"5EZP" Grumman A-6 INTRUDER

After my Louisiana cousin totaled his Freewing Intruder I decided to show him that you can have a flying model intruder without spending $400.

Well with a 2300kv GH Super-Sonic motor 30A ESC and 1350 mah Li-Po she weighs 15oz. So with servos she should be under 20oz. just right for the 24 oz. thrust of the SS motor.

Wow. Yes please. Can't wait for the plans, oddly enough this is another one of my favorite jets. Not sure why...

I hear ya kcolraw,
I'll have the plans ready soon.
Well I'm standing at the hangar door here in stormy "Windiana". Looks like it will be Thursday before weather will clear and a "5EZP" INTRUDER maiden flight can be attempted.

Would you care to share with the rest of the class? It looks amazing, I am chomping at the bit ,here. BTW I did build the f15 but the kfm4 wing wasn't to my liking and thing went south quickly. My I ask why you use a kfm4 wing?

I'm sorry you had trouble with the F-15. Did you do the V1, V2 or the F-15 Silent Eagle V3??
The Kline Fogleman KFm4 wing has proven time after time to provide excellent lift and unmatched stability with these flat foam wing park jets. I have tried and liked the KFm2 but for me the KFm4 provides the best performance.

I will post a flight with an on board camera soon. I wanted to see how much if any the tail section was twisting inflight .he twisting seems minimal.
