Here are a few pics of my 30mm shroud but with the 6 blade fan...
The motor is a beautiful little unit.

8 mm MCPX BL motor in Ducted Fan
| Mar 24, 2013 @ 11:48 PM | 1,315 Views
I just finished a very preliminary test of the new 8mm brushless MCPX BL tail rotor motor in my home brew 30mm Ducted Fan, 3 blades...
Very encouraging for a light weight, lower output unit.
Fan is cut down GWS 30mm
Shroud is lathe turned ABS (way too much work)
Stators/ motor mount modified from Nitro 25mm for 8.5mm motors
On a 1/2 charged 200mah, 20c E.Flight pack I measured:
Thrust @ 26.5 grams
Watts. @ 8.2
Unfortunately my battery charger was at work so I am stuck for today. More later in the week...
Test @ full charge of the following:
w/ 6 blade fan
Re-test w/ 3 blade fan
w/ 6 blade fan
w/ 3 blade fan
(Nitro and BIM, you guys are awesome!!
Freddie, you are an inspiration to many builders & flyers!
