The power system for this is going to be 3 Rimfire .60 size 650kv motors on 6s. These will be mounted inside the Home Depot buckets obviously, but not at the top. The top of the buckets are a bit wider then an 11" prop, but not wide enough for a 12".

Each duct unit will be able to rotate some...forward/backwards.... for control least thats the plan. A flight control board will most likely have to be used for the motor esc's themselves in conjuction with radio mixes for the tilting of the fan housings. Additional gyros may need to be employed on top of the fc board for that purpose.

The motors have been ordered and should be here at the end of the week.
