Why is the E28 a failure? The diameter of the tail pipe is a bit too small for a 70mm fan. it should be 55mm min depending on the fan used. What fan are you using? and what motor?

What could possibly go wrong?

Thank you for replying. The motor is: Turnigy 226-3000 70mm and the fan is 70mm, 5 blades.

You're right, opening the tail up to 60mm is much more successful. Thank you.

Scott is 100% correct. We could run the 5b minifan pro down to 54mm, but the best diameter was 56mm. The EVO runs best no less than 56mm. 60mm is 100% FSA. Good for maximum static, but high speed suffers. 100% is needed for high blade count fans such as the CS/XRP types, as they will not tolerate ANY pressure in the exhaust. WeMoTec fans are designed to run in restrictive ducting. Worth the money and sometimes the wait.

Shaping the intake will also give you a lot more thrust.

Basic intake profile is a modified Clark-Y W/LE entry. And it does not have to be thick, unles close to the fan. The further away the lip is located from the fan, the thinner profile it can be. My enlarged Berkeley Crusader had an intake duct 38" long. And it had a 3/32" thk profile. Besides, thick lips only are needed in static operation. As the aircraft gains speed, less air is drawn around the lip.
