Hi, mine had a sticker that says 900gm thrust, but there was no sign of prop-rub. When I ran it up on a 25C 2250 3S, the impeller did tub on the shroud. So, did they actually test those fans?

BTW, I am going to use an HXT 80A ESC instead of the EMAX 40A. There wasn't much leeway with the 40A as the wattmeter showed an amp draw of 39A+ at 12.3V. I think the 80A would be much safer.

I have not bothered with balancing the rotor as I don't have a sensitive balancer. Just let it balance itself out. Not a lot of vibration, though.

Will install the linkages tonite in readiness for the weekend maiden. Will just use some colored tapes for orientation and wait to paint it later.
