Default What are ducted fan, lipo battery, esc, motors for "suction car robot"?

Hi
I like to make a suction car as following video:
Suction car robot (2 min 55 sec)

The car works on the principle of a vacuum. There is a high powered ducted fan that pulls air from underneath the flat chassis and expels the air out the top. If this is done at a high enough rate, the fan will try to "suck" more air than can be supplied. This creates "suction" or a vacuum between the chassis and the surface it is riding on.
However, I don't know what are its ducted fan, lipo battery, esc, motors?
And what website can I buy the hardware for it?

Thanks a lot

That's pretty neat.
From what can be seen you could get the electronics from:
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/index.asp
I say this because of the orangeRX but, you could get the parts at any LHS.
I'd contact the maker if you want specific specs on what was used.
Cheers

Edit: He said he used a 64mm EDF. These are $40 from the above site.

There are alot of different components out there a person can use for a setup like this. I am not sure of the specific products in that video. I would recommend asking the question on his YouTube channel. Most guys will help out and let you know what setup they are using.

A ducted fan is a propulsion arrangement whereby a fan, which is a type of propeller, is mounted within a cylindrical shroud or duct. The duct reduces losses in thrust from the tip vortices of the prop, and varying the cross-section of the duct allows the designer to advantageously affect the velocity and pressure of the airflow according to Bernoulli's Principle. Ducted fan propulsion is used in aircraft, airships, airboats, hovercraft and fan packs.
Lithium-ion polymer batteries, polymer lithium ion or more commonly lithium polymer batteries (abbreviated Li-poly, Li-Pol, LiPo, LIP, PLI or LiP) are rechargeable (secondary cell) batteries. LiPo batteries are usually composed of several identical secondary cells in parallel to increase the discharge current capability, and are often available in series "packs" to increase the total available voltage.


Regards.
Andy.
