When i first saw that fan in the post, it is what made me want to do an EDF version of my F-14 even more... I'm expecting to carry 150-160oz of Jet-A per turbine (300-320oz total), that is 17 pounds of fuel. If the fan/motor/esc equals the weight of the turbine install, and the batteries equals the weight of the fuel, and the fan is putting out 30-34lbs of thrust, then you would have nearly identical performance between the 2 versions.
