Looks very nice indeed.
What's it's big scale equivalent?
What kind of set up do you aim for. Brushless EDF's or more economical brushed EDF's. I do assume LiPo's are the way to go. I'd love to hear more about the set up.

Kind regards,
Dave

Don't you think you should improve quality of foam a bit for $150 you ask for, even for two kits?
Take a look again at engine pods in above pictures. Even LifeLike gliders offer better foam for few $$.

No hard feelings, just my opinion.

Thank you very much for your suggestion.
I think there is not space to improve the quality because I need to pay almost US$80 to ship two plane from Hong Kong by air, it mean each plane just cost US$35.
I am planning to sell this Airliner over US$120 to US$140 plus shipping cost after mass production.

I don't have hard feelings at all.

Did I read right? Two of those planes for 120-140 USD?
Still, I think people here want to know what's equipment could fit.
At least, I wouldn't buy one plane if I got only this information.

You need:
1. Battery
2. 4 pcs of duct fan
3. 4 pcs of standard size servos
4. RX, TX and ESC

120-140 USD is for one plane not two.
See the wing photos as attached image files:

The wing do seem smooth to me
How is the wing supported? Do you just stick both wings in each side of the fuselage?
What kind of EDF's are you thinking of, what size EDF's can be fitted?

Yes, just slide in into the fuselage like Easy glider or Su-29.
Any 55mm EDF's can be fit to the engine, I suggest to use four pcs of GW/EDF55-300H.

That's pretty neat. I like those "simple" EDF's. What's your expected weight and what's the wingsurface? I personally don't mind the material's looks.
I think it might do you good to get some more info here about the jet!

A general question though, with four of those EDF's, can you use 1 esc for all four?

Ming,

Ni Hao, since you recomend using the EDF55-300H this means you have had success with them flying installed. Can you give us a description of how tht flight went?
