Looks like the intakes will feed a 5" fan.

A good 90mm sport jet...just what I've been waiting for. Somehow looks different to the old Sniper but the scheme could be deceptive. I never did like the way the nose appeared to long and slim. Will keep an eye on ejf.com for its release. Any idea when?

Yep that`s been an issue with all of the Snipers. The 70mm was designed whenn they thought you needed 120% fsa to feed a fan, and they`ve never down sized them.

This is quite a bit bigger than the original, could they do the ducting for a 100mm fan?

Dang! Suddenly that HK Hawk is not so much of a must have...
FLip Flop looks like a great candidate for that new CS 90mm fan?

Robert can you give us a hint on the price tag?

It wouldn`t be hard to make an adapter/extention to mate with a 100mm fan. The fan probably needs to be moved back anyway.

My guess on the price is $350 like their F-16 and L-39, but since the wing is also glass, it may even be more. Hopefully they`ll keep it at $350.

Awesome! Just wish it came out a few years ago before I spent all the time designing my own the same size. I am sure this will be very popular.

Well now that the secret's out...

A.) Yes, the intakes are a little large for a 90mm, but I'm still aiming realistically for about 150+mph on the stock HET 9305V2 fan and Typhoon 700 series motors.

B.) Yes it is sweet! Sorry for keeping it on the DL... but sometimes we have to wait for the *OK* from the factory before letting these puppies off the chain!

Sniper is complete, just waiting for a good day to maiden. Then I'll start posting a build thread here! Any more questions, please feel free to ask!

Vic
