The FS, yes. I have been looking at Strangebirds SB28, but since it is balsa, it doesnt bounce! lol. I have an extra LSPJ that wil work on thisans the other motor I linked to. Different look from the BOP and MiniBOP. With the angled fins should be more stable than vert ones.

ya the fs looks a bit like a scaled down skyvak with a simpler fuse due to no fan...

you have the idea down on this one you have proven the plan form..

if you build it they will fly it..

Hey Joe... you mean your 150MPH TL is too much for in front of the house? I have seen the TL twice, but never seen it fly. Sorry, had to take a moment to harass you

Joe's excitement in flying wings has almost been enough to get me to buy one.

And I have an edf that would be perfect for this to try out on. My Wattage Vector bit the dust, but the EDF is alive and well! lol. It uses a 2025 3200kv motor which is lighter than other 400/480 motors. Since It pulls around 20-25 amps, would be perfect for this setup.
