If your bird is 7-8 pounds your airplane is going to be ballistic. I have that same fan in many of my airplanes some in excess of 25 lbs. Your airframe better be super strong as your thrust is going to be 2:1 and that should be insane. Good luck and your build technique looks great. Short take offs. But thinking about this on 12s 3.5 lbs, plus 2 lbs on fan you may not be 2:1 but very much in the 1.5:1 range which is still awesome.
