Someone posted on the older thread and as I read some of the old posts on there I thought Chris was starting over again. Now realizing this is the newest thread I see he is not.

I have started working on my F-22 twin 90mm's. Once I get into it more I will post my own build thread. My specs will be:

WS 55"
Length 76"
Each edf will use it's own (4000-4500) mah 6s pack. Whatever I can fit into her.
Retracts, flaps, leading edge slats, rudders. I am contemplating not to use the leading edge slats. We will see how it goes.

Contemplating if I want to make fiberglass ducts or use a combination of hotwiring portions of the inner fuse with foam for ducts. Definately using some wood bulkheads for strength. Mixing in some foam bulkheads, I then will skin it and fiberglass the bird. Here is what I have done so far.

That is the size I have been looking for.
What plans are you using?

My own. Used three view schematics and plotted out bulkheads every 2" inches down the fuselage. This way I could use hotwire with 2" thick foam to create fuselage parts.

I was thinking of doing something similar.

Subscribing. I've followed your foam builds of the F-22. Very nice work. This should be another good one.
