Super Bandit EDF

Soon after I released the Super Bandit, I got a request from a fellow Ezoner to design an EDF version—and he even sent me a Wemo Microfan to prime the pump! Needless to say, his bribe worked. Not having any prior experience with EDFs, I set out to learn and this was my first EDF design. I haven't built one myself yet, but I hear it flies well. I've posted pics of some of the models others have built below.

This model was sized specifically for the 50mm Wemo Microfan, but it can be scaled up to any fan by simple scaling by the square of the FSAs (fan swept area) of the two fans. That's the most accurate way to scale (since it preserves the critical inlet and exhaust ratios), but you can also approximate it by scaling by the square of the fan diameters. I've included plans below that are scaled to accommodate the 68mm Wemo Minifan.

Wing area: 124 sq in
Span: 24.2 in
Weight RTF: 12 oz
Wing loading: 14 oz/ft2
Fan unit: Wemo Microfan
Flight controls: Flaperons (or ailerons), elevator

Ooops, you're right. I didn't realize they had stopped producing this kit (they started producing this kit a couple years ago when I first posted it). I'll remove the link, and thanks for letting me know.
