Hi, I want to know what twin electric duct fans motors could be used on a profile, I Beam style wing model of 59" that was original powered by a 40 glow engine? Thank you, Mike

What is the weight of the plane ready to fly? I'd think 2 64mm fans might be more than adequate but really not sure base on the information...

Hi Mattnew, I changed the wing span from being 54" to 59". The weight without engine is 38 ozs. Thanks for the response. Mike

with engines and batteries and electronics your probably around 5-6 lbs... use eCalc, and start looking at thrust numbers from different setups... you'll need ~4-5lbs of thrust which would give you 2-2.5lbs of thrust per unit... which seems to be right in the range of 64mm fans from the quick look I took...
