Cool
scratch build learjet 55

After building a lot of scale parkjets I decided to go bigger this time and I think this Learjet 55 is the perfect choice
is going to be 58'' long and 40'' wing span

Great start!

What power plant are you planning?


Next one make a Learjet 60, as the engine's are larger and fuse is slight longer too.

Don't forget to look into model rocket body tubes as potential airframe components for the center section. Light and strong, not to mention round.

specifications

I do not decide yet which of these two EDF use

and as always I'm using DOW to build this jet

battery: 3s-20c-2200mAh or 4s-50c-2600mAh

I'm hoping for a weight of no more than 2lp when finished

servos: will be micro with metal gears

Very nice build!, LJs are one of my favorite personal jets....I love Lear 35/36A n B but 55 is good to. I have 3 GPlanes LJs, 2 built n one NIB kit...

Cool. LJ's are one of my favorite planes too even though I have ever gotten around to building one because I am a 3D pilot. The HL LJ might be my first scale plane. Great work! Rocket parts look like a possible component choice I agree.
