Not being able to use the intake lip that comes with this fan severely decreases the performance. Though you get quite a bit back when it's installed in the airframe. I'll always take all I can get though. May play around a bit with the cheaters and see what I can do.

Here are the pictures showing the minimal amount of foam removed to fit the battery in. This battery is long and narrow, a perfect fit for this aircraft. The majority of the foam was removed to fit the fan in and open up the exhaust. I didn't have time to do the details so I slapped some yellow electrical tape on for orientation.

Details and touchup painting to come...

Thanks. We had our fly-in today and I forgot to get someone to video the flight. Getting more and more comfortable with it. It's a rocket, unlimited vertical and the fastest pass in that video was dopplered at 105mph but it looks much faster to me. Here's a pic after I packed up heading to the fly-in.

If anyone is looking for a better nose cone, after trimming 4-5mm off the back of this one it fits perfectly. It's the same shape and it's fiberglass instead of that thin junky plastic.

I think ejf carries it as well.
