Bigger Habu would be great for a P-20

No way on the F-86 and a P-20. Some things just are not smart. No place to put fuel in it if you stuff the P-20 in it. It isn't that big. For reference it is the same size as the E-flite BAE Hawk.

How about stuffing the P-20 into Sapac USA's L-39 Albatros? I have one with air retracts, trailing link scale struts and brakes. I have the rudder cut in the glass fuse and all the servos.........................JUst need th P-20...LOL

Guys, this was the one worry about the P20, foamie conversions and small EDF. These models are not large enough, look at the EDF weight and realise a turbine with fuel and steel tail pipe, plus....near 5lb thrust. Don't even think about it. I looked at the Sepac L-39 and it has small wings! It might work with a lambert, but not with a P20. We are looking at larger EDF moulded models like the Mirage Andy used, the Schubeler Hawk will be perfect! AW Cougar, that sort of model.
