I would like if it was updated to use smaller diameter EDF's. With todays brushless motors, it could easily fly very well and look much more scale.

Unfortunately, it does not seem like there is much room for design development in GWS budget lately. I would like to see GWS grow and be active again. I still like the brand.

nacelle mod is all it takes...

...to make it into an even more awsomoe, and scale model

just reduce the lower part of the nacelles so that the new 50mm 11-blade fans (XRP even come with a lip) fit, and there would be enough thrust and scale size.

would definitely work, the slightly larger and heavier Supreme Hobbies A320 does very well, 3s 2200 would be enough, just over 40A WOT (both motors, 4200kV)

if you're not familiar with the A320

that airbus even got retracts...

for belly landing, the alloy 50mm 10-blade Lander fan unit might be better (will take more abuse
in the landings on the nacelles I guess...)

cheers
