Well I do believe I named this thread incorrectly. Should have called it "The Ever Evolving, Never Ending He-162 EDF Thread"
I've exceeded my AUW goal by about 150%. Paint must weigh a lot more than I considered. And since the Dollar Tree version @ around 100g wouldn't fly on the same power system it's time to consider an alternate power source.
So, out with the 30mm and in with the 40mm.
Going with this motor I purchased a few months ago :http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=14555
and a GWS 40mm EDF assembly.
Can't decide about the rotor. I have a 50mm that can be cut down. I believe the vanes are beefier than the 40mm rotors, and will flex less. Or just go with the 40mm rotor and bore the hole to fit the shaft. Any thoughts?
