A nicely scaled and unusual old-war fighter jet with brushlessEDF system. The HE-162 EDF jet comes 97% pre-built and includes a powerful 30A brushless electric ducted fan system and steerable nose wheel. This well detailed jet uses a 64mm ducted fan unit to provide fast throttle response.
die He-162 war so schwer zu fliegen, dass sie ihren Piloten die Nerven stahl, was man auch mit klauen beschreiben kann. Der Jet ist also ein Typ, der den Piloten im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes die Nerven klaute. Ein Pilot des 1/JG. hatte das auf seiner Maschine stehen. Manche behaupten, dass wurde erst nach dem Krieg dazu geschrieben, da auf den letzten Photos der Jets auf dem Leck-Flughafen die Beschriftung nicht vorhanden war.
oh man...das ist peinlich! Du hast absolut Recht! War mir echt nicht bekannt, dass das auf der He 162 stand, habs gerade nachgelesen! Danke Dir fü*r den Hinweis!
*all Just to my last response with the "Nervenklau", i was wrog! thx to user joe54. he told me, that it was in fact printed on a He 162!
i want to get the he-162. i now have a pay pal account. i need to place second order and pay for it. the first one i had to cancel due to stupid computer, and your system not taking my information. please help.

thompson77 it is in every other warehouse why not yours??? The only way to get this done is to place a request in ISSUE tab above or go to: Contacts then: Support then: raise a Ticket. I hope this helps.
Finally I have bought this plane. The problem now is that the battery connection of the plane doesnt fit with my batteries (which have XT60 connection). Would somebody be so kind to tell me the connector/plugs that I have to buy? (I dont know the name of the planes battery connection.
It's more personal preference than anything else. I use deans and every time I get a new plane or battery, I solder in a new plug if necessary. But there really isn't a standard, but there is just a trend. The xt60 for example, is the new trend. Let your battery stock dictate what to use. If you have all one kind, then stick with it. As far as the names, go through the section and match the image as they7 may call it something different that what you may know it as.
I couldn't agree more with Rondald007, it is more personal preference, I did early this year make all mine Denes and have stuck by it and just soliderd any thing that wasn't denes to denes when i got em, its good idea to just buy a whole bag of denes(XT60)s online and keep em handy, end of the day it really isn't much trouble to soidler them on^^
I agree to universalize your fleet, with an exception: I utilize the smaller futaba-style red connectors on my 2s stuff, and on my 3s and 4s stuff I use the xt60 connectors, so I don't mix them up. On some 2s planes, 3s can smoke an esc. I guess the key is, develop a plan, and stick to it. Oh, and in this hobby, get good at soldering! Be aware of what you are doing, and do NOT short across leads, or solder a reverse-polarity plug.
Hi guys. Altrhough I have experience with RC planes, I am new on electrical planes (which means I am absolutely idiot about electricity). I like this He-162. What battery would you reccomend me to put on it?.
I removed the landing gear and nose steer servo which easily allows an 1800mah 3s to be used when pushed all the way back. Without the landing gear the weight and drag saved make the larger battery quite a nice easy upgrade to performance.
I was wondering about the wing mounting on this plane, I'm sure that with a good glue it will be fine but was thinking that adding a CF spar through the fuselage and 2-3" into each wing might not be a bad idea.
Check out the build review on R.C. Groups www.link how to fit in a C/F spar into the wing and also how to get more thrust out of the EDF unit by fitting a narrower thrust tube. This makes for excellent hand launches and you can then save weight by ditching the landing gear.
I did exactly what you suggested - add a 1mm x 4mm spar directly under the servo wire line poking about 8cm into the wing. I sharpened the ends into a point and simply pushed them in. I then sanded the wing roots and tips to remove paint and used 5 minute epoxy to glue the wings into place. I think I gained 5 grams or so doing this however the wings are now very solid for aerobatics.
I used 30min expoy on all my EDF jets, including this one, 30min is perfect, throwing the HE 162 through loops and spins etc, doesn't even flex and i been doing that on same HE for about 5 months now and still prestine ^^
This looks interesting exept I'm alergic to EDF. Too many trees and not enough sky in my park. The prototypes were meant to be simple to fly for "rooky" pilots, but that hardly seams likely to have been the case. Hard to train or test fly once you've lost air superiority over your country.I wounder if anyone survived ejecting from this or the Do335. Anyone got video of this model in action?
If you are hgoing to be carying planes with that fan (EDO 64) you should cary rotors or spare fans. I comes in th eprofile jets with a 4600kv and I was only getting 1.5-2 hours out of a rotor. That setup made enough power and the clolets make them easy to change as long as I could order spares i wouldnt care if i had to change them. This has a 4300 so the might hold up better.
The foam looks like EPS but feels somehow tougher. A nice feature is that the nacelle is mounted with two screws and has a removeable panel on the bottom for access to the fan / motor, great for servicing.
Nicely made, and a good value. Tracked straight, good power on stock setup... looked like a winner until I tried to turn or change power... I'm sure its just me, but after to big crashes, I just can't fly this thing after take off. I could hand launch it or ROG no problem, but any change in throttle caused wild pitch changes. I tried cg mods, but just can't get it to fly right. Anybody figure this one out? If so, what is your cg from the inboard leading edge of the wing? I'll try another one if I can figure it out....
Nicely made, but like spinetti says, it tracked straight although with a nose up attitude. Tried some down-trim on the elevator and that helped some (although it makes the elevator create lift in itself and that is not good). I also experienced the wild pitch changes when changing the throttle setting, but found out after the first crash tha I had to put in a other type of receiver. That helped, but it did still have som nasty tendencies. Also the same nose up attitude. I won't bother to try flying it again,and suspect that the real cause for wild pitcihing (glitch) is noise from the regulators switching circuitry . Toss the regulator away before you try to fly this plane, and do a chekc of the wing-taiplane angles.
I will try building a new airplane from scratch in my own design.
The pitch changes during throttle changes is due to areodynamics, the fan blows directly over the elevator and affects it's lift, you need to make smooth power changes. I have flown mine twice now and the only concern I have had was the extremely fast roll rate. I have set my D/R to 60% for aileron to compensate. This plane also slows down nicely into the wind for landing, much better than I expected.
The pitching is actually got everything to do with the relatively high position of the EDF motor's thrust in relation to the wings. The moment force of sudden throttle changes causes the pitching effect.
You can try this yourself: hold the model in your hand and give it a sudden 100% throttle - you will notice that the model will want to nose down.
Fortunately this moment force is lessened in direct relationship with airspeed. Once at speed this force will be almost negligible.
The lesson is that you should not make sudden throttle changes at low airspeed, especially if hand launching.
It is a great looking jet.Good quality. Not for a beginner.Use only good quality lipos with enough power....watch the CG of the plane .When it is well balanced flies great !

Add 50mm to motor leads refit ESC down into radio hatch cover, cut out retangular hole to fit heatsink into cut out facing the slipstream this allows full opperation with out overheat cut outs Mine is flying with a 1300MaH 3s 20c Zippy GWS po3 gyro(cause I had one)this gives good 5min flights and powerd landings awesome little plane

Kudos to Starmax for such an unusual EDF. Very nicely done in all respects. I found the supplied motor/esc combo to be of good quality and to produce adequate flight characteristics. I upgraded to a Turnigy 2815/4800 edf and a small 3S 2200Mah lipo which balanced out perfectly. Nosegear wire too soft for grass, removed gear and handlaunched-don't recommend. Very stable flight characteristics when balanced at factory setting.

Looks and flies great.. ESC needs to be kept cool ! nosewheel strut could be stronger,as it bends too easily.. powered landings are are best.. overall, a good model

Nice plane, nicely built and a decent flyier - however! upgrade ESC or make sure it is kept cool. My ESC died in air = plane died too! :(
