all i can add, is the bob ruff adapter is a good piece of equipment, if ya want to keep the byron fan, and not go with one of the smaller electric setups.
also, if ya know anyone interested, i have an F-68 started kit i picked up in a trade. retract version. i would let go rather cheep.

Thanks for reply Mongo. The mig i just rebuilt was a 3 month project. I used the Byron fan with an Turnigy Sk-3 helidrive 600 kv with excellent results and plan on using on the F-16 if i can keep the weight down to 15 lbs or so. I wanted to share my build and power system results to anyone considering doing a mig conversion.More importantly, iam looking for info on someone who has built an F-16 using byro fan.Servo location- retracts-c.g and so on would be usefull info.Tempting offer on your Byron and if still available after i finish the Falcon i will keep it in mind.I live in Fla. so shipping can be expensive though.I will be contacting Bob for adaptor soon as i know ex actly which motor im going with.
