Welcome to RC Groups.
Which EDF size did you purchase? PM me the email address you used and your order # when you purchased the unit and I will look up your order.
lol...They might as well not hide it hunh?

Either way, the vid tells everything about the fans specs...I'd take it down if I were them...might be a good looking product but that vid tells me to stay away for the price\efficiency\thrust.

Notice the amps numbers at the end, unless I'm reading it wrong the thrust numbers didn't go up.

They should know it doesn't matter if it sounds EXACTLY like a turbine if I can do better thrust to watts with HK fans at 1/10th the price...really, if people are going to pay more give them something other than looks especially if you're going to come close to copying another vendors product.

Hmmm, I thought this rotor was machined as 1 piece? If so, how can you remove the blades?

That guy holding the video camera right in front of the dude holding the fan running it up either has balls of steel or his brother was borrowing the family brain cell that day.

BTW, just how many products are vendors allowed to advertise in one hit? I thought it was only one? I reckon this a good case of:

LOL,just show us what Efflux and Taiwan Tornado got, making a comparison on efficiency and dynamic balance effect etc. The more the supplier on these products the better. Wait for such comparison if someone did it.
I believe if the products is truly high-end, sooner or later it will corner the market

The shaft collets for the tornados are different and appear to be "off the shelf" from another source.
From what I know, these fans are from China, and the "Taiwan Tornado" is a trade name given to the product by a USA retailer.

A few folks PM'd, asking if these were made by Mach.
No, the tornado is not a Mach EDF product.

it shows the tornados are not the copy of mach fan, since they are quite different, therefore no need to mix up them due to their alloy material and round form...
