Made a paper tracing of the exhaust nozzle pattern on the plans, so I could cut and paste and get it right.
It needed to be a little longer and to have more width at the front in order to fit my fan. Still isn't quite there, gotta do one more "edit" to get it perfecto.
Dan: what about using a big automotive type hose clamp for holding the nozzle to the fan? I'd like to glue the overlap on the PTEG as well, but don't have any idea what kind of glue to use.
I plan to run the motor wires straight out the exhaust, then have them do a 180 through the bottom of the fiberglass so as to run forward to the ESC, which will be about on the CG, on the bottom (under the battery tray) with the fins sticking out into the slipstream. That way, the wires between the ESC and pack will be really short.
