    RE: Turbine powered Batwing

    Glad to see you're back at it with the Batwing, Rick! How does the intake ducting work on a design like this? I have no experience with turbines, only small EDFs (70mm). From my experience, proper intake ducting is just as important to the efficiency of the EDF as the exhaust ducting. Is this less important with a turbine?

    Also, we will see a detailed cockpit with appropriate pilot figure...right?

    RE: Turbine powered Batwing

    Your right about the intakesThe size of the model was determined by the intakes and exhaustat 80 inch span there was enough area of intake to supply the chosen turbine for that size machine-r and the exhaust was also adequate
