I hope you know you voided the warranty. You could have made it lighter with lightening holes in strategic places. Here is something for you guys to think about. About 15 years ago a guy I ran into at The Hobby Shop in Dayton suggested taking a bunch of box fans and lay them out on the floor with stand offs so you would have a large thermal field where you could fly tine RC preferably scale planes, not unlike the chambers that they use for sky diving training except it wouldn't have to be enclosed. When he suggested it I said great and everyone could provide four fans so the more the merrier. I wish it had been my idea but a great idea is a great idea. You guys could actually do this say at Columbus next year or at any largish indoor place.( note to self , use a big word to replace any largish indoor place) I see the planes flying from 2 to 10 feet or higher above the surface and doing aerobatics and possibly dog fighting with WW I and WW II and jet eras. In Great Britain in particular fly scale slope soaring aircraft may still be very popular . They called it PSS I think in the magazines but I always referred to them as pissers. Think about it. This is my challenge to you. This could be a new hobby and since you need a lot of fans, no pun intended, this would be great for creating more clubs or use existing indoor clubs such as quad races who are dumb enough to try anything. Did I type that out loud? Since this was first suggested to me 3d printing has become very popular and since the updraft is probably at least 5 times what a full scale glider pilot would need to climb it is probably likely that all plastic , 3D printed for lightness would become an additional interest. My thoughts, 16 people = 64 fans = 16 foot square flying area with out spacing. Model size? Peanut size for a basic size but not limited. Wing loading could be pretty high and still fly. Here's a guy who has the right idea for 3D printing - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2781182 Please let me know what you think. Here is one of my small EDF's being maidened by Dave Thacker outside his shop across from the Air Force Museum. The plane is depron so planes could be simple or much more complex than this Coander (sp?) design. This plane without fan and the3 big 450 mah battery and you have a floater. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiUKZyR85xU

Sweet. Blew me away. I was wondering what could be used that is lighter than plywood that you used for rigidity? I was thinking some kind of plastic. You can get it fairly cheap at Tap Plastics. A lot of times they have scrap that you may be able to get. Very rigid and can be assembled the same as you did the plywood. "Suggestion for future project." Turbocharger off a heavy-duty diesel truck like a Peterbilt. Make the turbo into a jet engine and put it on a go cart. Similar projects have already been done but not very well from what I have seen. They make great jet engines.

It doesn't count anymore because you threw away all the original fan parts. Even though the motors are not DC, you could have just turbocharged them by running 240 volts.

When you work on a project and have success at any level the first time "kudos" for that but this crew nails it on most of their projects and usually to a high degree of success. SUPER KUDO'S. I think it is time to pull out the flying chair again, Then sit down on it and fly fly away.

The wood and the added metal was NOT necessary. You can see for yourself by rebuilding the frame without these and supporting the fan on blocks set under the motors. This will not flex the frame which is how the frame is supported in flight any way.

You didn't use box fans to make a drone, you used the frames from box fans to make a drone! And THAT'S why I'm done @ the 1:00 mark! If you had put a coating of something on the blades to make them firmer, and just tweaked the motor, THEN you would have made a drone out of box fans, but that's not even close to what you did! It's still kinda cool, but you only used the frames, so I don't think it counts!

To all you people saying that they cheated/didn't make a boxfan fly....It was implied from the start that the video they got the idea from was obviously fake. Because it would never work. Duh? A BOX FAN CAN'T FLY. Not one, not four. Of course they'd have to strip the guts out. Duhhhh. Though I bet they could've kept the screens if they cut some squares out/lightened the frames by cutting holes in the inside edges with a hole saw.
