In the "Printed Parts" thread I suggested that my Depron Airbus A350 was nearly complete but had not yet flown. It has now!Complete2.JPG 
Technically not an EDF as it has 3x3.5 four blade props in the nacelles driven by racing drone motors.
76Nacelle3.JPG 
Basically all the loads are carried by a 2 mm Depron skin with the nacelle inners, fuselage formers and wing ribs 3D printed. Narrow 2 mm balsa spar flanges are used only as far out as the nacelles.
Five 3.7 g micro servos work the control surfaces driven from a Lemon 6 ch stab rx. Power is provided by a 1000 mAh 4s 30c Lipo.
1475 mm span and 1652 mm long it weighs 595 g ready to go.
This is the actual maiden flight.

I was not at all sure it would fly and amazed it did so well.
The motors together draw a total of 10A at full power so giving 150W.
This means it is managing on just 115W/lb and it cruises on quite a bit less than that.

Absolutely beautiful! Wow.

Wow! That was an impressive flight and build... planning on releasing the plans?

Much better with the right video.
Very impressive, looks like the real thing, in total awe. Any damage on the landing?

K, I've watched this vid a few times and I'm so impressed. Between this and your Concord, you have duelling masterpieces!
I love your builds. Gorgeous.

Sorry about the wrong video.
Obviously landing an twin jet airliner on its nacelles is not ideal. On smooth short grass it actually slides quite well although over time I expect the nacelle pylons could fail or worse get over stressed and become a bit flexible.
Although with its scale size ailerons it tends to fly like....er....an airliner I was happy enough to try to fly it specifically 'low for the camera' along with the benefit of some sunshine!
A short video edited to include just the bits where there is something to see.

I have always wanted to build an airliner. I would be very interested if you have the plans available...

Very nicely done both the flight and the outstanding looking airplane. Your and artist at both.
Take offs are optional, landings are not.

Absolutely stunning - wish I had the patience to get that level of detail done
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

...ouch.

Impressive work
Fly like your mad at it.

Sorry but there are simply no plans in the conventional sense.
As with all my scale Depron planes they are built from a 3 view blown up to the required size to give the physical dimensions (in this case to give a 3" nacelle inner diameter to match the props!) but all the construction detail is 'made up' as I go along!
About the only truly repeatable components are the 3D printed parts!
