Hi - here is my micro raptor made of 3 mm foam (selitron) and a foamnose for surviving the trim flights:
Rx/ESC=minium brick, elevons
Tx=minium 2,4 GHz, modded with Arcox mixer/reverser
rods=modified from minium cessna
motors=AA/x-twin jet pagers + props
I preferred this (dual) motor setup because of a nice mass distribution, as compared with a single motor pusher. The plane is imho very simple, clean and good looking.
Parkzone Powered Alleycat

Specs: 15cm WS, 16g AUW (less battery)
Material Required: Parkzone 210 & Jet Scream components, 3mm Depron
Plans are a modified "alleycat" from http://www.aatoolbox.no-ip.org Original plan by Nitrostar at RCG. You will need to scale up the wing as specified by the author.
Here is what she has to say about her build:
Airhogs JetScream 33mm stock ducted fan and 130ma 1 cell lipo
Parkzone brick with dual rudder and steerable nose gear, PZ wheels
CG is further back maybe due to over sized wing. I had made a previous test model based strictly from the plans, but rolled right and nose planted many times, but was able to do a controlled powered glide after about a minute of flight on the PZ 70ma battery.
I then added small flaps in the middle section, made the wings bigger 15cm leading edge. Rolled an airfoil into the wing with a little washout, had to play around to find a good point for CG (Still trimming to get it flying better) and that is about it. I ended up using both fans from the jet scream wired in parallel to get the nessessary thrust. Once I get nother jetscream I want to try a quasi 2cell setup on the PZ brick and see if I can make it a single fan again.

This is pretty much what happened to my PZ Cessna. The RX went in the proton-jet and the rest of the foam body became a simple 2 channel conversion. (Notes: Check out Proton Project 2 for the Cessna 210 images.)
