I think a 1100mm version of this DH84 would have at least one enthusiastic customer image

    Some stuff that doesn't have a PZ equivalent. Put them buggers on the back foot properly.



    A proper, twin EDF A6 would be nice.

    A durafly EPO version of a Quad/Hex Copter! Something themed, like the 'Dragon' from Pandora or the Avenger's Quad-Carrier!

    Snappy, it would be pure sacrilege to make a beautiful aircraft like that in foam. My vote goes to the Fouga Magister.

    +1 on the GM, but I do hope they will bring the correct plane and not the plane from you picture, because I'm not 100% convinced that that is a GM.

    That's a Canberra aka Martin B57

    One of the guys I fly with had a mid air in the night fighter version when he flew with the RAF and had to take to the silk. He still has the parachute handle on his model room wall.

    The Meteor is a beautyful plane, as a model it could give 3 problems:



    - 2 EDF units small and powerful enough due to small air intakes and small exhausts

    - wing stability, the EDF units are cutting the wing into 2 pieces every side

    - maybe a low roll rate due to the EDF units



    I´m trusting Scott he´ll work it out! My vote is for the Meteor. AND for the Fouga Magister!

    Solution to all your 3 problems: make it large enough!

    Or make a DH84 instead image
  • DaithiDaithi Belfast,IrelandClub Members Posts: 8,708 ✭✭✭
    Or a Me262 (pods don't go through the wing) ;)

    Agreed image



    Or create an EDF small and powerful enough for this model. Maybe a Twin EDF could be the right idea for this, 1 Motor between 2 EDF units.

    The problem with ducted fan propulsion is that it doesn't work like a turbine (there's no compression) so non-scale intakes and outlets are needed to get enough airflow through the pipes to actually propel the model

    Oh yes, a Me262 would be great image

    Had such a problem a few years before, and the solution was a twin EDF. Model was a Heinkel HE-178 "Volksjaeger" and i managed to build a scale turbine housing with that. I also used a few "cheater holes" in front of the first EDF unit to get more air into it. This model had no chance to start with only 1 EDF unit, no matter where it was installed in the turbine housing. But with 2 units the Heinkel did an easy start from grass at the first try!



    I think this trick will give a Meteor with nearly scale turbine housings enough power, it should be worth trying. To be honest, the Meteor don´t need to be massive overpowered for scale flying image

    Surely the He178 was just a Versuchsflugzeug from 1939 - The 'Volksjaeger' was the He162 Salamander



    Plans for both Me262 and He162 by the way (scratch build) are available at

    Not a Meteor, actually is a Canberra, would make a very nice and good flying subject.

    Wow what a question, where to start. I also share some of the previous posts ideas with a Canberra or a Meteor. Either of these would be just lovely! I would like to throw a couple more in for consideration.



    1) Hawker Sea Fury

    2) Hawker Hurricane

    3) BF 109

    4) Lancaster Bomber

    I know I have seen a Lancaster talked up on the hobby King Facebook page, but it never seems to have materialised.
