New old stock Sapac 70mm edf units


I have several new, stock, MB1 sapac edf units. Three with the blue motors, balanced, no tailcone or nosecone and one with the tailcone and nosecone unbalanced and unassembled.$45 for this one. None have intake rings as the rings weren't used in the kits. I'm sure you could find a ring to fit if you were so inclined. These are all light, FRP, 5 bladed fans with no mounting tabs. Strong, inexpensive fans if that is what you are after. Shipping on me. Conus only, Paypal only. Thanks. I'll add some photos of the real fans if there is any interest.

These are for 4S. Recommended battery is 3700mah 25C or better and the recommended ESC is 80 amps. I've heard of people pushing these fans into the 5/6lb thrust range but that seems a bit of a stretch.. I'll have to look for the motor kv. As for now that is all I have. I have 100amp ESCs for these also if anyone needs them. For supercheap!

Hi, Very interested in one of these along with an ESC . Is there any measurable performance difference as far as having the nose and tail cones? Are you able to balance this unit? Plan would be to use this set up in an old eflite f-86 arf kit. Thanks ...rob.

David, this is my setup of two of these on 4s, hopefully it helps your sale seeing them in action


Rob, I would use the tailcone as it covers the motor

Pmd Rob and thanks again Ace, I agree. Thanks for the video. I've never personally used the sapac edf with the nose/tailcone. Only the blue motor, stipped-down type included in their V2 kits.

Thanks, ace... it looks like I will be getting the unit with the Tailcone. Perfect timing as far as this post as there are virtually no 70 mm power systems out there at the moment . I had a number of sapac jets back in the day and I was always happy with The motors and fan units

David, very welcome, if I didn't already have three I would buy one or two, still might lol.

Rob, the F86 is perfect for this, I have one I need to finish fixing up, I flew one for two years then sold it at Eweek. It flies great but add some spolieron mix in your radio for ailerons as it likes to roll a long way . Also take off scale like, long roll out

Also, the motors are know as Mb1 and can take up to 1200 watts on 5s. They were pre balanced as well
