Slightly heavier due to bigger motor but also more efficient than the light 4S setup. Expect about 110-115 mph on this setup.

Using the stock EF-16 fan unit or stock Squall fan unit.
If you already have the stock EF-16 fan unit you must first make sure which version you have my measuring the diameter of the rotor, or the inside diameter of the fan housing (not the outside diameter). They have two versions of fan units. One is 70mm (newer EF-16 and all Squall kits) and the other is 56mm (original older EF-16 fan unit). The 70mm rotor is either 3 or 5 blades and the housing will have 8 vanes in it, the 56mm rotor is 3 blades and the housing has 3 vanes in it.

70mm Motor Recommendation:
For the EF-16/Squall 70mm fan:
700 to 800 watts on 4S depending on 3 or 5 blade rotor
Can also be flown on 3S as well, watts will about 400 or so on 3S lipo

56mm Motor Recommendation:
For the older EF-16 56mm fan:
Wicked 5400 with standoff and XF rotor plug option
http://donsrc.com/cart/index.php?_a=...&product_id=50

The 5400KV will give stock power on 3S but will really perform on 4S (which it was intended for). You will want a 40 amp ESC but if you are going to use high C lipos like 40C and run full throttle most of the time on 4S then I suggest a 60 amp ESC to be safe.


60mm setups for the Phase 3 EF-16:

These setups are what I originally used when plane first came out. They still work well.

60mm Option 1:
For 3S (about 320 watts) and 5 blade rotor in Wicked 60mm fan:
(can be flown on 4S ~600 watts but you may want a 60 amp ESC unless you runs a smaller 4S lipo like a 1800 mah)
