I've looked at your models in the past and was favorably impressed. Now, with this new offering, again so.

Being a twin, I'll keep my I on this one

A few more photos.

After doing the 1400mm Wright Brother project, I do suspect there is something that is not often reported.

Even with the water tower forward, to achieve C of G, -perhaps a problem. The engine is quite aft.

Obviously it was over-come. Interesting.

To clarify a few comments.

The C of G is model has to be about 20% aft of leading edge because of the short canard (short canard issue -well documented)

However, a brief inspection of the large masses in the Wright Flier (engine, props, man) suggests their C of G is well aft of this 20% position.

So the question is how did they balance it?

Obviously in the correct manner, but it has me beat.

I love that line up! The American jet looks great. Any upgrades to the power since my Frontier jet?

The power train is the same has the Frontier. However what has changed is the 301-c AUW is considerably lower providing a thrust to weight ratio of around 75%.

It is a 3s setup with Mega motor and Alpha fan -a good solution. Video of engine test.

If you view the video, wtach the short take-off for the Ryan. What I meant by thrust to weight ratio.

Second video is the new retracts for the 301-d
