Eflite SU-30 Twin 70mm TrueFire and BlueFire LED Afterburner

Regular price $69.99


The afterburner is for motor PN EFLM1850.


TrueFire - Random flickering from 30% to 50% throttle to simulate the afterburner lighting/turning on. From 50% throttle to 100% throttle the afterburner gets brighter with full brightness at 100% throttle. 

BlueFire - Random blue led ring flickering from 30% throttle to 50% throttle. Center afterburner led is not on during this portion. From 50% throttle to 100% throttle the center afterburner led gets brighter with full brightness at 100% throttle. The blue led ring is on at a lower intensity during this portion. 

Select-A-Fire - adjust the throttle position where the main Orange LED turns on. For BlueFire units the throttle position where the Blue LED starts to flicker is adjustable. The ability to turn on and off the flickering effect is also provided. Available for TrueFire and BlueFire units. 

No additional radio (TX) programming is required to achieve the realistic afterburner effect. This is a plug and play system. 

Includes a 3D printed motor mount, 20" extension wiring from controller to LED, connection to a 6S battery balance port and receiver. We can offer a 4S version if desired. Just let us know. 

An integrated Y cable is provided with the controller to split the throttle signal from the receiver (RX) and provide it to the afterburner controller and the ESC. 

The controller itself weighs 18g.

The dimension listed is for the outside diameter of the motor. The unit can be attached to the motor using a zip tie, Gorilla tape or FoamTac glue. See photos for more information. 

Installation instructions:

1) Remove the motor per the manual instructions. 

2) Attach the afterburner LED unit to the rear of the motor using FoamTac Glue. Tighten zip tie and add Gorilla tape if desired. Leave the FoamTac to set for 24 hours and then you can remove the zip tie if desired.  

3) Route the LED wire to the battery compartment.

4) Connect the LED wire to the TrueFire LED controller.

5) Connect the ESC lead to the Y splitter. One end goes to the receiver throttle port and one to the TrueFire LED controller Throttle connection. 

6) Connect the TrueFire LED controller Battery connector to the balance lead of the battery. 

7) Power on the plane and the transmitter. Make sure your plane is secure prior to adding throttle input. Give it throttle and enjoy the TrueFire! It gets really good around 30% throttle input.

Best Afterburner on the Market- Hands Down!

The Blue Fire Afterburner for the E-Flite SU-30 is by far my favorite afterburner thus far! (Although I love all my other Blue Fire and True Fire afterburners!) The LED mount fits the motors perfectly, AND has an extra large cut out that accommodates the way the motor/ESC wires are run off the side of the motor on the SU-30. I had absolutely no trouble mounting the LEDs to the motors. The wires are extra long- which is great on the SU-30 because you have to route them through the channels for the Motor/ESC wires and from motor to receiver it’s quite far on this bird. I had extra length that gave me the option to mount the afterburner module wherever I wanted, and I mounted it with servo tape just past the receiver. The leads coming off the module are marked for easy identification, which made connecting the LEDs to the module a breeze! I was afraid I would have to add weight to the nose of the aircraft due to the extra weight of the afterburners in the tail, BUT adding extra weight wasn’t necessary and the plane still CG’ed just fine. Initial testing was done at night and the Blue Fire is unbelievably bright! It looks AMAZING!

The best part though, was the fact that in the middle of the afternoon, on a cloudless, bright, sunny day, the Blue Fire Afterburners were both unbelievably bright every time the SU-30 flew past! I say again- the afterburners are bright in the middle of the day! I think I’m in love with the twin BlueFire Afterburner for the E-Flite SU-30!!
