Need more information. What are the specs? Span, weight, and so on.

OK so this is a ducted fan powered plane.

You may need around a 90mm to 120mm fan unit.

I am in no way a fan expert so this is a guess. You will have to see what fan will fit in there. Here is a link to one.

Might try the electric jet forum for more help then I can give.

Hi,

You are looking at a bigger EDF then a 90-mm. There are at least 2 versions of an electric powered Dynamax fan. If you have a fan unit already you can convert it to electric also. I think Electric Jet Factory has some of the parts. Try searching on here in the electric jets forum. I would also think you will need 12S Li-Po batteries of 5000-6500 MAH capacity. I have 2 of the Bob Violet Models EVF's and they are flawless. Also, Tamjets has some EDF units available. Try searching bvm.com and tamjets.com, you may get a better idea of what you can expect.
