topgun did you flew the F-22 V3 why is it she is not in the market? only few V3 can be access or need special permission to view them all?


The F-22 V3 was not as popular as the F-22 V2. And it was called "The experts parkjet" because it had some inherent instability.
It can be difficult for Dave and crew to support a plane like that. It quickly becomes a drain on resources and a money looser to keep it on the market.

However, it wouldn't hurt to email [email]info@rcpowers.com[/email] and ask that question. They might be willing to make an exception.

You will not be disappointed with the V2. It was my trainer. I've probably built 7 or 8 of them. In fact, I have one in the garage right now that just needs electronics.
Welcome to the addiction.

The RCPowers F-22 V2

[/parsehtml]“Got some great compliments”
Hey everyone, long time reader - first time poster. I got the Course and built up the F22 EB with great success. I have already (in 3 flights now) managed to pop both servo's loose, take a chunk out of the wing and snap an elevator but this depron is super easy to fix. I now need to rebuild the first 3 inches of nose - which seems to be a common problem - especially for me as I get a bit cocky! Other than that, it is super stable - hardly had to trim it - just a little up elevator - and a joy to fly as a beginner. Really happy so far - just need to get some flying technique down! Big kudos to RCPowers.

Have to give a shout out to the survivability of this airframe. I was in a full throttle low speed pass when when I hit the ground (it was a REALLY low pass) with the right wing. It blew the nose off, tore a huge chunk out of the wing, split the fuselage and had the left elevons hanging on by the carbon fiber reinforcing rod. Somehow I never lost focus or gave up but simply flew out of the crash and brought the plane all the way around the field to a gentle landing at my feet to the amazed cheers from the flight line. What a hoot! This being the planes 4th crash, it's probably time to start over. Printed plans for the V5 yesterday.

Since we've made the F22v2 and F35v2 plans free, we've had hundreds of downloads! So, I'm bumping this thread to make it more accessible to those guys downloading the F22v2 plans. This thread has a ton of broken links due to the server transfer, but it will offer lots of info. Read through it and you'll see what I mean!

I received the F22v2 plans and I am searching for a build thread (or instructions). Is there an active thread?

I have attached a Word doc I put together when was putting the F-22v2 together when it originally came out.  It's a large file because it has a lot of pictures.  Hope this helps.

Just make sure to place the battery under the turtle deck and not under the canopy. Otherwise you will have trouble getting the CofG right with a 3s 2200 mAh battery (which is the minimum capacity in my opinion - giving you about 6 to 8 minutes flighttime).

I recommend that you assemble the plane as shown in the doc-file instructions postet above, but don't cut out the hatch (skip step 10 and 11). Instead you cut out the turtle deck after the build is finished and make it become a service door using magnets and tape. You can safely cut away the vertical, triangle shaped part of foam under the turtle deck (I strongly recommend you dont put any glue there during assembly). You might also want to build a little box for the battery and cut even deeper into the foam of the fuselage under the turtle deck to make the foam-battery-box recess into it. This will put the battery almost right on the roll axis, which will make the plane behave more smooth.

Here are two pictures from two of my F-22 V 2 that show the placement of the battery under the turtle deck in a foam box (the pictures show two different planes):

I had forgotten about the "battery box" mod.  I have attached an image, a PowerPoint file, and a pdf file which gives instructions on how to do that modification to the plans.  Basically you are building a "box" aft of the cockpit to place the battery. To do this you have to cut some of the "spine" piece which runs down the center of the plane.  The mod can be a little confusing but since it's been so long since I put mine together I won't be much help other than what I have posted.

This is the thread! All 6,177 pages of it. Lots of good tips!  I recommend looking through the beginning pages where we all began to build it for the first time because there were lots of tips on build and set up in the beginning. Ask questions here!

Looks great! 👍

Never went for ailerons on the F22 though. It flies great with just elevons.
