An excellent parkflyer sized EDF foamie (EPS).
The Rafale EDF jet comes 97% pre-built and comes with a powerful 30A brushless EDF system steerable nose wheel.

Bel avion, facile monter... Cependant, il y a un petit dfaut : La direction et la roulette avant sont inverse. Je vais essayer de faire une modification de l'avion pour remdier ce dfaut, mais tel quel, il y a effectivement un dfaut.A great edf trainer, can fly nice and slow will no vices. Need to get comfortable with bank and yank flying style (like a flying wing). I put a 40amp ESC and run it with a 4C 1600mah which hoots along. Its awesome! Recommend a paint scheme change to top or underside as grey and grey is easy to loose orientation in rolls or distant turns! I painted my topside like RAAF mirage 1988 (orange triangle on white delta) which looks super sweet and is easy to spot! Will post a pic in files if I can work out how!super ce modle qu'est le rafale, vol super bien mais manque juste un peu de puissance, tres belle finition neanmoins, par contre les ailes doivent etre decoupees pour pouvoir ajuster au corps de l'avionA great aircraft to fly. No in-flight trimming required with no handling issues. It flys well at high speed and low with an easy stall to read. The only issue was the fan unit which had severe vibration at 1/4 throttle and was noisy throughout the range. Now I've balanced it with my phone's vibration app, some tape and glue it's remarkably quiet with virtually no motor noise. If the the fan had been balanced it would have got 5 stars.
The motor was burn out when cnnect battery after assembly..
Bad news is assembly first instead of test the ESC and EDF. Plane is too big and can't put in original box.
This product is "Plug-n-Fly". It's meaning the plane and EDF & motor are assembled done in factory. User just connect the main wing. I try to replace the motor by myself when it happened weeks ago. But no way to do this.
Anyone have suggestion?
BTW, ask for the help for the customer csnter. After weeks, they refund US$10 for replace the motor.!@^
excellent avion ,ce rafale etant mon premier jet je pensai avoir de difficultes a le piloter et pourtant j'ai ete fortement impressione par sa facilite, sa vitesse , sa stabilite et sa reactivitee ( les vrilles sont jouissives).
je vole le mien avec une lipo 11v 2200 qui rentre tout juste dans le logement prevu a cet effet.
Une petite modication sera dans ce cas necessaire cependant, je vous conseille de gainer la tringlerie du gouvernail afin que la batterie n'empeche pas son bon fonctionnement .
Pour ce tarif achetez les yeux fermez , mm debutantNice finish. Balancing the EDF reduces noise. Also take care of the flap mount, better change them to a foil type. All in all a nice plane!Maidened mine today. Expected a bit more thrust from the EDF, but it flies OK. Aileron inputs are much more sensitive than elevator inputs. You need a lot of throw on the elevons because of the not so sensitive elevator. Also, for it to fly straight at say 60-70pcnt throttle, you need about 3mm of up elevator. I set this on the clevis/horn instead of the trims. It seems to work....
I expected a bit more, because of all the great reviews, but I'm happy with it. Landing and slow harrier passes are a breeze with this model. It is beautiful, but as others said it is a bit hard to see if too far away. All my other foamies are EPO or EPP, so the EPS of this bird seems to me a bit fragile. It marks easily and the paint tends to come off in parts that are handled a lot (like inside and around the canopy). Do yourself a favor and if you buy this paint the veins of the canopy... it looks so much better!Even if they are not any instructions on how to build the plane coming with the package, this mini fighter is great ! Light, fast and easy to build. I fly it with 3S 1300 mAh LiPo. Flying time is about 4". All servos were correctly set. Fast shipping from Germany to France : 3 days ! It was my first order on HK, but not the last. Very satisfied on all aspects.i ordered it last sunday, received it this thursday, fast shipping from germany to france
this jet is very nice, very realistic
the vertical rudder is not easy to adjust;the servo is making sound when the stick is "off", don't know how to adjust it !
very easy to launch, start very well (not necessary to run for launching it, throttle at full and it's on the air)
Not very fast, could be more powered, but "as it" it is perfect for beginner or intermediate pilote
