And there I was thinking you were getting into helis

8mm should go down to around a 15mm fan wouldn't it? Does anyone make one that small (yet)??

Ody, not commercially, but I should have a design done right after I get the motor.

Dave, you need to get yourself a 3D printer! The way you come up with designs, it'd be running all night :P

You're 2days late nitro

I'm waiting4answer at my forum for the size of the motor but I'm thinking at 6-7mm

When its available ill order one and hope nitro makes me an new shapeways fan combo for my f104 :-)

18-20mm looks nice for this motor at 2cells

EDIT How do you know it's 8mm?

Well, these things are SMALL!!

I've drawn up some fan housings for it and will now measure the mounting screw spacing etc and finish up the file.
