Thanks FireHawk. I was planning to use some CF on the horizontal stabs, I have seen some models that come with it from stock, mine don't.
Another question. As I said before this is my first edf. Made a ground test, it's clear that fan needs to be balanced. I see that I can reach fan screw easily (about1 inch from foam edge), without the need of taking out all the edf, but I don't know what to wait, it seems that the motor is somehow attached to the duct, so it won't get loose if I unscrew fan, and the fan looks like if it goes screwed to a shaft adaptor or something like that, my question is: if I unscrew fan, it will be easy to reassemble, I mean, there are no going to appear a bunch of little pieces that force me to take out all the edf unit to put it all together again, am I right and motor won't get loose?. Thanks in advance

Nope, your good. Go ahead take that screw off and pull the fan off of the hub its mounted onto. No little pieces or thing will fly off. I totally get your new and your concerns. Do you know how to balance the fan? I use tape to initially balance it then use CA/super glue (loctite professional) for the permanent setup after tape it removed.

Thanks again FireHawk, I've seen some YT videos on how to balance an edf fan, I'll follow your advises.
