That is a beautiful Plane! and a great video! It will be quite the screamer with the 6 other motors on the back.

I can't wait to put together the micro version with 3".

When you declared this project, I was concerned about the supports too. I thought you would just put a symmetrical airfoil around the CF tube spar that went through the larger outlet. (taper afterward). Then I was thinking that if you built it like the Giant FT A-10, and make a 3/4 ply ring the spar hooks to...

I have a project (Eldar cruiser) in mind like the SR-71 blackbird with a tube shooting through the structural spar, I was planning to set a number of 3/8' thick rings in the foam around the engine tubes to continue the spar. (and cross my fingers) but I have more work before I get there.

Great Job! I can't wait to build one of my own. (now you need a ton of red-faced Hydra troopers to "jump" out of it mid flight.
Thanks! I'm super excited to see your Spruce Gosling (that what I voted for) but I'm not 100% sure I'll ever fly it with the full compliment of 8 engines. I plan on adding two more props but i lowkey kinda took 4 of them for a quad...

I definitely need some hydra goons to drop from the plane and be see if it can be used as a parasite mother ship lol. I'll honestly be looking into it.

I think the rings are the only real way to reinforce a tube that goes through the spar. I tried to do a simpler solution and threaded a paint stick through the edf tube. I think it would be enough for a smaller model but this thing is just way too large.

Thank you back, I am VERY close to being done. I keep debating about if I should test more (2 motors on one ESC) or I have a quad that I did that to, stole a motor or two to build some plane projects... (as I have yet to have a built and flying 5" yet :mad:, I didn't have a problem)

I just had a thought about this and wondered if you could make a 3-d printed play-dough mold and then make them from the bake-clay. or make a roller...and roll-out an army!:LOL: no, i am seriously rolling it around my head.:ROFLMAO:

so, now... about those plans
