Thread: Which jet is the fastest...pure speed?

  1. #1

    Which jet is the fastest...pure speed?

    I have had a few EDF's now. They ranged in speeds from 50-80mph. For my next jet, I want something fast. I would prefer it to hit well over 100 mph on any given day. I only use high discharge batteries, so that is not an issue. Our runway is grass, so I prefer hand launch unless it can handle grass well. Doesn't matter if it has thrust vectoring. I would prefer it, but speed is my main goal for this jet. Which is the fastest jet that you guys carry?

    Thanks,
    Bobby

    Hi Bobby,
    The fastest stock edf jet we carry is the F-18. Don't install the tanks and stuff for less drag. It's a little over 80MPH stock. Hope that helps.

    Thanks jason,

    I will pick one up and maybe try to lighten it a bit.

    Has anyone tried a higher cell count with corresponding esc? Just curious if the motor and fan could handle it.

    Motor and fan won't handle more than 6S. Higher C rated packs will provide slightly more power though. You could take out the landing gear and loose a good bit a weight there. I've hand launched mine before and it was no problem.

    Did you consider putting in a higher kv motor. The faster the fan spins the more speed.
