Mini fan F-15C with bifurcated exhaust

I wanted an F-15C and I wanted to see how using a bifurcated exhaust would affect power levels. This was my first design and worked out pretty good other than needing to add weight in the tail to make the CG. That was the price of keeping the plane as scale and as small as possible.

Link to build thread.

Update: decided to rebuild and repower. CG situation was dealt with by moving the battery packs to either side of the fan behind the intake ducting. Motor was changed to HET 2W20.

Bifurcated exhaust is where you split the exhaust flow from a single fan into two streams to achieve a scale looking exhaust on a twin engined jet like the F-15. Done correctly you loose a little power, done wrong and you loose even more power.
