Only one thing to do- Git 'er Done! No use waffling on this or that- get her build and make sure to post pictures of your progress! We all love a good build thread!
Possibly with some of the newer little twins coming out.Will a small twin fit in the cowl. It was such a nice project you had going.
For a 170, anything over about a 100" wing and 40 pounds is gonna be a pig....Ok... Here's the deal. I started this thing and really got bummed when I realized I'm gonna have an ugly ol 50 sized jug hanging down out of the cowl.
I'm trying to come up with a good blown up size ratio to utilize a DA100/110/150/170 etc.
At 1/4 scale this thing has a 78" wing span so you can imagine the monstrous size of a forty.
I'm leaning towards a 37.5% because the stock wood sizes translate X 1.5 (1/4" becomes 3/8")
35% = 109" ws
37.5% = 117" ws
40% = 125" ws
