well that would put us both done around the same time. you really think you can dump 8 lbs? what did you paint that thing with, led? lol. how much of that liquid sheeting reson did you use?

yeah, the shot against the house really puts the size out there. im too used to seeing it one section at a time at my house, i really havnt had it all together in a long time.

Present fuselage convert to turbine, so in the end there would be a 32 pound 12,000 watt EDF version, and a 41 pound turbine version. If I want to fly the turbine version take the same wings and canopy but take the turbine fuselage, want to fly EDF, grab the EDF fuselage.

Looking at my build logs I could theroeticly carve out a new fuselage in about 5 weeks, build proper ducting another 4 weeks, get it all set up and dialed in another 3 weeks, Hmmm ...could have the EDF version done in about 2 1/2 months.
