I would like to say thank you to everyone who contributed to make this project super awesome. And to everyone who built one, ENJOY THE RIDE!

Mayday very nice jet.

The build is simple and looks great and looks like it flys as good as it looks.

The motor is the one I use in my 16" F22 and SU27 mid prop. I use a similar esc, prop and 800mah 2's battery. What about the flight time? great hey!

I hope more people discover this mighty little motor. I am sure it will end up being as popular as the mighty Blue Wonder motor.

Mayday I have been using Dekans F22 build method to make all my jets. Who drew the plans for this one? I dare him to draw plans for a Eurofighter using this build method :D The Eurofighter is the only jet I can't seem to get right:mad:

Great build, it hides nearly all the running gear.

Your jet next on the build list.

Thanks bro, the plan link is on my first post. Just print it on a single sheet of paper and have it scaled up/or photocopied at 200%. Check the pictures on my build log, it's pretty easy to build let me know if you have any questions... The slow inverted flight is predictable and I can fly 6-8minutes on a 2s Rhino 610mah lipo with mix throttle. I know you will enjoy this little funjet, she now reside on my trunk and I can fly her anywhere.

Happy Building,

Mayday27 you have tor try a full fuse using my new fuse plans .

LOL the glide test of the micro are way better than first and I'm sure extra sleek fuse will just be a help on that speed. LOL

som saples of laminated versions ;)

#11 Kronikpilot Sep 08, 2010 03:27 PM

Looking awesome Scott! I like those canards to keep her nose up. The speed is pretty good with the box fuse, but I will build a rounded fuse when my foam gets here. Thanks for looking.


#12 splitpilot Sep 08, 2010 07:28 PM

I will try it!!!

#13 Prime_8 Sep 08, 2010 07:38 PM

hmm i wonder if you are gettin free lifting body effect with the boxed fuse? hmm

most up to date plans are kept in these perma links immages on my server .
and for full fuse builders wanting to try laminated ...

very simple if you use those immages they aer 850x 1100 pixels . LOL. just a tad higher rez than forum attachments .

-- those images will update automaticaly when i upload any revissions.

#14 Kronikpilot Sep 09, 2010 05:02 AM
