Thanks, the Victor's here: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...s-flight-video
Flies on far less than full power, to the point where it quite possibly would fly with 4 UMX fans. The model is all scratch built from a 3-view.

Umx f15. Me262 or ar234. f14 would be cool but not likely. Or f111. How about an A6?

The EE Canberra (US much-modifed remake the B-57) would be a good, twin fan ship, although the fans are internal. For bombers with external engines, the Ar-234, B-66, A3, or IL28. Good part about the Ar-234 would be some were belly-landers; bad part is their being Nazi-German acft.

Built and flew an AR234 with 30mm GP fans. Good performer: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...ht-Video-Added
The Canberra is too large for scale nacelles and the power level of the UMX fans, like a number of twin subjects.

Unless you upscale the nacelles or create cheaters (exhaust diameter is less than intake). But then you lose the looks..
Btw I love your Meteor, so it can be done!

I think this is one reason they went with a UMX A-10, the nacelles are oversized to begin with.

I would be pleased with either a C-130 or better yet, and Airbus A-400m. It would be simple, the configuration has already been done with the B-17 and they both fill a void in the aircraft currently available. It’s easier to build light and more scale too.

That would be interesting, but I was thinking more in terms of multi EDF bombers. But a Tupelov Bear would be way cool, without the issues of a multi EDF.

They would look like a real butch job as a multi engine EDF however. Plenty of multi engine turbine subjects to choose from.
