Nice!

Really, nice!!!

Amazing how an electric fan sounds so much like a turbine. I have heard that sound from some custom made European Airliners. Does it have to do with the internal ducting and the way air is being pushed through it?? I have two large Electric jets, a 70mm and a 90mm, and they sound electric more than turbine, but they use the fuselage itself as a duct as opposed to a duct fitted to the fan. Either way yours is very nice, great performer!!

thanks guys....the sound itself is a combination of the fan system and ducting. the dynamax has a rather specific sound, not at all like that of the low blade count high revving fans.

it has been mistaken for a turbine on a few occasions.

Sure, No Fan Yet Though, And I Just Fitted My Air Tanks This Morning.

I'll Have To Rework It One More Time After I Get The Fan Installed., And Locate Where I'll Place My Battery's. I Always Build A Battery Tray With Velcro And Plywood Plate So I Know No Matter What The Batterys Are Going To Move Period .

It Weights 7.4lbs Right Now
