Flying Styro A-7 Corsair??

Hello, I was taking a look at the A-7 Corsair and it looks like like a pretty decent kit...in the ARF and already painted form. I also heard it will fly on a EDF well. I did a search on this website and only a few things came up. What do you all think of this model? Are there any good websites on this model? Thank you for replies.

Hi,

Go go go to Electric Jet Factory's construction site, to get all the details of the model with nice views and building tricks.

On a turbo 400 fan, the A-7 flies- the F-16 doesn't. Don't expect whizzbang performance, but it is neat to see this jet in the air. I could never get mine to loop, but it rolls fine. I wrote out a different set of building instructions using some of the photos on the EJF site- tailerons might make more sense than ailerons if you feel like experimenting. These kits are not wonderful by the way, I wasn't real impressed by the accuracy of the moldings or how well stuff was put together. But this was my first EDF and I'm still hooked.

I twill fly very impressive with the EDF300 from wemotec, new version will be available soon.
Use the speed 300 and 8 cell GP60AAH, they only weigh 14 g and can handle up to 9 amps.
Tailerons work fine.

Of course the small hacker makes a biest out of it.
