I think I would like to throw a light weight JustGoFly motor on the back of the FS Spanker 28"..... With a good battery up front and lite motor in back that would be a hoot to fly, built light.

It would be the perfect size to throw in the car when you don't want to load all the planes for a trip to the field...

CK that is a very cool looking plane.... Can't wait to try one out.

funny you mention giant wings, i have been slowly putting one together in my head. but this will be a really light delta. much like the superfly
about 7' ws and around 5-7 lbs. with a 2,000 watt setup it should be awesome
we shall see

I did it as a micro sloper w micro layer of goop for hinges.
The crazy thing flys all the way across the park w a great glide and stability.
If I do an electrick it will ave around 1.5 inches longer on the nose to counter the motor weight.
AUW is 7 oz w 3 carbon strips RTF.

I was allready lookin at the fan nacell from hobby lobby.I already have the fan unit w the jet scream and the adaptor.
The nose just needs to be longer and wider to hit the cg ,and hold the bats.

It started way back with the romulan bird of prey.

Then the x bow then the bop of justin from edge rc . It flew ok but def had issues of durability Imho.

I will take it farther ,after What I have learned flying a bop and what I learned w the sky vak r n d.I will try a few more ideas, W the planform to make it way better. And way more cool to boot.

A perfect light JGF clone for this might be this motor from Don:

Would 29 grams be lite enough and can your design handle the weight of a 1000-1300 3s 15c-20c bat? For the FS? 95mph would be pretty quick on this size wing. Dave

I can widen the fuse abit so we can slide the motor a litte foward by sliding the wings back so the te of the wing hangs 2 ' past the fuse, plus make the fuse wide enough so a 4.7 4.7 prop can fit in the gap w no issues.
The lines on the fuse is where I cut some strip carbon and slit the wing w a razor and CA'ed the carbon in.
That carbon works great,and ads tons of strength too.
Do ya understand the words comin outa my mouth? We Candoit!

If you do that, then you will be able to use a wider array of motors and props, giving everyone the option to build light and slower to a little heavier and faster! In the immortal words of NIKE: JUST DO IT! lol Dave
