None that I have planned. What are you looking for?

I have a 4000 plus 64mm setup in my stinger. When I installed it I thought that it would have a little better performance with some streamlining to reduce drag. A fearing between the motor and fan to fill that large space would help. An airfoil shape to cover the wires would reduce drag even more. Those wires are in the highest energy part of the air stream.

You could make some plastic parts to do the job. I expect that they would sell very well. What do you think?

The drag is in the airframe. Did you install the thrust tube? You should be 100-105 mph with the setup you have in the Stinger. Put that same setup in a HP F16 and it will be ~115 mph as it is a cleaner airframe.

Setup D: For 4S lipo (about 830 watts) For 4S lipo, max power I sell in 64mm.

You have not stocking the HET fan units anymore Don? Your EDO Type I EDF with a 4400 plus EDF is close to the same watts?

I do not have any 6404s in stock and they are not a popular selling fan so I have not reordered. I can mount a motor to one if you send me a fan. The EDO Type 1 is not really rated for those high watts, it will probably blow off the blades.

If I may ask Don, have you tired any other 64MM fan units and/or considered stocking higher blade count fan units?
