Do these RCB kits include the canopies?

I'm new to this thread and have a question. The early CS 10 fan units had 4 stator blades, I purchased a new one and there are many more stator blades. Why is that ? Does it provide more thrust, efficiency , less turbulence ?? I did a simple static thrust test inside an EDF airframe using a 6S battery and a L2855-2100 HK motor and found the early 4 stator blade fan housing provided a bit more thrust. Any answer will be helpful.

I recently changed out a Freewing 6 blade fan for the CS10B V3 in my 70mm Starmax Mig-15 using a Leopard 3400Kv inrunner. With the FW 6 Blade I was pulling 67A and 1030W, with the CSV3 I am getting 85A and 1275W, I am able to fit one heatsink to the Leopard (I had 2 on it in the FW housing but the CSV3 housing is much longer and there is not enough can left to fit 2) but worried these power levels may kill it as it is rated max 80A and 1300W. Has anyone else tried this combination and had it last? The Mig was marginal with the 6B as it is a big model for a 70mm unit so I am really hoping the extra thrust of the 10B will give it a bit more performance.

Can you not cut back some of the housing to make room for the heat sinks? I routinely shorten the 90mm CS shrouds which leaves more room to add heat sinks.

Possibly, hadn't thought of doing that but I will look at it. The fan sounds great and after balancing (incidentally using the method you described on another thread) runs very smooth, I am looking forward to flying it and seeing how the Mig performs compared to the FW6B.

That is a lot of Power (and Amps) for that size of motor! So don't do long WOT runs! hehe
You only need a fraction of that power to fly around 'normal' anyway, so you would fly on more like 500W to 600 W range (700W or so?). So it will do that fine for long term.
It will also be very inefficient at that top end power level. Probably burning 30% (or more) of it as heat!

Understood, I am using a YEP100A ESC so it should survive the increased heat of partial throttle flying OK. The Mig flies OK once it is cleaned up and getting some ram air, so hopefully the 10B will get it off a bit quicker and help it get on the step, then as you say I can throttle back and let it cruise.
