Hi,thanks for that input Yechua,I have already got some advice re. balance in flight,another guy who flys i.c. ducted fans has a DCU F-14,he advises,as you do,to 'give a couple of clicks'of up trim in minimum sweep conditions.Obviosly,manoeverabilty in this condition will be affected,I guess the tuning radius will be affected,so am prepared!
Thanks all the same!
As for those who have asked for plans,I have added you to my list,and will contact you again nearer the time-I will have to build another F-14 as a test bed for the EDF version.
I have gleaned a lot of information from the German 'Jetmag' magazine,and will be incorporating information from this scource in my next model-no point in re-inventing the wheel!
Many thanks to you all for your interest,by the way,I haven't worked out a price for the EDF version yet,also I will post details of developments on this forum as soon as they happen-watch this space!
Please feel free to send me an e-mail if you wish to discuss things in more detail.
