From the Kontronic spreadsheet I'd say you'll see an efflux of 90+ mph and static thrust of +20 ounces.

Take some video - I'd like to see it in action. Especially its vertical performance!

at 140 watts with a B20 18L in the wattage fan it goes VERY well with big vertical. The minifan will be huge on there.

80 F in Puerto Rico, you say? Well, it's 70 F here. Lotsa green, too!






um ... in my house, that is.







Outside it's, well .... er ... (x1.8+32) 0 degrees farenheit including windchill. And mostly grey/brown.

the more I thought about this, the more I'm thinking you're going to need a bungee. the weight will be several ounces higher and with the light wattage fan and 3 cells it needs a good hard throw allready.
