Saw this and thought it was very cool. I'm sure others have seen it before, but in case you haven't.....

the batwing has been popular in prop driven form on rcgroups..interesting to see it as an EDF...

Not his specifically. From what I read and looked at, he was trying to get a company together to sell his planes...I don't know if it ever took off. From the youtube comments it didn't look like he answered any questions. rcpowers designed one, there are some old links around somewhere, and check rcgroups

Oh yes... One way or another, I will have something similar.... May try prop driven before edf....but I will have something similar to the red dragon....

The EDF bug has hit you.
Like your design, the only thing you might want to look at is adding cheater holes on the side plates. If you do a loop, the triangular flat plate in front is going to block flow to your inlet tube. Will end up loosing power, so put some cheater holes in the side plates to counteract that.

Where do you think the CG is going to be?

10-4. I will do that. I have the battery about 3inches inside the front lip and it feels pretty good. I was hoping to test it today but ran out if time.

I am guessing the CG is right in front of the black tape of the middle cross strip.

You should wait until you have a 5-10mph steady wind and grab it where the middle cross stripe and chuck it. Keep adjusting the battery until it starts(it will either go nose down quickly or nose up and roll) to glide. Then for final chuck, add 1 or 2 clicks of nose up. Should really glide in the wind. That is the way I found the CG for my Shuttle(took 14 throws) and your FSWCanard.

Thanks. I would like to say I will do that, but in reality, I will find what feels like nose heavy, then move it forward to be safe then fly it. I really need to stop being lazy and build a mock up and test glide it first. Maybe a good new year resolution. I'm sure my success rate for scratch builds would be higher

Finally got around to trying this....we gave it a good try. Not enough thrust I believe...oh well, they can't all be winners...had fun trying though, and it looked really good on my bench for awhile....
