Thanks for the compliments.

There will need to be some form of inlet ductwork to smooth the down and in flow and then there will be some form of outlet ductwork as well, not yet sure what form that will take. On the original build from 1998 by Chris Golds the fans were 70mm and sat higher so a simple slightly conical thrust tube was all that was required. I may have to have an eccentric cone, keeping the outlet level with the top of the fan and brining up the bottom of the cone if you see what I mean. As this is not a fast flyer I am after more static and low speed thrust so I will not be reducing the oulet very much compared to the FSA.
