Go for R1 wurks 8.4v!
It will give u even more than 11CFM.
Extremely powerful.

I posted in the last thread that you asked about this but you can get wtf fans in the uk. Keith at much more racing is the uk importer. Give him a call.

I also thought MuchMore Racing were the importer, but according to the WTF website, the importer is RCRACINGUK, and they are showing no stock! I cant find a single one in the UK....not good!

Just put the F5 in my car. Had the R1wurks. R1 is the way to go for the money. But the F5 does push more air, both being hooked to the battery.

Rcracinguk and much more uk are the same person. Would suggest calling or e mailing direct.

You can buy direct off wtf.
we had 6 windy trumpet fans fail on race day, last sunday.
1 didnt work straight out of the packet, the others failed during races. Not good for a motor.
they were run of the lipo. Mine ran for 5 min then started and stoped every few seconds. I contacted wtf and they are sending a replacement fan to me.
quick response to my concern.
i have put my 40mm wtf on via the receiver. I run tekin rsx so my output is set to 7.4v
the 40 is pumping out more air than the windy trumpet directly wired.
also the best motor mount is the orca one

I blew up two WTF fans too. Push a lot of air when they work.

I have two WTF 4x4cm fans, one in each TC.

One stopped working (stopped/started) shortly after, got a replacement.

Hope not it is a general WTF issue, though.

And yes, they push a lot of air.

I have mine plugged into my recievers (6V).

Had the 3rd 30mm WTF die last week.

I have had one good one which lasted a few months the other 2 were dead almost immediately out of the packet.

Save your money and just get small pc cooling fans with two cables. I am using two 6V fans for 2 years now and just one died in an huge accident. The other one does very well after a lot of crashes indoor and outdoor. One costed about 2...

Do you mean a fan with the capacity like the ones that sits on an ESC? They are not powerfull enough.
