F-16 XL Cranked Arrow

An extra Freewing F-16 fuselage has made it's way into my Frankenstein's workshop so in between a 1m P-38 and 1.5m quad 64mm X-Wing build I'll be converting her to an XL model.
Anyone else do this? Seems like a fairly straightforward build (I even have a crashed fuse to cut a section out of to extend the flying one ~4") especially since I plan on making her a hand launcher/belly lander.

Still considering various 70mm EDFs and motors, but would like to be able to use some of the 4S 2700mAh batteries I already have.
tally ho!

If you do a general forum search for F-16XL, Lee Liddle has modified a few of these. Plus there is an existing thread in the scratch build EDF forum.

I've had an old Kyosho fuselage for yrs, thinking of doing the same thing. The airfoil can be complicated because of the cranked wing.
