Hey Don, as soon as you get the fan issue figured out let me know. I will get another and instead of a pusher I will buy a couple of your setups.

Thanks Joe, it looks like these units:

ADF30-100 PLUS 10000KV
http://www.aeorc.com/english/?product-369.html

Looks like the Black Friday deal was a good one for the A-10 based on the cost of one fan unit!

I don't understand? I don't have any 30mm setups I am selling.

Those are the ones. That was a pretty good deal, they must have been dumping stock. Those fans and motors pull 12A a piece so the warthog is an amphog.

24 amps in a model this size is just stupid. Not sure what they were thinking. I got one of the early EPS versions and it was OK. Very fragile but flew OK. Very hard to find good micro EDF power systems unless you are one of those guys who can wind motors, build custom fans etc etc...

flew mine in very cold weather near sea level. I'm amazed at how much more lift the plane has in cold, dense air. I had a hard time getting it to come down for a landing. I can definately fly slower with full control. It makes this plane behave totally different. I'll bet in this weather, the pusher prop version would be a pooch.

After whipping the 800 mAh 30C packs for about a year, they were beginning to show their age. I have to say that these packs took some serious abuse and still held up fairly well. They have been relegated to light duty use in a lighweight foamy.

The new 40C discharge packs are substantially better. The plane has much more power, it can even pull vertical for some brief periods.... not unlimited, but enough to do some nice manouvers. The extra power really makes this scoot. I wish I had ordered these sooner.
The airframe has nosed in quite a few times due to flying it down to the LVC. Simple hot water to reshape the parts and some glue and it keeps going. I need to take another video of this plane. Night and day difference.

I wonder how this airframe will do on the Flyzone 30mm fan or maybe the slightly smaller one from the Eflite? Seems like those should cut the draw down considerably but not sure what the thrust is because none of us have them yet. What about the fans the NitroCharged sells on Shapeways and a 12mm or 10mm brushless?

I have a JPower 35mm fan and it will fit with just a little opening of the nacelle. The twin 35mm fans would cut amp draw to around 16 amps on 3s and performance should be quite good.

I'll read the thread when I get home and see if I have other questions.

I was hoping you would make magic but that's ok, mine is still ripping up the sky to this day (even with a prop)

It really makes me wonder how good her vids would be with a decent camera.

on a side note, I am putting together another airframe as a pusher prop, I'll do a comparison of the two when done.
