So there is this SIG Kobra kit box sitting around (kit # RC53) and I was now wondering if I could put a ducted fan in it instead of prop on the nose.
The initial idea is to make openings on each side of the fuse somewhere under the cockpit to feed air to a fan inside the fuselage with a tube leading to an open tail.
I have no idea if this is feasible, but the reason the kit was never built is because of the idea of having a prop on the nose (or tail) of a jet is not appealing.
If you are not familiar with the kit it is a F-16 type of plane.
390 sq inch wing area
weight 3.25 to 3.50 lbs
usual engine recommended is .19 to .35
Any idea suggested would be greatly appreciated.
