Everyone loves a centreburner on their EDF and noticed this new range for sale whilst window shopping on RC Castle.

I have no affiliation with the retailer, but it's a store i like very much due to the regional availability of products which are prohibitively expensive to ship from the USA.

The variant I purchased is for the FMS 80mm inrunner, which has an outer diameter of 32mm. The cost was $51AUD ($35USD) plus shipping.

Twin EDF kits run at ~$45USD for inrunners (more expensive due to the mounting solution I assume) and sub $40USD for a twin outrunner setup. For comparison, popular units available from community members are in the vicinity of $50USD (~$75AUD) plus shipping for a single burner kit.

By way of background, I have used RGB led ring-style ABs (which RC Castle also appear to offer under the Cyclone Power brand), purchased units from the community members referenced above, and have DIY'd one based on PeterVRC's wonderful guide here.
