Default Combat Models A-10

What is the best gear to use to convert my Combat Models A-10 to twin electric? I have a pair of Kress Jet fans, but was wondering if the Wemotec's might be a better deal. Should I run one ESC or two? Which brushless motors would you recommend?

Admittedly I am not the expert with ducted fans but I can answer some of this question. First if using two motors you will need two ESC's. Brushless motors typically do not operate well when sharing one esc. IN order to determine what motors you will need we first have to talk about the model. Please give me specs. I need wingspan wing area, estimated flying weight and what battery you plan on using. For the ducted fans, what motors do they suggest and what estimated thrust is available from each setup. If you do not have this, please give me the type of motor used (size will do) the operating RPM of the ducted fan and how many blades does the ducted fan have.
