That would be cool! Maybe just move the wing back instead of changing the nose & tail. Balance is definitely a big issue with the little "toonies".

I'm right now working on the tweaked design - pulling nacelles forward and overlapping the wing - tight so they meet on top of the fuse... Which looks awesome with the warthog grin

Biggest issue right now is power... Was planning a pair of umx habu or umx f86 28-35mm but the 50s would fill the hole nicer... But throws all weight to hell with huge batteries... Hunting for a way to use 50mms with a smaller motor at lower amp draw/thrust output to make it work...

Will do when I get a chance - just got up to camp in the oilsands (work not summer) - hoping to get a chance to play with the design - but 16+ hour days trying to get some work done and safety orientations thus far...

Well back from up north - 2 weeks in the oilsands... Found a pair of KMP 50mm 5 blade fans in the old stock bin at a LHS - gonna have to see what I can dig up for motors - and see if I can keep it 2s as planned... But build starts this weekend!

Me and sketchup agreed not to get along on this model, so I'm gonna wing it like we did 20years ago kfm2? I think so...
