The thick lid on the ESC hole in the fuse bottom reduced the fan noise quite a bit ... that big hole was indeed acting like a resonant cavity
I used Doppler to estimate the speed on the old video and it came at around 106 mph level upwind (in ca. 13 mph headwind).

I've had a few problems with the nosegear setup on my Hawk.
But then, the mains have worked very well so far with no issues, using the stock lightweight struts that came with the kit
The first problem was that I did not put in a tiny screw that prevents the steering servo mount from sliding off the retract mechanism block
That has been fixed now, but it required that I slide out completely the nosegear unit.

The second issue with the nosegear is that a stop built into the retract unit to prevent the strut from bending back too far is not strong enough (it breaks).
I first solved the problem with some foam that got immediately torn off on takeoff (the takeoff seems to put the most stress on my nosegear). That foam got torn off too.
So now I have a massive balsa block stop that prevents the strut from bending back on takeoff
On another unit the chip was loose in the control unit, but that's another story.

Mine had all the blades glued in with Hysol, then precisely re-balanced on a very sensitive magnetic balancer, and tested before installation.
The motor (HET 650) is quality and should last several years ...
I was not planning on taking the EDF unit out anytime soon, it is mounted very securely to reduce vibrations and resonance.
It won't come out easily, some foam would have to be cut, and the mylar exhaust is a problem too.
Generally for foam EDF jets this seems the normal situation, if it's well mounted then it won't come out easily
On composite edfs it's a completely different story. Low cost foam EDFs tend to be "use and recycle" ...
I have EDF jets that have had their fans intsalled for four years (Rafale) and never a reason to take them out - except re-motoring or fod ingestion shredding blades.

... with such a heavy rotor cutting the CS shroud made no sense. It needs that massive shroud to achieve some rigidity and avoid vibrations.
Sorry for explaining to you my reasoning
