Edit. Looks almost like an f86 with engines slapped on horizont stabs. You would need a very beefy tail section to support those 2 edfs.
Can anybody name this.Looks like a Luft46'er.Would be a nice project.

A lot of delta possibilities. That would be an easy platform to work with. Still am looking at the Fighter aspect . Very good direction on mixing some of the ideas into something Wicked.
Keep it coming . We will be into the power system and EDFs very soon.

That's one of the Arado555 series.A few of the designs had triple motors,one at least classed as a fighter.Luft46 is a good place to browse for out of the ordinary ideas.

Going to get started on some design ideas over the next couple days. Looks like this will be a build !! Probably going to be triple 55mm's. Stay tuned. When build starts I will start a thread.

Just came back from $Tree with 6 more sheets of foamboard. Have plenty to get this project done. Have servos as well. Gotta make the powerplant decisions. I may go smaller than 55mm just to conserve on weight. The battery is gonna have to be a beast to get 3 units going....as well as going through 3 ESCs. SO....anyone want to start tossing around some ideas?????

Great thinking Space ! That will cut down on Elec space. My design choice, unless needing mod, will have all 3 units having their own inlet and exhaust. The set up is 2 on bottom 1 on top with the single unit on top having the smaller exhaust diameter. EDIT: Airframe is going to be based on F22&F15 . The top unit will intake either directly,starting just behind canopy..or as bifurcated along fuse top. Will exit between Vert Stabs. There will be an airflow design incorporated that pulls air across all electronics in an enclosed space.

Nice one SMRTIC !! I actually considered the Sci-Fi concepts. Almost built a Bird of Prey looking plane. I have started the layout of the design and am almost ready to do a mock-up. Still having issues on whether to go 3 ESCs or 2...(i haven't read where 1 has run 2 units) Will not be going over 55mm for units. Still looking for ideas and input...so keep it up !!

still can't beat the saptain Scarlett Angel Interceptor though, even though the Viper is ultra cool. Cylon raider is awesome too. in fact, they've been done by an RCG member. the threads are easily found and I believe there are plans.
