So to kick things off with interest...how about an EDF unit with 50lb thrust!! Crazy to think possible a few years ago.

OK, more.
Turbo prop with 5 blade prop-pulls a 22kg model vertical!

That EDF unit is unbelievable! Amazing to think that an electric system can put out that much power!

They just need to get the all up weight down a bit now, and improve the flight times... :think:

But like you say, watch this space ;)

Now the turboprop...that is just pure porn! :drool:

Yep, come a long way. Quiet and sounds like a turbine! With 20,000 mAh you get 8 minutes, it's just the £1700 a pack that chokes. As a set up its more than double an equivalent turbine, since you need 3 sets of cells and an incredible charging system!
