Hey guys,

Is one of these necessarily any better than the other? I'm going to be ordering an aluminum fan for my R60 even before I begin the build process, but I'm torn between which one to buy considering their prices are pretty close to each other.

Thanks,

Mike

Here are the differences:
Quick UK:
Uses taper collar to fit engine shaft, no threads.
Has hole already installed for GV1 magnet

Thundertiger
Threads onto engine shaft
No hole for GV1 magnet, if using optical sensor, TT preferred

Other than that they both work great. I use the TT and have had 0 problems.

Thanks Daz......

Now here's another question. Is a tapered collar better than a thread or vice versa?

Well I have never used the Quick UK fan, but from what others have said(Raptordriver) he likes it. Personally, I prefer a fan that threads onto the shaft, that way you dont have to worry about slipping, and runout. Mavrikk just came out with a new fan for the Raptor 60 also that looks pretty good too, the TT and Quk fan are proven though!!!

Hmmm.....considering I'm not a huge fan of runout either, maybe the TT fan is the way to go. Thanks for the tip on the Maverick unit, but I think I'll take a pass on that one. Thus far I have not exactly been impressed with the quality of the Maverick line.

Hey dudes

I decided to get the quick Fan as a friend had the TT.
I found that the Fan was excellent! It still has thread at the top but a wider diameter at the bottom and thats where the collet comes into play. Did take a little longer to get it running true but I feel it was well worth the extra time

I have Taken the thing of twice now with no prblems But in saying that I have seen other people saying getting it off was a right pain in the ass.

Either I have done something right(for a change) or i've done it wrong.

Appology

Iam very sorry Dokey I did not realise who I was talking too , I think I will just go and curl up under my stone . I do not want to start any ill feeling and I would like to appologise if I have spoken out of turn , it just winds me up when people take the piss out of British companies who try very hard to get things right , and I do not think they deserve remarks such as "oh yes remove with hammer never fails"........But sorry again Dokey I'll leave it at that thanx.........

No probs Heliman, was just having a laugh, didnt wish to upset anyone.

I agree with British companies, they do try hard and Quickuk is one of the ones that are doing a fantastic job, wish there was just more like quickuk around.

Happy flying, Ryan.
