Avanti EDF, what's the difference.

The yellow one has a 12 blade fan and the red a 9 blade. What's the difference? Everything else appears the same. THX

Mainly just the stuff you pointed out.
The 12 blade might be a little faster but the 9 blade should be more power efficient.
Pick your favorite color scheme, you'll have a blast no matter which one you get.
Here is the link to the Avanti group.

They have different motors for starters. Yes the 12 blade is more powerful but this thrust is wasted on the Avanti airframe. It simply doesn’t need the extra thrust and it is hard to notice the difference, it is a fairly draggy airframe so it takes gobs of “more power” to get an appreciable speed increase.
In fact the early FW 80mm fans are plenty of power for the Avanti and longer flight times are possible when you draw less current. I swapped in a F14 fan which has about 15 to 20amps less draw than the stock 12 blade and the Avanti flies fantastic.
