80mm Mako sportjet design

this is something I've been working on for a few days, on and off. It's getting a Eflite 80mm fan on 7s and I hope to have it rtf at Zeff in a few weeks. Not sure what wings will be used yet but I did the drawing awhile back with retracts as the intention. More to come.

Looks good so far.. Keep the project going it should turn out good and I'm sure you will put plenty of power in it :D. Thinking about what I want to build next as I would like to put retracts in it... W

Thanks Walt, I plan to finish this one soon, and ya something around 2000 watts :D

Be warned that looking at the placement of the fan, wing location, wing plan form and planned battery size (under the canopy). You might have a hard time balancing the model, looks like it could be nose heavy.

Kevin, thanks for that, my designs tend to be more fantasized than realistic so I will make changes if need be. I'm going to work on it again here in a few minutes. More pics to come, it will make more sense very soon. Thanks for the interest:)

more progress, retracts mapped out and modified struts for angle,tail section complete and ducts,wings,and tail feathers started. Also re profiled the canopy, I like it much better now
