OK I may have a lemon!!!

My wife recently bought a Ripmax F-16 Pusher for me as a B-day present! Hey, she wanted to get me my first Jet and this was the only thing they had at the LHS. I was very greatful. This was great I thought. ... I have been able to find only two post for this plane when I do a search for it. They both seem disappointing. Any one had good luck with this plane????

Never heard of it, or at least havent found alot on it. What are the specs and so forth, maybe we can figure it out.

Try this link, I read it and overall aside from his misfortune it sounds like this could be am interesting little plane. Go with the 8 cell pack and check your controls before the big throw! Good luck.

Thanks VF-84, I have read this link already too. Standard search from Google always throws that link up.. That report was not real promising either. 5 sec flight with the controls screwed up.. but it tracked well.. I am going to try to maiden this guy this weekend. I am actually using a LIP2s2p battery. I need to run my numbers for this plane through the moto calc to see what it thinks. Here are the specs....

The specs look interesting enough and from what I can see I dont know why you would have any trouble. At the very least it may need a bit more power or at the most it will be a nice Sunday flier. Let me know what the motocalc specs are.

What size motor?I thought it was A 400 size.If so the possibilities are endless.An Astro 020 Would be great,I have one in my Mirage and it hits 100MPH.
