Madison, that looks FANTASTIC... one of the best I have seen!

I have the same one, but it seems to me that yours is a "Non enamel/shiny finished version"??
Some of your pics show the fine foam pock marks (typical of foam), but mine is sort of glass-smooth, due to is quite thick enamel (it seems) coating. Which chips too.
I would rather not have had this coating as it is not very well done....

Did you get Callie graphics? I never did look at the whole set mine came with, so I am not sure if yours has extras - which it seems they would be - or not.

And pics of a red, and a blue, one..... does that mean you have two?

Yes, flies and sounds great! If I remember corrrectly: 60mm exhaust, bottom cheater fully open, no cheaters on top (and gear channels closed when gear up).
Seems to work just fine.
You wrote that you don't experience the ballooning that some report?
CG as per manual or more in front?
thx!
Clemens
PS: You got a rather big lipo in there, I hope to balance mine with a smaller battery...

Mike,

Thanks!
Actually my eyesight is not that good. The video camera has a wide angle lens so in real life it's a bit larger. I know this airframe pretty well by now so it's not that difficult.

I usually don't maiden new models in such poor visibility weather.

Clemens,

cheater open and no cheaters on top. Will open them up soon though to get some more air to the fan.

Balooning only appears with cg a few mm further back and it's vicious.
I use a cg of 60-62mm from wing leading edge.
Easy to do with the heavy (500gr) batteries.
You may have noticed that on take-off I used most of the runway. Had to arm restle it off the ground....

Last week is used a 3300mah battery and forgot to check the cg.
On landing, I cut throttle a bit too soon and it balloned about 2 meters up, stalled and fell on all 3 gears hard. Only minor damage to the from LG mount. Could easily have been much worse.

Folks, I need some help. I just bought the F9F-2 Panther (blue tail) that was suppose to be NIB. Well what I got was an airframe and a 68mm fan unit. No instructions, no parts bag, and no esc. I have since learned this particular unit didn't come with an esc.I've searched and can't find a manual or info on whatever parts bag came with it. The plane had also sat for a very long time because all the installed control rods are corroted and the manual retracts are froze up.

Can anyone help me out with a link to manual and what kind of accessories package came with the plane? thanks.

the guys at parkrcmodels might be able to help w/ the instructions. if the model is a eps v1 w/ the retracts they are useless anyway. we locked them down or replaced w/ the etracts.
