G650 build

Hi !
Here's my Gulftream G650 depron build :
SCALE 1/25

Lenght = 1.22 m ( around 48'')
Span = 1.13 ( around 44'')
weight unsure cause unfinished but under 700/800g expected all equiped.
2 x 55mm edf + 2 20amps esc and 3s 2200/2600 mah
4 x 9g types servos (2 ailerons + rudder + elevator).

And where I am...stoped right now hum let say unshure about key choices to finish it...
where to put battery tray and how to hold it safely but lightly?
how to attach wings to the fuse with drowned nuts and 4mm plastic bolts I have?
Strong skin to resist belly landigs on grass because no landing gear?...probably with craft paper and wood glu
light strong but accurate engines nacelles?

I read and read again all the building posts that could look like mine ( same technic or same airliner architecture :727's, erj's, dc9's etc...)
so anyone who want to suggest me anything is VERY MUCH welcome!!!!

EDF mounting
2 plywood piece with + V angle (as the real one)

55mm edf weight 70gr with motor + 20g by esc so that would be around 180g (around 6.5 OZ)
pretty heavy for such a small airplane ????

Great project

Had an opportunity to work on one recently....very graceful in its lines, so much more than the GIII's and GIV's...huge tail on those beasts..

Will be watching your progress. KUTGW

LOVE IT !!!!!

I think the weight won't be an issue.

Gulfstreams are the best.

Hi!
plans are home made, taking a 3 view diagram and scale it into autocad (scale 1/25) then trace the side and upper lines.
Then a few inovations especially for tail that do not appear on my DWG plan.
Anyway I can put it online if you want, no problem

watch out I'm not shure the pdf plans are at the right size.

In fact I imported a 3 view image in autocad as raster, then I scaled the image to 1/1 scale with the real one datas, then I copy this image to a 1/25 scale and only then I drew the lines over the image.

I exported the DWG to pdf
