Thread: F16 & FA18 with nitro fuel

  1. #1

    F16 & FA18 with nitro fuel

    I am wondering if anyone have try mounting the engine for this kind of airplane in the middle of the fuselage. I saw many plane mounting the engine in the front of the fuselage and some even in the back of the rudder. Any of you ever try mounting the engine inside of the fuselage right in the middle of the airplane? I mean that the prop will be inside of the airplane just like those in electric ducted fan type assembly. I am trying to build something new. Any one with this type of experience or have any pictures to show would be very much appreciated. Sorry if I didn't use any aircraft term since I am not good with aircraft terms.

    Chamras,
    I am sorry but a fuel engine driven ducted fan are a regular setup.
    We just do not sell the glo engine ducted fan setups.
    There are other companies that sell and use those type of setups.

    Dear Jay,

    Thank you very much for your reply and posting. Actually I were thinking of building a plane big enough
    to mount the OS engine into the fuselage right in the middle of it. Just my thoughts. I saw F16 where
    they mount the engine right in front of the cockpit and have a tune pipe run all the way down to the nose
    landing gear and a little to the back of it.

    Dear Jay,

    I am not mounting a jet engine on to the plane, but I am trying to mount a regular prop engine inside the fuelage
    and the same kind of setup as those electric ducted fan, the only thing different is that it would be a prop engine
    instead of jet engine.
