It's worth waiting a few days, timatworksg! The mk2 feels like it has a stabilizer on it in high alpha and while inverted. We have refined it in every way!

Thanks f1wanabe! Appreciate the hard work in designing and refining! I did build your SU37 when it was released. Within a week my friend wanted it. LOL!

Will wait for the release...watching the website closely! Cheers!

The work is worthwhile! Thank you to the whole team. The great thing about FRCFoamie designs are that they are easily adaptable to the type of foams available. The cut and fold method works well here, even on thicker EPP! The sizes are great for parkflying and I can see, alot of thought has gone into making construction effortless.

Once again, appreciated and yes will update on the Alpha Jet Mk2 build once the plans are out! Sorry didn't do the SU37 pics as it wasn't in my hands long enough...lol! Cheers!

This is very cool. I saw the first version at Warwick NY rc fly in. I need to build one for this season. Would be cool with some led lights on the inside for some night flying at neat fair.
