Thanks guys. So far, we are in track to have the center section plug completed by the end of november. I have all of the glass needed for the mold, i just need to order some more epoxy. I believe we should have the molds completed by the end of december, and the first full airframe ready for final installation of all the systems by mid feb to march! We will then fly the pants off this thing to see what kind of mods or changes need to be made while the second one is getting finished.
We did some measuring, and we are planning on pushing the fans forward to where they are mounted 2 inches aft of the leading edge of the wing. That will make our exhaust ducts 24.5" long.
I also have an idea on doing some tests with the center section strapped to the trunk of a car
