Fantastic! Love your carbon work - looks great. What is choice of 70mm fan? With that nice ducting, something very high speed I hope!
Please keep posting, anxious to see finished product. Who made the fuselage? - or is that one of your own? Finally, what is WS?
Great post - thanks for the great pictures too!
Your model looks pretty good. Good luck with it. Keep the speed up while in flight.
I have fabricated a 1/10 scale F-104 off scale 3 views since it is one of my all time favorite and not too many at the airfields.
It is for a 90mm or a Wren 54 (overkill) sized turbine.
The trashed pic one was the test flight one. It flew on a 6s, Changesun 12/90mm with around 1200 watts i believe. Came in at around 6lbs and we launched it. It is designed to have functioning gear later.
It flew with no intake ducting, only a bell mouth. I have it's first test flight on youtube under Scalecraft F-104. Mostly for the CG location.
I have not put a wing profile on the fuse to allow me options on my wing. My wing is pretty thin a this point, but i think i can make it thinner and therefore faster.
I have a post in this form for more info on my model if interested. I have laid up 3 at this point. One for my buddy"s test model and the one with orange tape as my trainer with gear and real power with ducting.
