Kyosho EP Jet Illusion DF45 Ducted Fan Airplane (Blue)
The dream of electric ducted fan flight has now come true. Powerful flight in a convenient size!
This high performance ducted fan airplane proves sophisticated high-tech mechanics can be easy and fun to use. Kyosho's many years of ducted fan airplane design experience and the latest brushless motor technology launches a new era in flight performance. The 300g of ultra-lightweight kit with beautifully fiberglass fuselage contains a built-in micro ducted fan unit that delivers awesome propulsion to fly exciting stunts such as loops and rolls. This almost fully assembled airplane requires only a few steps to complete assembly and linkage setup so you can experience the thrill of realistic jet flight.
- Removable canopy (with screw) allows fast battery changes and easy access to servo linkages.
- One-piece motor case and fan. Uniquely designed fixed stator blades and back cone produce high thrust despite their small size.
- Rear fuselage features built-in lightweight ducted fan unit. Exquisitely designed air intakes contribute greatly to the high thrust generated.
- Balsa rib tail wing is pre-covered in film. Simply fix to the fuselage to Complete assembly.
- 3-channels for elevator, aileron and motor control.
- Winglets on main wing produce a lift drag ratio to match the large aspect ratio of the main wing. Difficult to stall and realizes stable flight.
- Newly developed factory assembled FRP fuselage is both lightweight and strong.
- Brushless motor and fan combine in a one-piece high-efficiency fan unit that produces 270g of thrust.
- One-piece shroud's brushless motor generates 50,000 RPM of pulling power.
- Compact size of the ducted fan unit fits neatly inside the sharp shape of the fuselage.
- 11.1V-700~910mAh lithium polymer battery produces more than enough power.

I ran it on a TP1320 and I reckon it was clocking 120+Kmh. Unfortunately an aileron let go and my beautiful rocket became a drill bit...into the ground...totalled!...174.99 plus shipping, gone...sigh.
Reinforce the control surfaces!
And have a blast!!!
I'll buy another. Might wait till the price drops a little ;))
