The questions is how much thrust can you get from the 75's given 10 cells. at 1.5 volts you get 15 volts so to get 100 watts/lb you need 300 watts you'll be drawing 20 Amps so you would need 10 amps/side so....at that rating the 75's produce around 8 oz static thrust so if you discount duct losses you would get around 1lb static thrust which would give you a TTW ratio of .3 to 1. Is that enough to fly the Horten??

I honestly don't know.

What does everyone think???
