the flying qualities will be really nice just a little concerned about performance more than anything. i guess im just hoping battery tech evolves a little more during this models life span. i dont want to go turbine if u dont have to.

I know what you mean, I'm looking at carrying 13lbs of batteries in my F-5 to get the desired performance and duration so any advances in battey technology will be good.

I bet yours will be faster than mine Brent. With your ducting it should move out pretty nice. Mine with just a divider between the fans and cheater holes is doing 135mph.

Back when the gear door blew off on the second flight I had to make a new door a few months ago. I ordered the replacment U.S. decal from Callie and that came in so I put that on today and added a thin black stripe on the leading edge of the wing.

Thanks Walt,

Not sure what the next build will be. I did make a new rule though, I have to give up a plane before I can start a new one. Man I have to start thinning the fleet a little ...no more room

The next build short list in no particular order:

Rare Bear
F-15
AV8 Harrier( I have an awesome idea for a full hover/ forward flight set up)
A top of line long range FPV platform

Is it wrong of me to want to make sweet love to that pretty little Talon?

Then definitely the harrier. But this time, don't make it as small as the T38. Go for a 1:1 scale...
