Subscribed!!! Will see how soon I can get to build. Trying to decide between 50% and 66% scale. Either way, she'll be souped up with an 1806N 2500kv motor.

I printed out 50% on four A4 sheets just for fun. It looks like an indoor micro.

I did a ToxicToast F14, with Maybz tail feathers at 14.5 WS from 6mm depron. It's nice with an 1811 2000Kv motor. I see this 14" to 18" WS/6mm depron and an 1806N 2500Kv motor. It'll never fly indoors.

Nick I Have a set of print outs at 100% and 50%. The 50% templates have been cutout and dry fit tested. So far all looks ok. Tabs line up, etc Will use 3mm depron for the 50% build. Thinking of using the guts of the PZ SU-26m, which will be interesting, should keep it lite, servo line up may not work though, will see

Perhaps try 60%. You should be able to fit a 5" prop.

I hope someone does a cnc kit for this when it gets the bugs worked out. I can cut foam in a straight line to save my life.

I have a electronics setup with out a home.

Also have some 5in stuff as well.

Thanks NAC for the BETA plans, i was working on this as well but you made my life much easier.

Hope you don't mind but i shrunk your plans down to a 65% version which came out to 18.25 wingspan.

I'll post pics when i get it done, trying to decide if i should do it in EPP or 6mm depron.

Thats fine.
Be aware that the battery compartment cover needs to be lengthened by around 5mm along with a few other changes.
BETA plans updated to V1.03.

The plans are almost good to go. I have a couple of minor changes to do. And then just need to wait for a maiden to check cg.

Subscribed as well. I would go to 66% with the 1806N motor.
