One question I have ....

At what size would a Concorde have to be so we could actually build a reasonably powered model scale with EDF's ...

Small EDF's are terribly inefficient and also large for their performance, making nacelles over-size etc.

Quorneng is trying with 4 x 40mm's ..... I built with 2 x 50mm's and ended up compromising more than originally intended.

It's one of those models that needs turbine's to stay scale.
