thinking about it.

i will need to part build the fuselage first and then fit two edf's and have a play.

then decide after some thrust tests.

I worked on these for five years - watching with interest. Is it going to have the kinked leading edge with droopy outer sections?

not sure, just a semi scale model, not trying to re create an actual aircraft as such.

more an experiment to see if it will work.

That's an interesting challenge Tony, good luck. Definitely one where a chuck glider will be useful in getting some of the basics such as c of g right. The "loominus toob" rises again! (Not you mate, the plane).
