Default Backyard Evil

Been so busy latley making motors that it's hard to get away to fly.

Need stuff to fly out the back door, bug the cats.....

So I took two of my earlier designs mated them (in a evil way) and then shrunk the result to get a 18" wingspan, full house control balenced on the centerline kind of thing. Oughta be fun.

No sure if I will kit it or not, but it should be light. That's a 22.7mm GB motor hung up front. Figure a 450 3S and a 5" prop 15 or 17T

It's comming along, still working on the fuse details.

I find that working partially on the bench and also in CAD helps be visualize the design better.
