I don't know how much intake area there already is, so I don't know how much extra area is needed; (do you have one to measure?)
These are just some

ideas and may not be feasible.
I have the CARF Viperjet and marvel at the lightness and strength. Gotta be an EDF option on this one, somehow....

Im sure Daniel gives an inlet area on his website, on the CARF Hawk I was worried it would be a little on the small size so I opened up all the ducts, put slots in the inlet splitters, knew the nose doors were open at take off etc. Im sure you can find away if you want it EDF. With the inlet duct fitted to the fan it smooths out any air just before it gets to the fan

Anyone using CMJets smoke tank in the Carf version? Does it get in the way of installing the wing bolts?

Based on these pics, I can't see how it wouldn't interfere. You'd have to make it removable somehow...My Pro will have smoke, but my classic will be KISS.

Looks like it will be in the way of putting in the wing bolts from those pictures.

I have CM Jets tanks in mine, but I have the Pirotti version. When I was putting it together I planned to install smoke from the beginning. So, I deliberately made the wing bolts accessible from the wheel well. I added a ply block to the tank side/inside and hysol'd blind nuts. It's simple and quick to do.

This is a pic directly off the CARF sight. It appears that they do not attach the wings the same way as the rebel HOT, as the blind nut is in the fuse and not the wing, and the wing bolts are installed in the wheel well, so the smoke tank location shouldn't be an issue.

Yes. On my Rebel HOT, it enters through the fuselage.

Nice! Ray said there are only a couple in the states currently. Mine's in the current container along with my classic. I was going to start a thread to discuss the quality improvements/ assembly differences over the Pirotti. You're welcome to beat me to it.

I definitely prefer bolts in the fuse like this. But it definitely makes for problems having a smoke tank there.

I never build a Pirotti RP so I wont be doing that.....and that would be of little use anyway, this is CARF and it shows....lots of differences some seem good some seem CARF Lol.....

Some pictures of mine. Must say the quality is pretty spectacular. CARF have done a good job.

I thought about doing this too at first, but then decided against it with the tank being a normal squeeze seal and bolt in. Figured I wouldn't be able to see any leaks or bolts coming loose if I did. I just made a lip long enough for a few things, but not too far.

Comp-ARF did a wonderful job on my two custom scheme Rebels, one a classic, the other a Pro. I will probably start on the Pro first because I already have servos for it

That's not larger, that's smaller!!!
Stock tank is 3.6 liters. If you meant 3.9L instead of 2.9L, then no, no issue. In fact CMjets sells a 4L kevlar tank for it:

Bodywerks, you are absolutely correct. I got my wires crossed between the Classic and Hot lol.
