| Ther you go., First of all I was thinking of the stiff I HAVE read about
If it works well, nobody says anything. If it doesn't work, people scream. You tend to hear the bad stuff far more than the good stuff :)

Ducted fans in a park flier are a bad idea. They look cool, and if you're making a model of a jet it's certainly more scale than a prop, but they're extremely inefficient. Give me a big prop and a gear box for anything but a racer.

I'm sure if GWS or Multiplex sells some ducted fan park fliers (I haven't looked), but if they do, they probably suck too :)

Actually, I originally had a GWS Lite Stick. It sucked with the suggested configuration -- it would barely fly. I replaced the 6 cell NiCd 150 mAh pack with a 8 cell 300 mAh NiMH pack, and it became a totally different plane. So this isn't just Wattage ...
Still, I'm much happier with the Tubby Cubby than I was with the Lite Stick, even with a decent pack on it.
