So Billy, can you confirm that there is room for a 5" fan, I am starting to really like the idea of using my Ramtec since I already have a set of Hyperion packs to use with it, plus I can add a 2S as a booster pack to run 14S when I feel the need for speed

120mm adaptor will work perfect with the BVM EVF.

I believe the Ramtec and the Dynamax are the same body size? If so the Dynamax Pro fits into the fuse and plywood cradle well. However the largest adapter will need to be spread about 1/4" to go around the fan or some method otherwise found to accomodate what is essentially a butt joint fit

Excellent! I need to find some 6800mah batteries. Now that XPS isn't selling them I'm not sure where to go for that particular capacity. Any suggestions?

ID on the Dynamax and Ramtec is the same, but the Ramtec is slightly larger in OD, I have both so I tried to fit my Ramtec into the inlet duct I made for my Dynamax powered MiG-15 once, it did not fit. Both fans however are setup the same way, the inlet duct should have the same ID as the fan and slip inside the front of the shroud, on the Ramtec there is a step in the shroud for the duct to sit in, the Dynamax has a taper that will serve the same purpose.
I'll have to get my kit first, but I do have a plan for how I want to do the inlet/fan fit, I will snap some pics and post up once we get there.

Hyperion have 35C 6500mAh's, Thunderpower have 6600mAh's and those two are roughly the same weight as the XPS 6800's. Neu have some 8300mAh's, they are only 100grams more for a 6S pack so the energy density is higher on those cells than the others, you would end up 200grams (7oz.) heavier on a 12S setup but the flight time will be much longer.

Where are the batteries for CoG? Doesn't look like there there is room for saddle packs.

No need for saddle packs, batteries go in front between the inlets, lots of room there.

How would 100mm stumax do in this? Would there be to much drag from intakes?

I would say a 100mm would fly it but not to good.
