Which means you're going to need to go to non-RC parts, and things are going to be extremely pricey.
If you want a ton of thrust with minimal power, if you can use a propeller rather than an EDF you could get SOOOOO much more thrust for a given power in.

I and looking into one of lukes CNC kits or something like that so I can cnc the prop mold out of aluminum. I would be fine with speeds below 100 mph lol proly even below 50mph but I need to figure out wing size vs speed and lift first!
