Love the F-4's

If I my choice would prefer single 70mm to keep weight and cost down. Size would be some were in-between Kevinís unbelievably scale F-4 and the one I fabricated at 47inchs and if it looks right I might even buy one for a change instead of scratching all the time.

Hopefully it WILL be a twin fan. Nothing worse then a decent plane killed by being absolutely non scale.
There isnt any maintainance with a twin setup. Just more money for esc and motor relative to single.

If its a single fan, a lot ppl wont buy it including me. Conversly, if its a twin, some ppl wont buy it due to the somewhat small additional money needed.

I'm not sure why I've always had a fear of twins.

No reason why with a bit of designing it could be made to be either two smaller, or one larger fan. Couple of foam inserts in the ducting and it would be possible. If it looks the part I'm in for one, two or one fan.
