SOOOO. I'm new to these things. With such a big engine, so much power, what's it for? Flying big scale planes on small motors?

The motors were chosen because they fit under the cowl. And the full scale had 4 motors, so we did this! Just something cool nobody has ever done, we actually had 6 under construction, lost 4 when our shop burnt down last year. 1 is in our cub and the other is..........well you'll see

40 POUNDS of thrust?! Dude! I don't say dude that much but how else am I supposed to respond?

So is that configuration just for looks, for experimentation, or does it actually provide an advantage over 1 large motor?
