Awesome work Airc, I love how it takes off from the ground like the grunjet. Quick question how EAZY (sorry):p would it be to make the prop and edf pod interchangeable so that I could have one airframe that could fly off an edf and a prop?

Thank you, but without your Grunjet I wouldn't have thought of it! So thank you very much for your inspiration! ;)

By the way, you can read my mind! I started with this thought, but then I thought, who uses such a thing?
Here are the parts for the EDF assembly, which can replace the Power Pod nacelle:

The problem is of course the detachable fixing of both variants. Two BBQ-Skewers and FoamBoard will not withstand the loads in the long run. Maybe with a plastic reinforcement?!?

You could also slide the two drive units on with the wooden hooks, which I used to fix the top cover of the Rascal Racer, if you then hold it in position with a BBQ stick, it should work.



However, such a solution is nothing for rookies to our hobby. That's why I've published two separate plans.

Okay, cool I think I'll try something after I finish my D.520:D

would something like this work... essentially strengthening the skewer hole with some gift cards... note I found I had to scratch up the back of the card before gluing it...
