Question
felling my creation doesnt have enough power

After finish building my Enterprise-A (acording to all my data it should fly with a 4 to 1 thrust ratio ) but with my design may or may not float in the air, question has any one ever put a kit wing above an air craft to test out how the motors will have the will efect it in the air

Personal note
( I think I may have to much drag and not enough lift most likly need nore power to make it work with out the extra kite delta wing)

Should I just try it with out the extra wing or should I put on the kite wing to get it air born


PS I want so much this to be airborn but have limited amount of funds

Do you mean by 4 to 1 thrust ratio that you have 4 times more thrust than the weight of the plane? If so, drag should not be a problem at all. 4 to 1 is highly unusual; usually a 1 to 1 ratio is more than enough.
