Thanks Clint. Yeah, I had a huge grin on my face the rest of the day. Silly as it may seem. But, this is my first edf. I've been dreaming of flying an RC jet since my Dad and I flew 2-stroke props back in the 80's. I think that was when the 2-stroke ducted fans were coming out. But, it was just too much money for us. So, yesterday was a dream come true for me.

My other battery is a Blue Lipo 2650mAh 30C. I look forward to trying that one out. Today we have T-storms moving in so the wind is grounding me. Next weekend perhaps.

This 70mm version doesn't have any venting to the battery compartment. There isn't an opening for the nose gear. I don't plan on using the gear. Perhaps if I remove the block that the gear protrudes from I can set up a vent through there. I'll have to see how I can address that.
