Interesting
Not a million miles from my EDF XB70.

Description:
It should fly nicely and with coupled elevon/canards it should also be surprisingly manoeuvrable.

That looks very sleek, what's the weight? It will take a lot of C/F and ply to reinforce that narrow part of my fuse, the weakest part of the frame with the heavy 8S power set up and the rear mounted EDF unit. With the turbine the fuel tank will be just a fraction in front of the balance point. Cheers.

No where near, there is nothing that comes ever any close to what I build, simply because I build it my way. You can judge it when you see the finish project, Happy building and flying.

I can't figure out where the candles fit in.

Sorry, I was never an altar boy, 'candles?', not sure what you mean?

Project is well on its way but here comes another scratch build "JOFRODIS" project in action after 5 and the half years of flying now with over 400 flights. I'm hoping to reach "500" in my log book before the end of the year, enjoy the latest video and the landing smooth as a silk.
