The AEO fan housing won't accept the Jpower motor, it's a different mounting design. I think a GWS 30mm housing might work, you could still use the 30mm AEO rotor. Use 3s voltage and I'll bet it would work great. The ELE A-10 also has some pretty thick foam in the nacelles, you might even be able to use the 35mm Jpower fans in those nacelles with some sanding. That could work really well. I know my twin AEO fans in that ELE A-10 draw right at 24A which is a but nutty in a micro. It would be so nice to be able to fly that with a lot less amps.
