AIR/e EDF Jet​

The AIR/e EDF Jet is a foam-balsa constructed tested by the team in 2017 and 2018. This heavy weight airplane is powered by three LiPo batteries (14 cells in total) that power a single Electric Ducted Fan motor (128 mm) that can produce 130 Newton of thrust, which just satisfied the needed amount of force to fly the EDF Jet.
The team gained a lot of knowledge on designing and  fabricating to improve their first remote controlled airplane, that in 2019, they started on designing a lighter and more stable airplane: the AIR/e Midi EDF airplane.
