I thought I would answer my own question, as I did some testing.
  • single springy round steel behaved as expected.
  • symmetrical springy round steel behaved like springy flat aluminum/carbon

  • single springy flat aluminum/carbon behaved like single round steel
  • symmetrical springy flat aluminum/carbon behaved as expected

Question Optional buran?

I guess I could do the same to this as I did to the nacelles and fans.

Your computer won't like this plane either DangerZone. Too many propellers, right now there are 12 engines on it 6 for the spinning fans and 6 for the nacelle graphics. The buran will add another engine/propeller.

I also found an edf that is taking pre-orders and has an appropriate diameter for this model. 195 mm edf It is a little high on the power output. Although you can always detune an edf with less voltage.

Very impressive DZ, Thanks, That thing IS HUGE. Very impressed with the short takeoff distance for such a large plane. Gotta have some big "jewels" to fly that thing for sure.

Agreed, I was impressed with the beginning of that vid. The plane must be, AT LEAST 1/4 of a mile away, but, I`m guessing closer to a half mile, could be even a mile..??, BUT, when you look at the cockpit windshields, and think that there`s a man`s head behind them, it really gives you a good perspective of just how large it is. And, my god, look at how many wheels it has. all in all, a masterpiece of engineering, no matter who`s side your on.

There are some other large haulers out there too

Don't forget about the Aerospacelines Guppy and Super Guppy, Boeing Dreamlifter, Airbus Beluga. Of course the Spruce Goose is there in size if not capability. Give credit for pic to wikipedia.

Lots of interesting designs. I don't like those pictures of one plane in front of another... it is just like showing the fish you caught... of course you push it out in front of you to make it look bigger! Works every time.

Nice reference pic. 12-O NOW, who would do such a dastardly thing as to post a false picture of there catch of the day (pic.#1) Gotta be real, what with all the pollution C`MON MAN (pic.#2) Now, I don`t know what looks bigger, BUT, it sure ain`t the fish, even if he is out front, thus disproving your notion
