Scary maiden flight of the JL F-22 due to turbulent wind. Nearly ended in disaster on take off as the elevator did not have enough up trim which caused the weight to shift on to the nose wheel.

In the air it flies great. Still have lots of work to do painting and adding scale details but at least now after 18 months of building I know it flys.

After 3 months of building the K60G turbine powered JTM viper jet it was ready to maiden. Most of the test flight was at 1/3 throttle or less. Due to the wind shifting direction during the flight I had to attempt to land in a cross tail wind and it just would not slow down

Managed to finally land with almost no fuel left!

After 4 flights the little viper was dialled in and flying on rails. It is super fast and a blast to fly. Flight times are only 4 minutes but that feels like 40 minutes with the concentration needed to keep track of it

Special thanks to Ernest from ERJETS in Singapore for his fantastic customer service!!

I am still building the Jetlegend F-22 raptor

These are an amazing flying jet but it is going to take a while to finish it as it is a kit and you have to do everything from gluing in the formers through to paint and decals

Oh, and there is no instruction manual!!

Power will be provided by a kingtech K140G turbine
