I am a bit curious about the 3 pound thrust. I guess a should reread the thread to see if you measured the thrust after mounting the fan.

It was the battery Sir, I used a 14volt lipo when I should have used an 18volt lipo, I screwed Up due to Maiden nerves.

I had been thinking that the air inlets were causing a restricted air flow.

Thanks for clearing that up.

On 18Volts It generated a MASSIVE amount of thrust but the 4Cell just wasnt enough, I got the Lipos confused during charging . . .it happens Lol

The Air inlet seems to be adequate.

Well I should have used a 5cell Lipo for the 1st maidens, But I'm now installing a Eflight Delta-V 80mm Fan unit for the next flight, That Unit uses a 6Cell lipo.
