Twin Fans in the EJF Super hornet

HI Guys, I have been looking at the EJF Kevin Cox design super hornet that they now have for sale and wondered about doing a twin fan set up in it.

Can it be done? Has any one tried it.

Cheers

Shaun

I'm building the KC/EJF F-18 Super Hornet for Midifan right now and the inside width of the rear fuselage is 6.4 inches, so you could fit in two MF480s. The mounting flanges on the fans might hit one another but you could fix that by trimming them or rotating the fans 30 degrees or so...that would make the mounts a bit funny, trimming would be better. You should be able to mount twin HW609s also but it'd be a bit tight.

Thanks

It sounds like it is worth a try, twin MF480 with 1010df in it should make a powerful wee combo


Thanks fior the info


Regards


Shaun

This idea came up on an earlier thread, and it was suggested then that yes it was possible, but fitting retracts too wasnt an option with two fans ( dont know if that bothers you)
