Jetlegend f-16 1/8 EDF conversion

I have a Jetlegend F-16 1/8 and would like to convert to EDF.

Anyone has experienced or seen a JL conversion?

I am thinking of the new Stumax 100mm fan + Neu 1521 1.5Y as power plant.

My challenge is the inlet being small I heard.

Please advise.

your intake ends up at 90mm, thats 6358mm squared. i think Stu's new 100mm fan has less fsa then this. so i think leaving it the way it is will be fine. Im sure the new Stumax fan will push it around nicely.

Its small and extremely kinked. Totally doable conversion but better with inlet out and ring on fan.
plan power for about 19.5 pounds auw. Will be around there but of ya biod sharp and come under your covered.

Thanks so much for the advice. Any other advice is needed since this is my first large jet project.
