I have some ideas of my own and am trying to get some answers from Schubeler of the upcoming DS-215-HST.
I'm open to any and all ideas no matter how radical.
The goals are to keep it light and have reasonable flying speeds like the turbines do.
If you use the Schuebeler DS-94-DIA HST with DSM6745-700 which produces 29.1 lbs of thrust at 14S the plane will have a .83:1 power to weight ratio which is not bad but given the weight of the plane it can be tricky to fly once you start to loose power in the batteries. The DS-215 will be a different type of beast here but like Ron 101 said the inlet will be the key factor here. If you can get the measurement of the inlet from Tomahawk or a owner of the jet you can submit the info to Daniel or Christian @ Schubeler and they can guide you in the right direction. Good luck in the project!
