You need all the power you can get...considerable thrust losses are incurred with open duct setups.
Where and how did you do the cheater hole/s? Nosegear door delete?

I think so! I have yet to use full throttle during any flight phase.

No wonder when you are well above 1:1 thrust to weight, is it a 600kV or 650kV motor in that HST fan?
