Well, here I am diving into a plane design, having built a grand total of one FT Swap-able (FT Racer) but totally digging the design philosophies of Josh and Co., as well as all the other builders here. I usually don't start with something easy, so I chose the Martin Mars seaplane, a big, 4 engine transport from the WWII era. I just kind of got to sketching, and all of a sudden, a plane started to emerge. Here are some pictures of the design work so far. Wingspan is coming in at 108.5 inches (I know, weird number, just is what it is). No idea's yet as far as what kind of motors, esc's, etc.
