(NEW) ARSON 153mm EDF
I would like to welcome the new ARSON EDF, the ultimate electrical ducted fan unit. The ARSON EDF is a 153mm fan with a modular interchangeable 18 blade impeller. This impeller can be interchanged from the stock 18 blade to a 9 blade impeller or 6 blade fan system. This modular change can be done by removing the blades and adding a patented spacer to meet the needs of your desired model requirements.
As homage to the great R/C model builder Byron Leroy Godbersen, founder of the Byron Original, the ARSON EDF was designed based on the simplistic design of the Byron fan. A decision in 2007 to convert the Byron F-15 into an EDF with the introduction of more reliable and powerful batteries and motor units was implemented and upon it's completion was clear; the Byron F-15 had new life!
During the time spent operating the Byron F-15, there were notable deficiencies in the Byron fan itself. After many successful flights, the model was lost and upon review and inspection of the wreckage, it was determined that the Byron fan stators with the edf conversion failed, losing one engine in midflight which made for a spectacular hole in the ground. Thus, the quest to build what is now the ARSON EDF was initiated. Several factors were taken into account such as the same dimensions were needed as the Byron Fan, the Fan had to produce at least twice the thrust that the Byron/Scorpion combination was producing, it had to have the reliability and stability behind the power, and most of all, had to have character. This fan must be attractive enough to be proud to install in your model.
After years of trial and error a good concept began to develop and the final product has become a first of its kind. A modular EDF unit, the ARSON EDF, comes with a standard 18 blade impeller designed to transform itself to a 9 or 6 blade impeller to suit your EDF/Model requirements. By designing 2 different impeller spacers, the modeler can separate the fan and install spacers for their desired impeller design.
Depending on the response I receive on this post, this will gauge the production of the unit in the marketplace. If you have an interest in purchasing the ARSON EDF, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can send me a PM. Iíve included a few photos of the ARSON EDF which is scheduled to launch the production phase on or about December 1, 2012. Just in time for Christmas!! We will be posting videos and performance data of the prototype by October 1, 2012.
If you are also interested in following our progress, please visit our website and blog located at www.arsonedf.com starting September 1, 2012. In the meantime, send us an email to email@example.com or PM to receive updates and information.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

The performance specs, videos and pricing will be posted early September. The pricing is very competitive and will be less than the EVF and some other smaller EDF systems. If this information becomes available sooner, I will post immediately on this thread.
In reference to the HET tyhoon 800 here's the link.
Also, we'd like your input on your preference of high performance motors if they are different than the ones that were already posted.
If the rotor cost is kept competitive I'm all in, seems like it'll work with regular Byron shroud.
Will you be making adapters for regular Byron shroud?
Old Byron fan tested at 17.2lbs 3700 watts...
~20lbs at 4100 watts, that's a 55usd esc running with head room
EDF is getting VERY VERY interesting
Socshooter, what would make this more interesting is a shroud with no lip ....straight...I can show you pics why..

This should be something to keep an eye on.
