                  This is a classic "Old School" Electric Ducted Fan radio controlled airplane originally produced by RD Jets of Germany (Ralf Dvorak) . http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=792471#post8815299 It was purchased in kit form in 2004 and first flew about a year and a half later. It's had three power systems over the years to take advantage of contemporary advances in electric power available. The latest power system for the 10 year old El Bandito, is showcased here. The third EDF system is the most powerful. This routine was not planned and it shows (not great). It flies a bit differently now, with more capability so I'm still working on a routine that will maximize the presentation of her strong climb and the quiet yet powerful fan. Power System Specs: Midifan Evo rotor, Tamjets 90 shroud, 10s (40v) power and a Castle Creations HV120 ESC.

                    This video shows test Flights #3 and #4 on a highly modified, Hobby Top Gun F-100 Super Sabre RC electric powered ducted fan jet. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1322529 The first portion is a compilation of highlights from Flight #4. The flight was partially filmed and partially photographed and we did not have a full flight video, so it made sense to just edit in the highlights. That runs first, for viewing interest. Flight #3 was played nearly in entirety but long sections of boring flight action were edited out for viewing purposes. Flight #3 was a "trim" flight after changing some flight control mixes and neutral points. It was not that exciting to watch due to re-trimming required. The first landing attempt was a bit exciting though! My suspected reason for the over flare: The ailerons were raised in a "crow mix" to allow the wing to produce more drag for a steeper approach and lower the chance of the outer wings from stalling. In effect, the mix was too aggressive. I suspect there was a change in aerodynamic upwash / downwash at the outer wing panels, when in ground effect, and this changed the pitching moment of the wing to produce the un-commanded, dramatic pitch up in the landing flare. The subsequent landing was without the crow mix enabled, and a traditional approach, round out and flare resulted. More flight tests are required before I can consider the model "dialed in". This is pretty typical for a design like this, with highly swept wings, high power and heavy weight.

                    • Ta-152 FLIGHT DEMO / Model Sounds

                      This is a video letting you hear what an electric powered, radio controlled model WWII fighter sounds like, equipped with an electronic sound card that plays actual recordings of the engine type the real aircraft used (Jumo inline engine). More info at: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2085759 The engine sounds are tied to the throttle control and vary, in pitch and speed, along with power. The light weight, 15 volt battery used to power the sound system is shared with the aircraft receiver battery system (radio control unit) so no additional batteries are required. The single 4" speaker is mounted in the nose and it's weight is used as ballast, instead of lead weight, to properly balance the model. The 4 inch speaker is an excellent choice to deliver the bass tomes of the realistic, low pitch engine sounds. This is not at all as loud as the sound system can be; in fact, it is quite modest. However, the modest sound setup was chosen to reduce any excess weight required to carry a capable sound system, yet also deliver as much sound as possible and in the right audio tones, to represent the engine adequately. For those not familiar with this type of aircraft, it was a late derivation of the FW-190 "Fokke Wulf" the Germans flew in WWII. The official designation of this aircraft was the Ta-152 and it featured a stretched wing and fuselage with a new engine in order to improve the high altitude flight qualities needed to intercept Allied bombers late in the war. Needless to say (and thankfully so) it did not work as a strategy or tactic as they had too few of these Ta-152's and the Allies had too many bombers. The fate of the Third Reich was sealed despite very advanced flying machines the Germans were producing. In any regard, it's an interesting machine and engineering effort to replicate in a model aircraft.
