Dassault Alpha Fighter 90mm Ducted Fan EPO Plug-n-Fly
Highly scaled, large size aerobatic fighter jet with a big 90mm EDF system. The Alpha EDF jet comes 97% pre-built and includes a powerful 80A brushless 90mm EDF system and steerable nose wheel with Retractable landing gears. This well detailed and strikingly painted jet uses a 90mm ducted fan unit to provide fast throttle response and a high top speed. This model has many special features, such as operational landing gears, flaps for great slow-speed handling. There are 8 servos installed, All servos are of very high quality, providing smooth movement of all control surfaces. The ducted fan is dynamically balanced and the canopy is easily removed to change batteries between flights. This is an exciting looking big size EDF model that will impress everyone at your next club meeting!
The Alpha comes 95% completed and will take around 1hr to attach wings and fuselage, insert power system and connect electronics.
Anyone actually using the 1850kv Warhead motor in this plane with stock fan?
My plane is on the way and I have a new warhead motor and 125 Redbrick waiting. I'm just concerned about the pitch of the blades and how much load will be on that motor trying to pull air thur the non conventional style ducting.
Have you guys read the reviews on this jet. its nice awesome jet. But 2 out 3 reviews said the esc puff up in somke. I want to know clearly why does this happen before I go ahead to put this in my cart!
I have been flying mine for almost a year on stock electronics with no problems. I enlarged the cooling air inlet to about twice the original size - same for hot air exit point. The plastic housings on the retracts is a weak point, I removed the gear, filled the holes and attached plywood skids for bungee launch and belly landing.
Maumy it is NO wonder. it is a 90 mm EDF with a big motor pushed hard. The 80 AMP ESC would be find for a Sunday drive but we are going F1 racing. So it needs a 100amp esc to give a bit of freedom to run HARD. Or a better EDF setup like a Turnigy. I hope this helps.
thankyou Mr.Sujit Hait,i also send a massage to you on ***********consumercomplaints.in/. brother can you call me on 0096893560129 i dont know any thing about this plane and any r.c toy this is my first time in my life to buy a plane.and pls tell me which bettery for this plane pls pls Mr.Sujit Hait help me.
Sorry brother i can't call you.You can email me on-sujithait*hotmail**** or ani.hait*gmail****.
It need 3700mah 22.2V 6S 20C battery. But brother, I use Turnigy 4000mAh 6S 20C Lipo Pack (id-T4000.6S.20)it best for you& your plane. okay
Im a newbie myself so This is just a suggestion, and I have crash a few jets already. If this is your first time ever to get in to R C I sugest dont get this jet. You should try out the propella plane first a trainer like a bixler or the AXN. but if you want to put your 200 buck down the drain by all means go a head and get this jet. because jets are not for Newbies.
you need a 6 channel or better radio to use all features on this airplane
here are the channels
4. rudder/steerable nosewheel
6. retractable landing gear
technically, you could get away with 4 channels if you locked the gear in the extended position, and disconnected the flaps and landing gear, buth then it would not be as much fun
That's the trouble with trying to keep things scale. It definately would work better on most surfaces with bigger wheels but it would look wrong and the scale look is why people want these sort of models.
I've got their Panther ducted fan and I've tried to keep it as authentic looking as I can with the exception of removing all the landing gear so I can belly land it plus it's now lighter and less drag. But if you're more interested in flying ability than looks there's better choices than scale models here.
If this is the same as the Starmax 90mm - they showRadio System: 6Ch Tx and 6 Ch Rx,
Eight 9 gram servos and Three 17 gram metal geared servos,
Brushless motor and 80A ESC,
Battery: 6 Cell Li-Po Battery,3700 mAh,22.2V
do you have this plane in the USA I could not find it there? OK guys I returned after a whole year off from, ordering anything from HK, lets see, looks like you have your act in order, this time with me got some e-mails that my orders are shipped.
The videos on Utube are awsome and this cooks compared to the 70mm. Just do r2 time pie on 70mm verses 90mm and see the area difference
Motor packed up on maiden flight . Big puff of smoke on take off and into two pieces. Tested ESC with diff motor and works fine ... Not happy.........................

Came nicely packed without damage. Very easy build..took about 3-4 hours. Landing gear requires abit of adjusting but seems to work ok...not sure how long it will hold up tho.
On the maiden flight the motor packed it in at about 3 mins into the flight. I never used the stock esc, I switched it to the red brick 125 opto and run a 2s 1700 reciever pack off a BEC. The plane took off very nicely and had ok power. No trimming was needed at all and the recommended CG points are dead on the money. The Alpha seems to have no bad habits and was very predictable to fly with full throws and 30pcnt expo. It could probably use just a tad more elevator so I'm bumping it up to 115pcnt. The plane has a very good glide rate...which I had to find out the hard way...but I was able to get it back from a long ways out and put it nicely on its belly on the grass. No damage to the plane at all! Over all I'd say a good buy but don't use the stock esc or motor. The same motor I've seen offered on other models but only rated to 5s. In the description here the plane is recommended to use a 6S batt...I think it's only a 5S motor as the screws were melted into the housing telling me the motor was way too hot...and it was minus 2 the day I flew it.
