Executive Jet - Honda style


Recommended Posts

Someone posted me this link and asked if I could knock one of these up in my shed after I finish the 701. Bit beyond my capabilities...

Love the engine position, guess the Russians have done this a bit too but usually forward of the leading edge. Can anyone tell me the advantage of mounting them above the wing as opposed to the normal position off the side of the fuselage? Guessing there's not as much load cantilevered out.

No mention of a Mach limit. (There has to be one) 420 knots is good.. The wing is aluminium. Much easier to mount an engine to that , than a carbon fuselage. and you don't run fuel and deicing ducts through the fuselage Nev

Wonder what the planing speed would be?

I was looking at the fuse profile it looks like it would be ok unless you got the pointy bit in first then things might get exciting.

Mounting on the wings reduces the spar bending moments reducing the required structural mass. The wind is milled from aluminium and is very cool looking. They had a cut away version at oshkosh 2013.
