My plan is to add some "doublers" on the side of the profile fuselage to give it a beefier look (not sure yet if I will use 3mm or 6mm depron, I'm leaning to 3mm depron as I would like it to be a little thicker, but not sacrifice the aerodynamics too much. I want it to fly close to scale, so it will be fast, but not overly aerobatic.

With the right ingenuity, it could be made into some sort of score and fold for sure, as long as proper care was taken to ensuring that lots of air could get back to the prop. The way it is now, air flows down through the intakes and the prop also gets some air through the top of the prop slot, I enlarged it a bit front and back also to help out.

Cheers,

Scott

Poormansairforce your sketchup of the f4e looks very nice. Impressed, hope the build comes off, and goes to plan.
Scott, will be interesting to know your findings, I.e. cofg ease of positioning, pitch and so on in respect to the offset of the motor position.
