New Product
Change Sun 10 blade 70mm

I have had alot of P.Ms with people interested in the new 10blade 70mm edf coming out, so here are some pics with some info I got.
It is a pretty heavy loaded little fan, I tested it with the 3200kv mb1 motor on 4s and got around 100 amps and between 1400-1500.
To bring the amps down a little I would use between a 2800-3000kv motor.
But it does have a great sound for a 70mm.
From what I am told these will be released in a week or two and be sold for $13-15.

Hey, FlipFlop.

I have been following your posts on your testing of this new fan with much interest. Do you have a video/audio file of the fan running so we can hear its sound? I have an LX F-18F two of these might be a good match with.

I wish I would have gotten video, I had it installed in a foam HL f-35 that went down on a bad handlaunch and decided to sell it at the time to fund another project. I think the new owner has it installed in one of his jets and maybe he would not mind chiming in.....

The Wemotec is a great fan and you wont be dissapointed, it is also proven.
I think eventually when this fan comes out it will take more trial and error to find the right motor for it. I would buy the Wemo and then later buy one of these to experiment with.

Hey Peter,

A good deal on a Venom F-86 70mm ARF for $125 shipped. Loaded with 11 servos Includes air retracts. Stock motor is 2836KV. So maybe good enough for this fan. Just need to change out the ESC and SBEC. It's bigger than the 80mm F-86 that you have (had?). Should make an inexpensive test bed.

Check it out:

I just got one and quality is pretty good.

Cheers,
Robert

you testing those on 4S?

im running 6S 2400kv RCL fans on my LX F-18F.
i'd probably drop it down to 2100kv and stay on 6S.
amp draw should be significantly lower than a 4S setup.

I'm the new owner and am installing it in a BH F-5, with E-Flite retracts. Still on the build table right now.
