EJF Rafale

Well I have a Rafale but its the EJF version its an older kit that I got second hand. The fuselage is nicely done so it must have been made when Robert had his good glass person working for him. It came with the presheeted wings and I am installing a single Midi fan I got the carbon fiber ducting and lasercut formers. I do need to make my own retracts plates and mounts for the spring airs. It should fly well I am not sure which motor to run in it. Any suggestions for motors, there is plenty of room for cells. I am also using full flying canards mixed into the elevons as the guys flying the big Raf use them. I will build this one and install the retracts and even gear doors. The cool thing about the fuse is that no hatches have been cut so I can make my own cuts and hatches. But I am with Haldor my next all molded ship will be a Rafale.
