I would estimate the fan/motor/esc weight to be close to 5lbs, and the batteries to feed this would be maybe 9-10lbs, so the total power system weight would end up at 28-30lbs. Now, it would also give 60lbs + of thrust, so the power is there for sure. But don't you guys have a 55lbs weight limit to stay under? That only leaves 25lbs for the rest of the airplane and it sounds to me like it might be a hard target to reach.
