The 60mm set up was me, it's all posted in the beginning of the thread, I just maidened my flying buddy Bob's Phazer with the same set-up and it was a solid 170 plus. He did some stuff to clean the frame up and is doing more mods for 200, will try to get a video.

I want to build another but need to sell some stuff first, it's defintely worth building a second

I put the 60 fan in a GP F-20 foamie on 4s but it sucks so far lol, will try 6 cell like I used in my Phazer, should wake it right up!

Hard to say, it could be close.

I have only tried with a HST rotor, would be interesting to see the speed on a HDT rotor.

But you know what they say, anything is possible its just a matter of finding the correct setup.

Hello guys, hopefully you can help me out. I just bought one from RCgroups and it did not come with the CG stand. Can someone please give me the recommended CG location in mm? I checked the online manual and it does not state it.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!

Hi Roly.

The C.G. for the Phazer is on page 14 in the instruction manual; 5-1/16" [129m] back from the wing LE @ the fuselage.

I doubt it. Just thinking out loud here...an all-out F5D pylon racer on 5S, about 1700 Watts (static) gets about 205mph - that's a purpose-built, aerodynamic airframe. I don't see being able to get that much power into a 56mm fan without it blowing up. Then, don't know how efficient it would be.
