80-90mm Mako sportjet design


this is something I've been working on for a few days, on and off. It's getting a Eflite 80mm fan on 7s and I hope to have it rtf at Zeff in a few weeks. Not sure what wings will be used yet but I did the drawing awhile back with retracts as the intention. More to come.

Looks good so far.. Keep the project going it should turn out good and I'm sure you will put plenty of power in it . Thinking about what I want to build next as I would like to put retracts in it... W

Cool!
Be warned that looking at the placement of the fan, wing location, wing plan form and planned battery size (under the canopy). You might have a hard time balancing the model, looks like it could be nose heavy.

Kevin, thanks for that, my designs tend to be more fantasized than realistic so I will make changes if need be. I'm going to work on it again here in a few minutes. More pics to come, it will make more sense very soon. Thanks for the interest

Hmm, interesting. Looking at the lower fuselage I was like where you gonna put the wheels? Maybe if you did a box fuselage for the inlets and it stays kinda wide until past the wheels then quickly tapers back toward the exhaust?

Heck this design might have been rolling around in your head for a few years and one day you figured it out without expecting to.

Cool.

Thinking more on it, I may scrap the original and start a far more refined, curvy fuselage more akin to my original drawing but for 90mm
