Who wants a 55mm fan when you can have a 70mm with no more work than placement??

I didn't know it was that easy. I thought there would have been some modification necessary to fit a 70mm fan. I wanted to get one of these and put a Sapac 70mm fan in. If it'll drop right in then I'm golden. I didn't want to start carving/sanding foam to get it to fit.

I used the same set from that thread:

I had tried a 70mm Wemotech fan in mine and it didnt fit just right. it was a tad too big without modding it. if you have rigged your back hatch to screw down instead of gluing it down, you can get it to fit, but there is a small gap in between the hatch and the body. so shaving off a little foam would help. the 70mm fan that is in the squall though might fit better.

i had that same issue a couple f16's ago and i think increasing the ail mix (but not ele mix) and adding differential helped.
thanks, I will give this a try.

Thanks Nickel. I appreciate your input. I hope I can buy one of these jets soon so I can try it out. Thanks again!

Thanks for the heads up jmrust! I just ordered two! I wonder why they are blowing them out like this? I hope they aren't getting discontinued, although I would have a hard time believing that. I'd say they are just a little bit popular I wonder if these are going to be the old 56mm fan or the new elusive 70mm fan?

Thanks for posting them, db1. I used a couple of your markings on mine.

The foam is the same...both fans fit. I'm scared that I'm gonna get an email that says it was an error! There are some good deals there....a squall w/ fan, esc, and motor for $20!!!

I see some profits in my future....just don't spread the word too wide
