of course you would, cause that's what you do. LOL.

bottom line is, it works and is used ALL the time. obviously, you've never run a multi, or you would know this.

ok, so you REALLY don't understand what's going on. that's painfully obvious. maybe you should go read up on it, so that you do understand. your last sentence can't possibly happen. if you think it can, you need to seriously read up on how all this stuff works. just sayin.

Haven't been able to get back to the bench yet , but have had to re-think some design elements. Mixing the two different plane styles ,in certain areas, will not be feesable as the changes will add too much more weight. So I will be going with the basic F15 layout but will tilt out the Vert Stabs like the F18 and F22. This will also give the necessary room for the 3rd unit exhaust.

Sorry that I haven't been showing too much guys ,had family in after Christmas and have been getting house un-decorated, however there has been progress. Forward fuse is assembled ,nosecone and canopy are rough shaped and mount has been cut. Many concerns and questions that I had have been figured out now that I have begun construction.

Got more shaping done on nose section of fuse and secured fans to their mount as well. Need more shrink tubing to finish motor leads , but I did get motor side done. What a lovely tangled web of wires!LOL....All too soon will be zip tied and insulated,routed and tidy. Anyone got some input on their best way to insulate? I was gonna go good old tin foil wrap. Alot of wires in complete harness.Peeled back the shrink on ESCs...every little bit helps disperse that heat. Tonight and tomorrow will be center fuse ,mount motors in fuse and other goodness.

don't use tinfoil. the heat won't be as bad as you think it will be. LOL.

the best way to take care of wires in an electrical system, is to twist each separate system of wires together, then tape them together with electrical tape. this will cut down on any interference that may be caused by the magnetic field formed by electricity passing through the wires. otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

If it was me, i would remove all those bullet on the motor side.

you have tripled your chances for a cold soldier joint. not to mention the weight saving in brass and soldier alone would be a lot.

great build so far. great to see guys thinking outside the box.

I hope you don't run into a problem with the fans starving each other for air. This happened to them on the big 144 inch T38 they had to put a splitter between the fans.

nice call!
Might want to do some power test with and without splitters, unless the design calls for separate intake for each fan.

Yep I couldn't tell if he is going to duct each separately, then he will be OK. It looks like there is an intake on top the turtle deck and maybe below the wing on each side. So I thought I would give him a heads up
