So I made this back in April, because Chuppster suggested it. And he's done a great job of getting me to actually make some plans. I recently finished the plans for him, and decided I should share them with the rest of you. Maybe it'll hold Daniel over on the F-104 (I'll have those plans done soon lol). Anyway, here are the specs and a video! I also think I might've finally beat John Overstreet to a US jet design :) I'll admit the build is challenging, and as for the inlets, mine were not large enough and i had to include a cheater hole.

Length: 57.8 in
Wingspan: 31.5in
Motor: FMS 6 blade 70mm EDF
Battery: 2800-3200 mAh 4s or 6s

Alright everyone, after significant redesign, I've created a much better set of plans and a somewhat different aircraft! Here's some pics! (should be another century series fighter inbound soon :) )

I freaking love this idea, I started out making 50mm jets, I can't wait to see it!!
So did I!
I still have 2 30mm Edf's waiting to get into some airframe.
I guess I'll just scratch build a B2 out of balsa around these motors

Anyway the 105 is gonna be built!
