What do I need in fans and batteries to have the cut and sanded parts that weigh 5.0#, only foam parts. Normal wind and speeds. Thanks.

I'd look in the Ducted Fan forum in RC Groups.

Try here too: http://www.schuebeler-jets.de/

I'm really guessing but if you end up with an AUW of 7lb or so you'll need at least 400W per motor - that's some very expensive fans (DS-51?), massively powerful motors (Lehners, Plettenbergs or big Hackers), expensive ESC's, and humungous batteries (5s/6s or 16-20 cells) to supply 800W at 40A-50A.

Thank you Dr. Kiwi. Back to glow DF's. I tried. I have a 72" China Clipper in white Styro and 4-400's. Good stable plane. --------I had no idea the A-10 sport flier would cost so much more money
