great!
and fast!

one question...how will be the inlet an outle fans ducts and fan suport?
i dont see reinforcments in that areas...just 2 spars crossing the outlet section...
i agree with fans location forward...to get the CG easily, and speed control after but inside the ducts.
Really nice! estimated weight? and lenght?
Merry Xmas!

Juan - you are right about the Fan position for the CG, Post # 8 shows the fan actually screwed to the poplar rails but this point the pod structures are just roughed in. More structure to follow. ESCs actually go in the fuse in a compartment with the batteries behind the cockpit area on 15" cable extensions. Span is 84" and length is about the same. Est weight is aprox 18 - 19 lbs. CG computed out at 11" behind the wing leading edge measured at the fuse. Wing loading aprox 49oz.

See post above for size. Fans are HET 9305 -700 (90mm) with HET 700-60 (2000 kv) motors using 6s batteries and Castle Ice 100s for ESCs. CG is set conservatively to give about a 10% static margain - slightly nose heavy for initial flights.

My mistake on the previous CG number - should be 8.66" from LE. Actual wing chord at LE is 23.5". Thanks for making me double ck my calcs.
