Remember there is an Up and Down to your unit!
I cut the area were the intakes join, both to allow the Hub in and to reduce the high pitch whine. The gap between the intakes must be joined. Do not allow fuesalage air to be drawn in(or should I say, compressed air to escape). This will lessen your thrust.
I think the hardest part now, will be to install and tape up the Thrust tube.
I agree with keeping the intake airtight except when the ESC needs air flow.I just posted on the habu a solution I use when the ESC gets HOT. I usually seal in a small CF tube between the ducts to suck some air over the packs and esc. I know you lose some air velocity but it has allways been a better trade off for me than cutting inlet and outlet vents or swinging it behind the motor.
Great build photos V. I'm expecting mine to arrive today or tomorrow.J
