EMB-120 Build


Hello group, I'm starting this build thread since there is none out there. The model is an Embraer 120 Brasilia. Got this laser cut short kit from eBay, seller is Ama Models.

I'm fairly new to electrics, so I welcome all suggestions and recommendations pertaining motors, ecs, batteries, and so on.

SPECS

98.5 in. wing span
99 in fuselage length
30 - 35 lbs. weight range
.60 - 1.20 nitro engine


I doubt/hope it will be less than 30-35lbs.
Will be using 2 .80 size brushless motors and JP hobby cnc retracts with brakes.

Nice subject, and at a nice size.
Electrics are the way to go for multi engines.
I’ll be following your build

Not much going on today, I just ordered some carbon fiber hollow tubes that slide thru some of the fuselage bulkheads (expensive!!!)

These is the landing gear set I'm planning on using.

Still waiting on some missing laser cut parts from the seller.

Howdy. Any updates? What's the sheeting material/process? Was considering using this as a base for an E145 model. Also asked the seller if he'd be willing/able to commission one based on this but I was sadly told that his "supplier" said no.

Also I see the plans are in spanish. I'm trying to track down which company actually designs and cuts these kits. If you have that info that would be great.

The company who sells the plans is casadabalsa.com, I got the kit from an eBay seller but it came with missing parts, so it was somewhat of an inconvenience trying to get the correct pieces. An E145 wouldn't be a problem but a new wing, tail feathers and a stretched fuselage will have to be made.
I will be using 1/8" balsa sheeting all over the structure and .75oz fiber cloth.
The plans show inacurate dimensions for the windshields and engine nacelles, so I will be correcting those, everything else seems fine scale wise.
