Default "2B2" 4 engine EDF jet.

My latest project in its embryonic state.

Working out the size of the air-frame to suit the power units power-scale-wise.

Further bullet connector upgrade and check run as combined twin rear power unit. few more test runs before I decide if I go for separate battery on each power unit, twin pairs as on pic or running all four of the large capacity single pack.

Upgrade of all bullets for easy flow.

Combined twin check run.

More than pleased after the maiden, flies just as good as it looks. I like it.


Definitely worth 200 hours of loving labor.
