The Hobbyking Rafale EDF is an excellent, high detail EPS kit of the unique Delta Wing French fighter, which includes features such as, highly detailed, moulded panel lines and scale ordenance, fixed under-carriage if required (also suitable for hand launching or electric retracts - not included), high speed 70mm 4 blade fan unit and a removable fan cover. The battery compartment has plenty of room for a wide choice of Lipoly batteries and a flat canopy underside that does not restrict the depth of the compartment.
This jet is a nice size, big enough to have presence in the air, small enough to be easily transported.

Nice kit. Recived it in 8 days to Sweden, without dammage. Surface of the modell is realy smooth. Wings and inlets are as they should, one left and one right. I hope the manufacturer has fired the eployed that could not tell the difference between right and left..Superbe en vol ce rafale est trs trs facile faire voler, un vrai trainer, facile a construire mais devra tre modifi pour de relles performances de vitesse. l'extraction de l'air est comme bloque par le y des tuyres. Le grandeur comporte 2 racteurs, la il n'y a qu'une turbine! Cela dit avec mon setup ma vitesse est plutot bonne et les passages quelques centimetres du sol 10kmh sont un rgal.

Le train n'a jamais t mont et le lanc main est plutot facile.
Mon setup, turbine 5pales, bl 2200kv, 6s 2200, turnigy trust 45amp, servo gnriques.
A acheter sans problmesHere is my setup, edf 70mm 5 blades, 6s 2200, turnigy trust 45amp. Very easy to fly but not very fast even on 6s!! Very beayful in the air!!mine arrived safely today, everything, in order, it was supplied with a 3blade fan, if i had known i wouldnt have ordered the 4 blade with it, but i will thrust test both units and see what is the better choice, has anyone got any results and best performance from this 3 blade fan, would love some data and motor combo,, otherwise. great unit, happy with the price size and service, 15 stars,The kit was packed with 2 left wing halves. No right wing half. Hobbyking is trying to resolve the issue, offered $24.00 compensation, but I asked that a right wing half be sent, I can't complete the plane with the offer.
If Hobbyking can't supply the corresponding part, I have to send my extra left half to them, imo, and ask for full compensation of $64.64 the cost of plane and shipping to my location.
It's a QC issue with the manufacturer...Hobbyking is on the line for, and I sympathize, so the manufaturer is on the line with H/K. I'm hoping that this can be solved internally, my plane is finished, except to glue on the wing and plug in the servo when it comes.
I'll persist. In light of the number of inquiries due to mixed up kitting, I wish Hobbyking would discontinue the kit for the time being, to keep the problem from getting worse.A falta do manual de montagen, me complicou na construo do trem de pouso.
Tambm recebi meu kit faltando as braadeiras do Aleron.
um bom kit EDF, um pouco grande, mas ns poderamos ter, da HobbyKing, mais informaes sobre o uso de EDFs e motores.
Eu coloquei no meu avio, um EDF de 72 milmetros com motor de 3200kv se voou .. "ok"
The lack of manual construction, was where I had the most difficulty was the construction of the landing gear
I received my kit missing clamps of Aleron too.
Is a good EDF Kit, a little Large, but we could have, of HobbyKing, more information about what EDF/engine use.
I put in my plane a EDF 72mm with 3200kv and if flew.. "ok"So got my wing issue worked out found the CG by methodical taxi and shifting the batter till it got airborne. 62mm from leading edge at wing root with 70 mm 4 s setup. Installed my Hk retracts put the stock wheels on the axles. Be careful of the canards. They are fragile and are prone to hangar rash. Elevon mixing make this plane easy to handle and flyGreat plane if I can get a right wing for both of the planes I ordered. According to Product Support they can't get the replacement wings I need to get them in the air. Does anyone know who makes this model? Does anyone have two right wings in their kit and want to trade one for the other? I will gladly pay the shipping to do the swap. I would like to complete my build and fly it if anyone can help me.It flies great!!! But man.... what alterations i made.
1. doubled(!) the air inlet (got rid of the strange foam ridge blocking the air as it flows along the body and thoroughly sanded the inlet all the way up to obtain a bigger volumeflow).
2. mounted a powerfull Het RC w25 inrunner.
3. mounted a 9 blade change sun fan
4. 60A Esc (maybe 80A is better, it now draws 63 A)
5. 2200, 4s 40-50c lipo
5. crafted a alu fixed landinggear
6. remodeld the "thick finger" in between the exhaust pipes
7. mounted an antenna on the nose ;-)
Its flies like a 90mm edf jet now. Very fast, stable and docile if you want.
Foam quality is smooth, but not very strong (a "handle with care" sticker is aplicable). All in all: nice to fly, with all alterations a bit to expensive.they are a great plain we are just waiting for them to be back in stock here in Australia there are four of is waiting come on hk hurry up
