70mm F-14 in development?

2 weeks ago, on the youtube channel showing many new models and prototypes (like the FN-RC F-104) a 70mm F-14 video was posted

萬大 大白 雙70 F-14 首航 (2 min 39 sec)


could be a FN-RC F-14, to be produced by Freewing or someone else, but that's only a guess.

attached some snapshots taken from the video

in any case, it might be worthwhile to check on this youtube channel from time to time

I had in fact assumed it was a twin 70mm, since the ducts and exhausts are so far apart on F-14, but it sounds like a single fan...

that's good if you hear twin motors - for me the characteristical "beats" were missing, I could not detect them on partial throttle where you usually hear them (noise volume oscillating due to interference from two sources with very similar frequency)

EDIT: I can hear some beats now, too, especially at 12 seconds into the video.

so, fine, a new twin 70mm F-14 i n the making then?

A twin 90 would be so much better.
