The CenterBurner Simulated Afterburner

CenterBurner Simulated Afterburner Light System

NEW MiniBurners and MultiBurners added for more CenterBurner options!  Also, thanks to some reduced manufacturing costs, burners are now available for a new lower price!!

I’m happy to introduce the “CenterBurner” simulated afterburner system!  This system has been designed to fit many different types of systems.  For Freewing EDFs, it is a drop in replacement for the tail cone.  The “Universal/Inrunner” system simply fastens to the exposed motor behind the fan.  The system includes a custom made PCB populated with 5mm LEDs in a 3D printed ABS cone with a separate programmable controller.  See the video below for more information and installation details.

To order, please select the desired system from the drop down menu and select “add to cart.” Currently we have available 80mm and 90mm options for the Freewing fan with aluminum housing and 80mm and 90mm “Universal/Inrunner” options that fit over 36mm and 39mm diameters respectively.  Lastly, there is a “twin” option which is for a multi-fan system which consists of two CenterBurner units and a single controller.

MiniBurner Simulated Afterburner Light System (64mm and 70mm EDFs)

The MiniBurner simulated afterburner lighting system is ideal for smaller the 64mm and 70mm EDFs and provides a center "glow" like a full size jet aircraft afterburner. The MiniBurner is designed for 28mm and 30mm inrunner motors and is installed by simply clamping onto the back of the motor using 3 provided set screws.

Recommended controller battery voltage is 7.2V (2s Lipo, 5 NiCd-NiMh). A123 2s and 3s allowed, do not use 3S or higher Lipo. BEC/Switching Regulator is good too with voltage of 7-8.0v.

The following MiniBurner options are currently available:

  • 70mm/64mm EDF Inrunner/Universal for 28mm Inrunner Motor(will fit over most interfaces 28mm diameter or smaller, E-flite Viperjet, E-flite F-16, FMS F-16, FMS F-18F, E-flite SU-30, etc.)
  • 70mm EDF Inrunner/Universal for 30mm Inrunner Motor (will fit over most interfaces 30mm diameter or smaller, FMS SU-30, etc.)
  • "Twin" options of all of the above are available which include 2 light boards with a single light controller for a dual fan twin setup
  • Select MiniBurner Option

Price : $70 Single / $90 Twin

CenterBurner Simulated Afterburner Light System (80mm-120mm EDFs)

CenterBurner simulated afterburner lighting system. This is designed as a tailcone replacement for most EDFs and provides a center "glow" like a full size jet aircraft afterburner.

Recommended controller battery voltage is 7.2V (2s Lipo, 5 NiCd-NiMh). A123 2s and 3s allowed, do not use 3S or higher Lipo. BEC/Switching Regulator is good too with voltage of 7.2v.

Currently we offer options for 70mm, 80mm and 90mm fans (both outrunner and inrunner). The following options are currently available:

  • Freewing 80mm EDF Outrunner (e.g. Freewing F-14, A-4, Avanti, etc.)
  • 80mm EDF FMS 32mm Inrunner/Universal (will fit over most interfaces 32mm diameter or smaller, E-flite F-4)
  • 80mm EDF 36mm Inrunner/Universal (will fit over most interfaces 36mm diameter or smaller)
  • Freewing 80mm 9-Blade EDF (e.g. Freewing Mirage 2000 V2, A-10, etc.)
  • Freewing 90mm EDF Outrunner (e.g. Freewing F-4 6s, F-16 6s, F-22 6s, etc.))
  • 90mm EDF Inrunner/Universal (will fit over most interfaces 39mm diameter or smaller, Freewing F-4 8s, F-22 8s, etc.)
  • FMS 90mm EDF (Interfaces with the FMS 90mm fan)
  • Avios 90mm EDF (Interfaces with the Avios 90mm fan in the Mig-17)
  • "Twin" options of all of the above are available which include 2 light boards with a single light controller
  • Select 90mm Option
    Select 80mm Option

Price : $75 Single / $100 Twin

MultiBurner Simulated Afterburner Dual Light System (90mm+ EDFs)

The MultiBurner simulated afterburner lighting system is ideal for single fan/dual exhaust aircraft (i.e. F-4 Phantom, F-18 Hornet, etc.). Sized for 90mm and greater EDFs it provides a center "glow" like a full size jet aircraft afterburner in each of the dual exhausts with no impact to aircraft performance. The MultiBurner is designed for 36mm and 39mm inrunner motors and is installed by simply clamping onto the back of the motor using 4 provided set screws. It is also available for the Freewing 90mm Outrunner fan.

Recommended controller battery voltage is 7.2V (2s Lipo, 5 NiCd-NiMh). A123 2s and 3s allowed, do not use 3S or higher Lipo. BEC/Switching Regulator is good too with voltage of 7-8.0v.

The following MultiBurner options are currently available:

  • Freewing 90mm Outrunner Fan (Freewing 6s F-4, 6s F-18, 6s F-15, 6s F-22, etc.)
  • 90mm+ Inrunner/Universal for 39mm Inrunner Motor (will fit over most interfaces 36mm diameter or smaller, Freewing 8s F-4, 8s F-18, 8s F-15, 8s F-22, etc.)
  • 90mm+ Inrunner/Universal for 36mm Inrunner Motor (will fit over most interfaces 36mm diameter or smaller, Neu 14 series motors, etc.)
  • Select Multi-Burner Option

SYSTEM OVERVIEW & INSTALLATION

The following shows the installation of my original CenterBurner.  Since that time, all controllers now come with a red JST plug pre-installed.  Additionally, the inrunner designs don’t replace an existing tailcone, but rather simply slide onto the back of the motor and are held in place with some small set screws which are included with all inrunners.

The following shows provides additional information about the MultiBurner and MiniBurners along with a demo of the MultiBurner in action!

410 Productions put together a nice installation video of the NEW 28mm MiniBurner Twin into the E-flite SU-30 which is below.
