I can not wait to fly it and see how it looks in the air
It looks great! I have many questions.
What paint?
Did you draw with brush by your hand?
How do you make full shape nose intead of profile?

Please someone help me to find whether this model will fly with 64mm Brushless EDF kit from HK?

What is the expected Flying weight of this model? HK Motor says a model of 500-600g weight.

Thank you.

Thank you.

It will fly it fine and has been done (search thread for EDF) but will not fit inside the fuselage requiring it to hang out the top. Off course you could modify the fuselage to accommodate the 64mm entirely inside That along with the semi scale nose would be awesome IMHO!

I'm looking at building one at about 60% of the one on the first post -- about 18-19" wingspan.

With a 2S lipo (cuz I GOT a bunch of 2S), what MOTOR & PROP would you guys recommend

Thanks!
