Too much fan, not enough air flow .... simple. With that much fan and being air flow starved, it makes matter even worse by causing turbulence in front of the EDF, so even less thrust. I haven't...

You rotate the pictures with a photo editor BEFOREyou upload them.

It's free and the best simple editor around (for a couple decades now) - Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/)
