M-3 is flying real nice. I for sure like the smaller size better than the larger "lighter" one for what I am looking for. I found these vids of a big fat SU-47 that prove exactly what I was thinking:

If you look at the thrust vectoring movements of this big boy, you can see that the momentum is much more scale. I love how it flys belly first as its flipping around. Something that can only be done with a heavier plane. The light ones just stop and flip too fast. I can get a 3D foamie to flip fast, that's not what I am looking for with this thrust vectoring jet...

So M-3 is getting flown every day while I make some small changes and build M-4. Looks like everything is on schedule and I will paint M-4 nice and that will be the one for the big video. Then any minor changes will be made in M-5 if needed.

But the kit will be the same size as M-3 above.
