Less flow loss, use smaller engines.... perfect for EDF... Looks like a single KT170E was used in the prototype.... flow it nice.

If I didn't already have this Fej 1/6 F-18 clunker....

You guys enjoy the 120s seem to push it very nicely. I hope they release a light kit for it with factory install like on the hawk and f16

we had designed the 3 versions for the engine mounts , one for single turbine P-180 to P-200 or K-180 to K210 , and two versions for twin turbines P-100 (K120) in the tail or twin P-140 (K140) in the center place ,

interesting, so I would imagine with wing stores you will probably have the 140s like normal with pipes?

Perfect Anton! I was going to say why not the 2 new K160s since they are smaller then the old K140. The K160 seems to be good on twins since its small and light yet has the power to bring a big plane back on single engine.

Great work on the F18. See you at FLjets in a few months
