Hey Rodger, got your nacelle mounted up. Looks like a million bucks, you really did an excellent job on the fit and finish. Thanks.

Good job sir, you managed to get the cowl nice and low, did you have to do any modifications to the fuselage or cowl mountings..?

Thanks for the pictures, even more impressive and an excellent job. Without a doubt that has to be the lowest you can get fan in this model.

Present setup is a Schubi 94 HST 6745-700. Will run on 7700mah TP 65C 14S which is supposed to deliver max 29# thrust and 105m/s (232mph?) efflux. Also plan to try the new high power Stumax 120mm (Rodgers making the Nacelle now)

Thanks for the praise

I am sure the Schubi is going to be great in the Falcon, just a pain to have use 14S. Stuart seems to be able to get the same amount of puff from the same size fan on 12S, those 2 extra cells add a lot of dead weight.

Have you tried getting those big cells x 14S in the airframe?, i had to do a similar but not quite as bad surgery to get 14S x 5,000mA packs in and still get the Cg where it should be.

I used 2 6s 6800mha XPS packs in my Falcon and i came in at 21lb With 14s 5000 it should be the same On the fans... You have to get a 14s ESC to use the Schubi and just a HV160 to run the StuMax on 12s and get the same trust!!! Hmmmmm that's a no brainer to me

7,700mA packs are bound to be heavier than 6.8K ones and he has 2 extra cells as well..?

I tend to agree as the Velox is quite a heavy model, additional care will be needed on the pack placement to get the correct Cg, I had a lot of issues in this area..

Wait that a Velox not a Falcon!! It will be just fine with that in it.. Much bigger jet and it is all composite constitution. We had one with a P80 on it but i can't remember what it weighed
Good luck and she looks great
