Here is my cargo launch version:



And the firefighter version:

I used to have one from EAM that was a bit bigger that that one. I flew it so much that I just flat wore it out!

Nice work there!

Here was my EAM model and my current project that is still in the planning stage. I rescued this one out of the NASA wind tunnel that was being tore down here a Langley.

I know what I want to do, now I just need the funds to do it!

Wow !
Now, that's the model, looking forward to see she flying. What's the total weight and what motor you are planning to use?

I'm not sure what the weight will be, probably in the 20-25 pound range. The plane itself is all fiberglass, there are no control surfaces cut in escept fo rht e rudder. There is a ton of work to do to it still.

I'm looking at 4 power 46 or 60 size with each running on a 4-6s Lipo
