No rudder? Are the retract bays cut out?

Starting out like some other early version composites huh? I'm guessing it's not fully ducted either. Considering the long intake design of the F-20, I wonder how much full ducting would add to the performance.
Good questions. keep 'em coming.

I'm going to ask Dave at Skyworld to be sure to follow along with this thread.

oops, I didn't answer you question.
Doesn't look like the rudder is cut out. I haven't seen the underside of the jet. but I doubt if the cutouts are marked.
Unfortunatley, I was not involved in the design process. Changes may be difficult to incur.

Such a vivid imagination!!!

Lets get one thing straight, I dont bash products, asking a question or raising a point is NOT bashing a product, its called being thorough, anyone who brings a new product straight to market without thorough testing is only in it for a quick buck, I ask questions and raise issues before deciding on any product, you can bash me all you like but it wont change these facts.

Maybe you should direct your other taunts to my mates currently finishing up in Iraq, I can put you in touch with one right now who lost everything in Catrina.

Sapac l-39

Heys here is my Sapac L-39 she runs on 4 cell 3700 and CC80amp with a CC bec 10amp on 7.4 commom sense 800mAh with a on and off switch for that battery. The main runs the fan and the fan only. Waiting for the brakes for the retracks. Because the roll out on her is crazy. You can spin a wheel and come back ten min later and it is still spinning. She is one beautiful plane. I really would like to buy one of your skyworld 70mm EDF units with the motor and rotor all ready to go for another plane if you offer that please? Thanks I hope I can get sapac parts from you now when you get up and running?

I have been begging for a nice reasonably scale f-20. It is one of my favourites ranking alongside the YF-23 and the Boeing Blended Wing (that would be a nice model subject that no one has done yet??)

I would be a definite if it is retract ready and the ducting is installed like the current composite market leaders.

Can you say whether it is epoxy or poly resin. I think I know the answer but it if it is epoxy, I would consider concessions in other areas. J
