Default 90mm "Sub-Sonex" EDF minijet

Here is a spec sheet of my new Sub-Sonex EDF which is a model of the full scale, homebuilt jet offered by Sonex Aircraft. It all-wood, uses conventional material and components, and accepts a variety of off-the-shelf retract systems. It is NOT an ARF but is easy to build; someone with some building experience should have no problem creating their own. I will be test flying it in a week or so and, if it performs as I think it should, I will finalize the construction drawings and, hopefully, make them available.
Thanks for taking the time to read the post.

That's pretty cool!

Can I get a set of plans?

Do you mind if I copy your color scheme? Its unique and really pops

Didn't see plans on the website but I'll try the other thread too.
