I have been busy getting things together, wings ordered, retracts started tires for wheels arrived and fuzz under design. I have been looking at the thrust line & incidences again and through a mate who worked on JP's I have decided to go with the 3 degrees of incidence on both wing & tail with the same thrust line. This will give a slight nose down attitude when flying which I am told is correct, it also gives more room around the turbine and does not interfere with the wing. Another mate is making a pair of conformal tanks to suit , thrust tube to be a max of 890 mm long. This may shorten when we finalize the turbine position after balancing. Pic of layout being set up on the profile showing wing incidence and proposed turbine position.
Hows your coming along Ken.
