Best 90mm fan/motor, Recommended Electric Retracts for 90mm Super Sniper???

What is the best 90mm fan/motor combo???....I'm going to install it in a Super Sniper....I do not need the most expensive, just a good RELIABLE setup from Hobby King or whatever...I plan on using 6s for power...

Please tell me your 90mm setup!!!!....(Batteries, fan, motor, etc...)....It doesn't have to be in a Super Sniper and videos are encouraged!!!

Also---I want to install electric retracts...Any recommendations???

TIA!!! Kevin

Kevin, I am a really happy with my wemotec 90mm fan, it comes dynamically balanced which is nice! I am using an HET motor it is a 600 series I think it’s the 600-37 and I am running a Castle Ice 100, on 7s It puts out 2200 watts and lots of thrust. Max temps I am hitting are about 120-130 degrees in 90 degree weather. This set up is good for 5 min flight times with 5000 mah batteries, maybe longer times but have not had the chance to really experiment yet! I am ok with the Turnigy/ HobbyKing batteries and have had lots of success with them but I wouldn’t do a cheap fan! Even on just 6s you are turning some pretty serious RPM’s and you don’t want that baby coming apart! The Wemotec is not the most advanced fan out there but it is reasonably priced and is a tried and true proven performer!

Wemotec 90mm is awesome.
Stay away from the Turnigy motors. I just burnt one up and it wasn't even running that hard.
ARC & MEGA both make a very fine motor that will perform and last. Not too expensive either.
Turnigy would be fine for batteries and the ESC, just not the motor!
