Thanks but making a pate choux is a little more complex than that.

Pate Choux (Éclair Paste)

Ingredients:
Milk1 lb
Butter8 oz
Salt1 tsp
Bread Flour12 oz
Eggs20 oz

Procedu
1. Combine the liquid, butter and salt in a heavy saucepan. Bring the
mixture to a full, rolling boil.
2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the flour all at once, stir quickly.
3. Return the pan to moderate heat and stir vigorously until the dough forms
a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan.
4. Transfer the dough to the bowl of a mixer.
5. With the paddle attachment, mix at low speed until the dough has cooled
slightly. It should be about 140 F, which is still very warm, but not too
hot to touch.
6. At medium Speed, beat the eggs in a little at a time. Add no more than a
quarter of the eggs at once, and wait until they are completely absorbed
before adding more. When all the eggs are absorbed, the paste is ready to
use.
7. Optional - If a sweeter product is desired, add 1/2 ounce sugar in step
one.
Yield should be 3 pounds and 8 ounces.

Drying the dough properly is an important step, as is making sure you don't
cook the first few eggs. After that it is a no-brainer. And I don't use a
blender either.

That sounds like a commercial size lot of choux pastry.

It's possible that it wasn't what we think of as a blender; it might
be how the OP translated "really big Hobart mixer" (or equivalent)
into English.

As Dave pointed out, 30 eggs is a lotta eclairs!

Not really. Pate a choux is one of the simplest pastry doughs going.
Here is the method from a French recipe for pate a choux:

In a pot, place the water, salt and butter; bring to a boil.
Off the heat, add the flour all at once and stir quickly with a wooden
spoon.
When the paste is smooth, lower the heat and cook with stirring for two
minutes.
Off the fire add the eggs one by one and mix.
Let the paste cool before using.

We don't use a mixer but the basic method is the same.
