Default Need Help on club members new electric model

A club member is picking up an electric jet in the near future. The jet is a Gulfstream 500 model jet with about 6 foot wingspan with a projected weight of 15-16 pounds. (The club member is well versed in heavy models, and is qualified to fly wet turbine models. This will be his first $$$$ heavy electric model.)

He's looking for decent quality ducted fan motors, and ducted fan units to put into this model. I've recommended the Scorpion line of motors. The club member indicated the ducted fan will be on the order of 90mm or so.

The previous owner of the model indicates the motors for the model should be around 1500 KV, be rated for a 6S LiPo, and should pull about 100 Amps each, for about 2000 Watts each.

General comments everyone for the Scorpion line of motors? Or other brands of motors? (No cheap stuff though ) And Decent quality LiPo 6S1P batteries of about 6000 Mah?

Thanks!

I Like the RC Lander 90mm EDFs, they use metal fan blades and seem to be of Very Good Quality, with out burning a hole in your wallet
