BVM Aggressor edf-90mm or 120mm?

I have recently come across a new in the box BVM Aggressor kit. It is untouched,but designed to be flown with an .82 sized nitro ducted fan.. I have had a couple of these planes years ago and would like to build this one for edf. I am just wondering if it would be better to build it around a jet fan 90mm v2 or a 120mm. I already own a couple of 90mm edf planes that fly very well on 8s 4000mah set ups. This Aggressor is larger than my HK Diablo or my HET Super Sniper 90XL.

I have inlet ducts for this that fit the JF 120 or BVM fan ,the ducts are longer and allow more room for batts and to adj CG .Mark from dinogy batts has some in his restore aggressor .

I'd go with a hot 90 mm setup. 10-12S proper ducting

I agree with Robert, I think a hot 10s 90mm setup is a great choice and keeps it lighter around the weight these had with the original DF setup or maybe just a tad over that.

~120mm power setup ~4.5 to 5kW you have to get creative with finding a place for the batteries. But of course it can be done and you will likely want to go 12s in this case. There you will be 14 or 15lbs.

I don't know if there are any 100mm setups out there that would work.

True statement.......however; unless you can find one on the "pre-owned" market I think you are out of luck.
Stuart made very few 100mm and as far as I know has not produced them in a few years now.

Sadly the 100-45 just hasn't been popular enough for me to get a batch of carbon tube type shrouds made up so I can produce them painlessly. It would actually reduce the fan price substantially, too, to around $230 or so. Hand making carbon shrouds is so painful & messy I just don't want to go there any more. If enough people wanted a 100-45 I would get a batch of shrouds made but there just aren't enough models aimed at 100mm fans except for these older ICDF models. The only reason these models are perfect is because they need to be built, meaning the builder will be able to modify the inlet ducting to suit, or could buy suitable ducting from Tam. Unfortunately I don't think there are any ARF's out there aimed at 100mm fans. It's a shame as it's a great size and the models are large enough to fly well and have presence but small enough not to require all expensive stuff inside.

I would commit to purchase a 100mm at $230. Sounds perfect for the older BVM stuff which are pretty tight using the evf at around 115mm.

What about building one.

Knife little describes very well how to use hayoe shroud, build a plate for motor to reinforce flimsy plastic, and can probably say that a cut down rotor will do the job really nice.

With the new het motors instead of outrunner motor should end with a nice efficient combo.

Stumax, I have 3 ICDF old planes. I want to buy 100 mm EDF.

Juanjulian, Lee can do this modification. But I coudnt it. I cut turbax rotor and I used a 100 mm hayoe shroud. I think balans wasnt very well. I was afraid to run. It would probably destroy. This job very dancer for me. I never try it.
