Default A Future RC Airplane I Plan To Build

I was thinking of making a RC cargo airplane out of foam frame covered with balsa wood. It would be four electric duct fan powered. The wingspan would be between 40 to 70 inches. What do you think of that?

I think JohnVH said it correctly. Go for it, just let us know how it looks. You thinking C-130?

I've seen some very nice electric ducted fans. The sound they make is very nice, almost jet like.

Oh no. I plan to design on it on my own. Likely a cross between an Antonov-124, C-5 Galaxy, and B-52. If it was to scale, it would have a wingspan of at least 400! I won't likely design this airplane anytime soon though. I need to learn to fly solo though and this is a little to complex for me. Gettin' some crazy ideas these days with RC airplanes.
