Which one did you order? The "windy" model? I have tested their "windy" model and their 40mm model and the 40mm blows much harder.

The 40mm is also about half the price.

Windy at 6 volts blew 5.5 grams and 40mm at 6 volts blows 7+ grams.

The windy model is the one I got. More suits the size I need to get it in.

Cheers for the readings

Good luck with your "windy." I hope it blows harder than mine. I have since moved on to 30mm Yeah Racing Tornado fans. I have tested around 10 of these and they blow as hard if not harder than the " windy" I had and they only cost $7-$10 each shipped usually on ebay. Maybe I had a defective WTF.

I've found the windy fans to be a little temperamental also. They really need direct LiPo voltage and you can mount them too close to a motor (possibly magnet interference)

When they work, they work well. I've moved on to a 40mm now and prefer it.

Exclamation

would you recommend soldering the Fan wires directly to the ESC or to the receiver via JR Plugs?
Looking forward to your response.

Directly to ESC as long as it's designed to take the voltage.
