Smallest EDF Units Available?

Hi all,

I have for a long time been toying with the idea of experimenting with a scratch built EDF project and as such have been looking at various actuators and micro servos online as I think I should acquire the electronics and guts of the plane before I start to build.

I'd be grateful for your expertise if you could tell me what is the smallest EDF unit that is available on the market. Something really, really small would be ideal as I may need 6 of them in the model, yes its rather weird!

If something tiny is not available, how easy would it be to construct your own fan unit. Has anyone tried and do they have any advice they can pass on?

Also any tips on where to shop would be brilliant. I noticed Ballards who supply Round The Pole equipment sell ducted fan props but I doubt they would be effective despite the great low price.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

Cheers

Gareth
