Smallest EDF available?


I'm looking for a small EDF for a new project. The EDF30 would be perfect, but GWS is redesigning the motor mount to accept a motor larger than 10x25mm and it won't be released for a while yet.

Is the EDF40 currently the smallest without making my own?

I saw this on Shredair.com's site, don't know who makes it, say's 1/2" dia Medusa Fan. Has to be one of the smallest EDF's I ever seen.

Actually I think the person that wrote that misunderstood the description. I seem to remember seeing that jet on this forum and I believe it's running an EDF40 and 12mm brushless. 12 mm is about 1/2", so he probably told the writer that he was running a 1/2" dia. brushless motor and the writer mistakenly thought it was a 1/2" fan. A 1/2" fan would be cool, but it would be far too small to fly that F-16 shown in the pics.

And sure enough, here it is:

It's a Guillows conversion and is indeed running a 12mm Medusa in an EDF40.

By the way Justin, if you haven't seen it check out Chris's thread, he made a teeny weeny fan for a teeny weeny jet :
