So what size fan would go in there and what's a good motor? I'm assuming a 90mm would be too small based on the weight.

They were designed originally for glow Turbax so an E-Turbax is a drop in fit.

I've started mine. (I got it for $80.00 on E-Bay - I'm calling it the "E-BAE Hawk". Sorry, horrible pun).

The "instructions" are laughable, so we could use any help.

I'm still tryng to decide between 90mm and 120mm. The outlet would only be 75% for a 120mm fan. I figured about 2000W with the appropriate Neu motor and a Midi fan would work fine. (Moto-Calc seems to think the MF can take it).

However, I'm tempted to try the United Hobbies 120mm fan, and possibly an outrunner.

Tremendously cheaper than TF4000 or E-Turbax. (But will it hold up?)

I think the thing will need at least 1500-2000 watts to fly with authority.

Should I start posting some pix?

we always like pix! And keep an eye on this guy if someone is looking for one, if your patient you can scoop one up for under 200. They can for for 120 to 130 then theres about 75 for shipping. He always has them up for sale.

I didn't think the instructions were that bad, better then average. I passed on buying one, I wasn't impressed with the speed results I saw on some of the videos for the e-conversion.

Hey, thanks for the .pdf link. The manual that came with mine was in 5X6 size, B&W and blurry, had the appearance of several generations of photocopying. I usually ignore the manual eventually anyway! Anyway, for $80.00, I won't complain, the workmanship is quite decent.

Re: the speed, I'm not interested in raw speed - I like smooth and relaxed flying. For example, my HET F-18 is almost too fast for what I enjoy, so this thing will probably be about right for me.
