12s Byron F-16 Build

Hi Guys,

I have read every Byron EDF build on the internet and am now converting my turbine Byron F-16 to EDF. It will have no cheater hole and no front ducting. The plane has never run a byro fan and its not an option.

I am very close to ordering a Stumax 110 for it, however, cannot find any other similar examples with just a lip and no front duct. Any thread I read seems to turn into a battle of the retailers of each fan.

Has anyone compared the 120-130mm edf's on 12S to see which is the current leader in performance?

Below are the fans I have been looking at:

SM110-45 - Favorite
EXTREME 127MM CNC ALLOY RAMTEC FAN
Dynamax Xtreme PRO 2

Probably 700USD max for motor fan combo.

I have the stumax 110-45 in an F-5 with a lip on the fan. About a 5 inch gap from the ducting to the fan. Its not the optimum set up for Stu's fan but it works!!

Also have a Byron Mig 15 with the xps hacker set up on 10s, with air sally's inlet ring and no ducting, but still have the cheater hole. Flies nice and scale at 14 lbs.
