Two motors (inner and outer ones as pairs) are connected to one 12s-7.000 mAh pack 35c.

I asked the builder about building time, but he did not count it. It took him about a year. Since he built it entirely from scratch this time, he shared work with a friend, who built two identical models at the same time. The second one in a different livery still waits for its maiden, due to private reasons. We may see them flying in tandem later this summer.

BTW, if someone is really seriously thinking about such a model, I may ask if short kits (moulded nose part, tail and nacelles may be available ). Heiko however is not interested series production. :-) He is already busy with his next build...

Now if I could get plans this is something I would take the time to build. This is a worthwhile journey to assemble a bunch of toothpicks.
