Default is there a 160N/35-36 lb. thrust EDF made?

I'm wondering what the largest EDFs made would be, and asking about one of this thrust output to see if I'll be able to find one for the Yak-17 or Yak-23 I'm planning on building, even though its weight will be far less than the weight, (38.5 lbs.) of Filip's 3 meter/9 ft. wingspan composite construction, as I'd have it done in 3D print. The least expensive reliable ones made, since I'm not rich, will be used. I can't afford $3,000 or more for a gas jet turbine!

wait until you price batteries for a 30-40 pound thrust set up<G>
then weigh them...
then realize that ya need at least 2 sets for a day of 3-5 flights...

a turbine of the same range is going to be cheep.

I get 15 to 18 kilo thrust out of my "Triple", 10kw,127mm central unit with twin 90mm boosters either on 8 or 10S. It is just a 11 foot long foamy Delta jet.
