70mm EDF on a 64mm Exceed Concept X ?

I was just wondering if this was attempted and if it works.

I have a spare 70mm fan unit that I was thinking of using on a bird that is not scale, with a 4S battery.

Any information on this will be much appreciated.

Yep! Here's mine - but it's debatable how well it worked out

Cheers,

Dan.

Thank you very much! Seems awesome.

How many flights do you have on it now? How did you like the flight characteristics? How does it handle low speeds?

Appreciated very much your input!

She's been dead and gone for a while now - radio problems

In-flight handling was good, but slow speed wasn't great. She'd tip-stall pretty easily. Some of the other operators attached wing fences with some success. There is a thread here somewhere ...

Good luck!

Very nice! Thx

How does it fly? I was told the Concept wasn't an acceptable flier, with lots of bad tendencies when slowing down...
