Grumania 1/10 Eurofighter

After the demise last summer of my Red Leader Typhoon. Pilot error ending in a very toll tree . We have to cut the tree ....I was frustrated and I order one from Ilja Grum @ Grumania in Germany
The model is made for a small turbine , but some modellers already electrify this jet with success .
The bad news is the spar located on the front of the fan . The jet did not come with inlet . My only solution was a Schubeler HST 77 fan with the mouth . +
Ilja who is the best to get advices , answers all my questions with lots of patience and came with a great solution to fix the spar problem : A special set of formers made by this company:
I will cut the spar and make the wing removable
The workmanship of those former are incredible...110 Euros
I will build the plane and share my modest experience until the spring for the test flight
Here what I'm using:
Power : Schubeler DS 77 DIA HST 6240-650 for 12-14 cells
ESC: CC Ice 160 for 12 and I have a COM PRO for 14 cells later
Cells : not sure yet or 12 GEN Ace 5500 mah or 12 8000 mah Nano Tech
Retract Lado 133 serie+ Edoor : main and nose
Delta: JR 3421 . Rudder : Hitec 5125. Canards and steering JR 821
Schubeler provide you with fan jig this way it's easy for the placement and construction( Thank Roger)
I buy the fan from Mike Warren @ fast service
Because fuselage is long Ilja cut the nose and the tip of the rudder for shipping . The nose was my first job , I cut all the opening in the fuse and give a good sending with 80 grit to remove all the PVA
Then you start with all the former . Not glue #2 yet because under this one I will instal a tray for the cells , after set up the fan. I think I will have some fun for balancing

The fuselage is well marked and you can not make any mistake.....
