I need help designing/building a Cargo plane, That's also capable of STOL (short take off and landing).
for the stol problem i was working on the Coandă effect like the AN-72 or Boeing YC-14.
I was wondering if foam and tapes twins plane would be a good test bed.
can I use edf on the twins?

I assume that you are thinking of the Cargo-Twin.
It is a really great STOL Cargo plane if you are not afraid of the size.
I am using the old TGY 25 gram 1700 KV "blue wonder" but for "EDF" i shold use the 3000 KV version with twice-plus power to the 1700 KV version.

You are FAR better off using props for STOL than EDFs. EDFs do not accelerate as well as prop planes.

Most important question - what size and weight of payload are you carrying?

Sorry I wasn't a little bit clearer.
I was hoping to use i as a "tow" plane, bomber and to experiment with parasite fighters's.
and if possible keep the maneuverability seen in the cargo twin

THANKS for all the help:)
