Up to 21 great flights now. Finally happy with the setup. The only problems so far was one of the tailerons warped. On inspection it was not glued properly. The JL quality is generally very good so this is probably a once off occurrence

So I scratch built 2 new tailerons and made them a little stronger than the originals. They work great and are much stiffer than the originals

Also convinced my wife to build a cockpit for it!!

The raptor has flown at a few local jet events. Time to start painting now that she is all set up and flying well

Looks great in those videos! I was surprised by how tight it can turn but then again I'm don't know much about turbine jets. I see that you are using standard rods for aileron/rudder control, did you decide not to go with RDS, not enough torque?

Decided against the RDS due to not much room to fit the servos in the fins with the geometry needed. It would have been alot of work to fit a system I had not used before. Would like to try it out one day in a smaller plane
