Help!
What are ducted fan, lipo battery, esc, motors for "suction car robot"?

Hi
I'm going to make a suction car as following video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=CmBONR2MtW8

The car works on the principle of a vacuum. There is a high powered ducted fan that pulls air from underneath the flat chassis and expels the air out the top. If this is done at a high enough rate, the fan will try to "suck" more air than can be supplied. This creates "suction" or a vacuum between the chassis and the surface it is riding on.
However, I don't know what are its ducted fan, lipo battery, esc, motors?
And what website can I buy the hardware for it?

Thanks a lot

You'll have MUCH better luck messaging the guy directly on youtube than having people on here guess at what he used.

That's basically just an airhogs zero gravite micro but better electronics, I suggest a 64mm EDF real cheap
http://www.hobbypartz.com/88e-adf64-28m-4500kv.html
and a small hommade car body with a Towerpro MG-90

But then thats me

If you make it, put a tiny 3mm gap between the EDF and the wall, and build the car as light as possible!

Hi all
I don't know why my PC cannot access to hobbypartz.com (auto redirect to google.com)?
Anyone has the same problem and how to solve it?
