FZ5: design phase

ZDelta ready.
So time to start a new design.

Alternative to the FZX design, this one has the duct inlet on top.
This makes it possible to install a retract in the belly.

Early design attempt .., wings later, once COG of fuselage is estimated

It may just be me, but I think your wing looks like a flying boat. (especially in picture 7)
Also looks awesome!

Cant wait to see this fly,

Do you have a lake near you?
This could be the worlds first EDF flying boat wing!

They have a generous Student price. Any one class at your local community college will qualify you as a Student. Maybe a yoga class is in your future.

How did you learn to model in Rhino so fast? Is it similar to sketch up?

Searched YouTube for tutorials, they helped a lot.
Sketchup is pretty different, but i believe that the logic of 3D design is generic ?

Nevertheless, i Only use a fraction of its possibilities, no doubt.
