That Viggen is 1:12 scale. Span is about 90cm, lenght 140cm. Wemo 90 fan on 6 cells. Almost 3 kg wright. Bare in mind, The landing gear is exceptionall on this model and The wing is extremely thin. Now need to do the profile 100% scale. Then it will be impossible to fit retracts.
Sincerely Marcus

Are you mean i need make the wing airfoil a little thicker to let the space for the retract gear ?

Correct. The landing gear on Viggen is very complex.








Scale 1:10 would be perfect. Around 1076mm wingspan (42") and 1640mm lenght (64,5")

Scale 1:9 Around 1190mm wingspan (47") and 1820mm lenght. (71") That is quite big

Dear Kin , excellent work !!!.
You have a great opportunity in the WW2 Electric airplane market .
All you have to do is make a phone call to LX Models , FMS models, Starmax models,
Change Sun and the rest !! Tell them you can make there retracts as they have failed in many respects to make good retracts for the WW2 planes .
They are inconsistent in quality and typically do not have a functioning gear leg.
Thanks
Lou
