Depending on the time getting through Customs, maybe a month.!

The response to the prototype was huge. Evelyn and I spent to two full days at the Banana Hobby booth and people were going nuts over both the F-35, F-16, F-14, F-22, B-2, A-10 and SU-47! I personally was more impressed with the quality of the 70mm F-16 than the new 90mm Falcon. The 70 had better foam quality, scale retracts, tanks and weapons and just looked the part. There is no debut that we will look back several years from now and just smile at these early foamy EDF jets we fly today because the new jets are really starting to look like the real thing. The EPS foam quality just looks incredible! There were guys that fly 15 to 20K turbine F-14s buying up the foamies version. One guy flies this jet below. Just showed me that the foamy must be good enough for any F-14 fan.

Best,
Tony

I did ask him because I'm was struggling with the decision to buy one. He said that the 4S version is better and that it flies great. I asked about pitch changes when he sweeps the wings and he didn't notice anything. Possibly my next jet but there is so many to choose from this year.

Tony

I agree...that is the only reason I haven't pulled the trigger on one just yet...figure let them get the bugs worked out and then once it is rock solid I will pick one up! BTW I flew my BH SR-71 (Don's Wicked motors) this past weekend and what a treat! Take a look at my blog...I have a couple of pics and video is coming

I hope Pete puts the video up for it. It would be sweet to see this thing fly.
He may have to make two, one flying scale like the pictures show, and one with the cheater hole and on armorment, if there is a difference in preformance.
