Yet another Fighter jet, this time is F/A-18F the 2 seated Super Hornet, the wingspan is about 1 meter plus, with the flying weight about 1700 gram. It's still using the same EDF as my previous jet, which is 70mm 12 blades FMS EDF. I use 6S battery by connecting two 3S 2200mAh Lipo batteries in series. Because F-18 has dual exhaust I have to make a bifurcated duct made form art card, the power is not too different from if without using split duct exhaust. I was planning to copy the CG from the FMS Super Hornet but when I examine it the FMS Super Hornet was not made in scale with the real plane, the shape of the wing is different from the real plane, maybe they use F-18 legacy hornet as a base and just modify the LERX and the air intake. So I have to calculate it manually.

1. Wingspan 1020m / 40 inch
