FlyFly 90mm F-86
 
This is my electric 90mm edf F-86 from FlyFly. I absolutely love this plane and its a blast to fly! This has FlyFly's electric retracts. They are ok and way better than their struts. They keep bending on landing. Well, if you land like I do, you'd know why. LOL. Anyways, here is my video. Hope you like.

SL,
Very nice bird. It really has great authority in the air.

Thanks Graham. I just need to find some great working struts for it.

I used the 5mm HK electric retracts with the standard FLYFLY struts and it held up very good. You need to drill out the strut to 4mm. Use 4mm piano wire and glue some tubing over the 4mm where it fits into the elctric retract with the outer of the tubing being 5mm then.
Hopes my explanation makes sense.:eek:
