Customer eBandit EVO Review

Subject: BVM E-Bandit Evo Flight Report

Hey Heather and Patty,

BVM Bandit Evo E Flight Report


At the Best in the West Jet Rally, Rob Lynch brought out the new EVF powered Bandit Evo. When I saw the Blue Angels scheme, I knew I was in trouble, as I've been obsessed with the Blues since I was a child.. I knew I HAD to fly it, and asking Rob, he happily agreed.
Over the past 20 years, I've built and flown multiple Bandits, both turbine, and ducted fan powered, so I have a solid reference for what to expect from this new E Bandit Evo. The BVM demo model is powered by a 12S 7700mah EVF powerplant, which puts out nearly 20 pounds of static thrust, or almost double what the original DF powerplants could deliver.

 

I taxied out and lined up on the runway. Cleared for takeoff, I started the timer, and brought the throttle up. Acceleration is actually faster than a turbine version as there is no lag at all. I rotated after about 200 feet of ground roll, immediately cleaned up the gear and flaps, and after a short bit of level acceleration, I was able to pull into a 1/2 reverse cuban eight reversal, directly after takeoff. Over the next 5 minutes, I flew my normal airshow routine, including multiple loops, rolls, and both high/low speed flight.  Speeds were varied from 40 to 200 miles per hour. Setting up for landing, again no surprises, as the Bandit is one of the nicest there is in the traffic pattern. Just keep the fuselage level with the ground, use power to control your descent rate, and add a little flare as you reduce power into the landing zone for a beautiful nose-high landing.

 

Upon shutdown and bringing the airplane back to the pit area,  a number of fellow pilots asked what turbine I had in the airplane. Many didn't believe it was EDF powered. At no time, did the airplane ever give away anything to its turbine-powered siblings!
Putting the batteries on the charger, I found we still had 25% capacity remaining, which is right in the window for best treatment of LiPos. 5 1/2 minutes of flight, with plenty of reserve in the batteries is simply incredible. In my opinion, the E-Bandit Evo is an great alternative for those pilots who can't fly turbines at their local field, or who want a simple and clean experience of no messy/smelly fuels to manage.
