I should also point out that while I agree with the above statements about the CS fan, I think it's also prudent to point out that for ultra reliability, plug and play ease, etc, you can't beat a Wemo combo. I love the look and sound of the 12 bladers though.

I am gonna disagree. IF you need more performance then units like the HET or Wemo 90mm are the ones you want. The CS sounds better but I would venture to say it will not perform as well.

I have used this combo in a few models with great results.
It should be less than $90 with shipping but that will leave some $ for connectors

I don't see thrust\watts numbers any different than wemo or HET with the CS fans and correct KV motor.

There are videos on YT proving thrust\watt numbers that are VERY similar to Wemo and HET

I've used a number of wemo midi style fans over the last 2 years with good success and tested a number of motors in the new CS 12 blade 90mm fan. Have also tested the factory "1600kv" setup. I have test flown the CS 12 blade on a 1400kv motor and the amp draw is higher for the thrust produced by around 10% (compared to the wemo fans). It does equate to shorter flight times.
Although the CS is less efficient, I do think the sound is worth switching for in some applications. If you need all out performance the wemo fan is still king but if you are willing to sacrifice some air time the CS will put a smile on your face (due to its pleasant sound).
Cheers Eric

I can vouch for the Wemo midi fan and Arc motor combo. I run 8s but I believe they have a 6s motor as well. The Midi in my JTM L-39 actually sounds pretty good. Not too whiny at all.

Where does one get a plug and play 6s Wemo combo?

I don't know how to balance a fan yet

The Freewing fan/motor I posted above is balanced pretty well right out of the box. The only thing I recommend is use locktite on the set screws and spinner screw. Do not over tighten the spinner screw or the plastic spinner will crack. On 6S it gives decent performance for most 90mm foamies. If you go to a heavier composite jet you will need 8S or higher along with a high voltage ESC.
Balancing a fan isn't really that hard but The freewing 90mm fan is a clone of the wemo midi fan.
Cheers

The Wemos are balanced, just bolt in the ARC motor. Nothing can beat it. All I use is the ARC 36 motor, for 6s. If I remember correctly over 7lbs thrust. I have to admit, most uses are for large size, 7 lb plus, foamies.

Scale fan,
got a link?? or two? i'm leaning towards the cs unit, but no money has been spent yet....
this is for a Koyosho f-86 that was originally a glow powered .25. I saw one fly when it first came out, and it was an underpowered dog, but with a e.d.f. this plane has alot of potential. also retracts are a possibility now..

4 stripes,
i put all those links on my list. they are not in stock now, but i'm not in a rush to get this one in the air.
i want this one to perform scale-like, not just be a beast.....i'm thinking this plane gonna weigh about
4 lbs, maybe a tad more. the cs fan set-up on 6 cell should do the trick right?
