Lt. Max said:my friend put 36 volts to his 60x60x10 mm fan and it worked.. crazy air went thru too
anyone else done such?

I don't think so, but the possibility is there that if given enough thrust over time that the hub assembly (what the blades connect to too connect with the fan) will produce enough thrust to just pull itself off the shaft of the motor. Personally I wouldn't risk it. I've been struck in the head with a large R/C propeller. The 4-stroke motor backfired due to too low of an idle speed and fuel starvation (my fault). The shaft spun backwards which unwinds the propeller off the shaft.
That has nothing to do with this, but the warning still stands. You would have to be using a computer fan which has more motor than the blades want to use. I bet it could be a concern with the fastest deltas if they were over volted too far and didn't burn up.
Bad things happen to spinning objects when they're spun faster than they're designed to do. In a worst case scenario which a computer fan motor couldn't pull off. The blades will shatter from G forces spewing fragments everywhere causing much destruction. (Think fragmentation grenade)
That has nothing to do with this also<g>. Just more worse case scenario.
So what I'm warning yall not to do is combine these fan hubs with any type of R/C electric or gas/glow motor, or any other type of higher output driving device that is more powerful than the stock motor the fan assembly comes off of.
What is neat is that some EDJ (Electric Ducted Fan's) can pull 1400+ watts and spin upwards of 35k RPM. If you want airflow<g> there ya go.
