    Greetings, Sidewayskiwi!

    I’ve never built it without the KF’s, so I don’t know how they affect the performance.

    The length is approximately 38 inches / 97 centimeters and the wingspan is 27 ½ inches / 70 centimeters.

    And I would like to apologize to anyone who is still waiting on me to post my modifications. I haven’t flown or built anything in 2018 due to some other personal projects that basically took over any hobby time. (“It’s been like a year and a half, dude!” “I know. I suck,” is the conversation I hear in my head every time I’m in my basement and see the plane.) It is a source of shame, and I hope to get back into the hobby in 2019, with this plane being a priority.

    If i can remember i will measure mine later for you.

    Let me caution you on this plane. The suggested motor mount is difficult to make work. The elevons are kinda too small to be very effective. The double step KF is just for looks really. It adds drag to this plane. I never really enjoyed flying mine. I liked looking at it more than flying it lol

    Its an unusual KF set up iam leaning more towards KF4 for it
    And finding away to activate the control surfaces inside the nacelles
    Maybe quadrace motors inside the nacelles with gemfan 6 blades going counter clockwise to cancel torque reaction

    I still had the instructions saved as a web page and converted it to a PDF file. Hope this helps.
