Default Own design scratch built X-Fighter Racer

Hi

This is my own design X-Fighter Racer for low cost brushless 2408-21 motors, TT 8x 4 slowfly prop and 3S lipo packs. The model weighs approx 17ozs and has a 32inch wingspan. The thrust equals approx 19ozs which gives a weight/thrust ratio better than 1:1 so performance should be excilerating!

The test flight will hopefully be in the next few weeks. I hope to publish a plan in the near future!

That looks great! What goes in the nose? Looks like a spot for a second motor.

The nose will eventually be balsa- blocked in. But a second low pitched prop motor could be added!

And I used a 40% (12inch span) balsa chukie glider to accertain the c of g position.
