It's ok I have balanced a few citation and hawker nose tires so I should be able to tackle this. I appreciate it V8. It will have to wait until I get off work on Friday though.

That is a great arctic camo job. Looks a lot like the one on the Su34.

Here's mine lots of mods. cs12 het 700-68 14kv on 8s 4000 pulls 105 amps at 3000 watts. Modified undercarrige , 6mm spar running through fuz into wings, 120 amp esc covered fuz with fiberglass tape to strengthen all joints. Mods to elevators carbon shaft and tubes. gives nearly 7 pounds of thrust auw is 7 pounds.

also cut doors in half permanently open to maintain shape of nose.

Scuna,

Yup that heavy mods if I've seen one on this plane. Love the trailing arm on the nose gear. Also the CF ros through the nozzles doesn't have any effect on thrust? Good job, what scheme u gonna paint it as?

Gotta fly it first , its heavy which means it will be fast. I used to have a yellow aircraft f-18 years ago it weighed 14 pounds and it was not much bigger it would do about 140 mph on 8 pounds of thrust with ramtec fan, this should be interesting. I have a 8 mm angle of attack on wing hoping to fly it off rather than snapping off.
