictive! For those that can never have enough performance and really want to challenge their pilot skills, there is an optional Vectored Thrust unit. With power substantially over 1:1 you can be sure of enough thrust to do just about anything. Jet hovering anyone???
