Snowgoose 20 for 6400

Snowgoose 20 is based on the super jet. proportions are by eye, and is larger (20"ws).
it takes the 6400 brick with v-tail mix and the canard is fixed. is powered by a brushless 1015 with a kenway gear box, a gws 6/3 prop, and 1 240mah hyperion cell.
71 gr auw. 5mm foam board for keel, canard, and fins; 1mm for airfoiled forward part of wing (upper and lower); 2mm for rear part of wing and elevons, 3mm for horizontal and upper part of fuselage. it uses a step to increase its stability. 1mm carbon fiber rod reinforcement for canard, fuselage, also for pushrods; uhu por glue.
it could be used for similar receivers and/or bricks.
nice, stable flight under power or glide. there is a video here:
there is a 2nd version that am testing now, with elevator on the canard, and ailerons on the wing-and relocated components for balance without ballast: 63 gr auw. pic at lower right shows the fillets that added later and improve stability.
