Well I am finally getting a chance to finish this project so I thought I would post the results to rap up this thread. In the end the YEP 120 amp 8S ESC was chosen to handle the power but after the issues that 4stripes had with his YEP ESC on his F86 thread I am questioning my decision. Everything worked fine on the test stand so hopefully I will have no issues in the aircraft. Of interest is that the YEP ESCs come preset for helicopters so you will definitely need the program card to set it up. This is pretty straight forward. After several warnings from Eric about the older version of the CS fan not being able to take high RPMs, I took his advice and purchased a newer CS fan to be safe. This is mated up to a Turnigy SK3 3969-1500Kv 8s for power. The edf/motor/YEP ESC was run on a test stand (DR Mad Thrust Stand) with a couple of older 2 X 4000 mah 25C Turnigy 4S batteries in series. I was getting 2.9kg of thrust at 89amps and 2628 watts. Hopefully some fresh higher C batteries will bring this up over 3kg. Although the motor and ESC were barely warm, I added a heat sink to the motor and will add one to the ESC as well. I am not sure why they don't put one on these higher power ESCs.

Thanks for all the input guys.
