I've got a total wing area of 0.1418 m^2. Assuming a wing loading of 40 kg/m^2, that would make a plane that is 5.6 kg. At 5.6 kg that's a thrust to weight ratio of ~5:1. I think 5.6 kgs is on the heavy end of the mass I'm expecting and hoping for. I'd like a much lower thrust to weight ratio. I still need get to an estimate on the weight of my design to date... Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and switch to a 70 mm fan.
