Fly the jet fighter that ruled the skies across the world for a generation!

Commissioned in 1958 as America's main strike fighter, the F-4 PHANTOM is still in active service in many airforce's around the world today although it has now been officially retired from the American military.

Awesome F4! How much $ are they?

#5 TimJohnson Jun 23, 2008 01:13 PM

street price should be around $199.99. This airplane comes with the EDF, Motor, 2 servos, and ESC.

I will hold my thoughts, until I get her up in the air. :)

#6 ATIS Jun 23, 2008 01:32 PM

Tim, is that the same motor as the F-16 and A-6??

#7 slowflight Jun 23, 2008 03:18 PM

great looking F-4 but it needs
something

1/ ailerons + elevator instead of only those tiny tailerons :eek: :eek:
2/ better size fan for 500 g AUW, 60mm fan would be better
and it look like there is room for it

#8 TimJohnson Jun 23, 2008 09:11 PM

I guess there will always be critics........

BTW Slowflight, you forgot rudder.....http://www.lanmaniac.com/forums/imag...n_rolleyes.gif

i guess it looks decent besides the stabs, but thats a easy fix. i still really like the A-6 though :) i think they hit the nail on the head on the looks of the A-6.

Not really digging those obtrusive elevon control rods on top of an otherwise beautiful airframe.

Kyosho really needs to copy Alfa on the hidden/flexable control rod design... very subtle and intuitive...

Also, looks like a 200% FSA.... :(

#11 ace128 Jun 23, 2008 10:55 PM

looks sickkk :)

#12 TimJohnson Jun 23, 2008 10:59 PM

You will not see the control linkage at 20 feet out....The negativity flows in this forum.....

#13 CarreraGTSCS Jun 23, 2008 11:09 PM

Not negativity. We're slowly learning to expect more from a $200 foamy. Looks nice. Good luck on the maiden.
