Some important differences:

Het 2W-25 2720kv is an inrunner - inrunners generally draw less current than outrunners at the same RPM, generate less torque and is more efficient at higher RPM's.

Het 2W-25 2720kv is rated at 1100W with a 6S battery - has no problem when derated at 4S. The HK motor is iffy, in my opinion,

Throw the setup on a wattmeter and see what it pulls from the battery ...

OK, put the watt meter( Turnigy) on my F-18 today with a Skylipo 4s 40c 3000mah batt she pulled a peak of 68 amps and 1100 watts and settled to 63 amps and 1023 watts WOT for around 10sec. I forgot to watch the volts, sorry. In any event I fly for 4min and land with 3.8v to 3.7v per cell across the board and the batt is just warm. The motor is a HET 2W-20 with an 80amp Hobby-wing pro esc. Stock fan and Skyworld aluminum shroud.

I got a l2855 2100 but i went with the Eflite bl15 bc the turnigy motor is rated at 42a and i think thats gonna be a little too low with the CS....i have heard of the bl15 on the CS fan but i got it on the eflite fan and its balanced already so i am going this route first. if i get crazy i may switch the eflite over to the CS later...

By the way, i am not home and looking at batteries online...anyone have the measurement for the battery bay available?

Flew my F-18 (bellylander) with new CS fan and I was quite pleased with the performance. Improved thrust,speed & sound. I will be using CS fans in all my 70mm EDFs.

Since when? Trust me, I wish I had video of that flight. I used a 3000KV motor.
It was well worth the switch from an RC Lander fan (Which I have vids of BTW)

What setup will you be using with the BL-15? (battery, ESC). I curious how many minutes of flight time you will get and the amps.

W 3000mah 4s lipo and 450mah 3s lipo (bec) = 1253 grams/ 44.20 oz.

I will be running it in the E-Flite delta v fan (possibly try the CS later) and i am gonna run 2 2s 3300mah 30c in series. (4s 3300mah 30c) may later bump up to a 5s and add a 3s battery to the equation for the series.

Cool. Let me know what the performance is like and how much flight time you get.

Have no good way to weigh my plane or I'd throw you some figures too.
