13.5 lbs installed, that`s a lot of punch for 4.6kw That Turbax rotor may be a little loud, but it sure does work. I also still think it will sound good in the air.

man thats slick B!!!!! that ducting looks awesome!

have you measured eflux?

also, yeah, the turbax is loud, but in the air, like lee said, it will have a nice sound. on the plus side, when your flying with turbines, youll still be able to hear it a little bit, and thats nice. all these quiet fans, you cant hear them when flying with other people.

im really looking forward to your flight report!

Would love to see your battery placements. I have one with the e-Turbax fan in the stock location, could only get 3s 5300s to fit along side the thrust tube and then one 3s where the old hopper tank went (for a total of 9s).

How are you getting 12s on board?
