"PHANTOM /F-4" of the Pacific.

After all these long years it's still going like a "PHANTOM"! Enjoy the scenery.

Good lube after each beach flying session is the key to my success with these models. Over 300 flights with this "F-4" mostly off the sand and still in its original condition. Enjoy the footage.

Hi Rog, glad to hear you enjoyed it. It's only short stroll to walk to this spot from my house, that's why I relocated last year. I got some 50kms of beaches like this within 20min drive, my darl just bought 4x4 so we can access even better spots. You don't have to worry about putting on budgie smugglers. Cheers.

Another experiment, fitting it with different power unit, this time JF90 rotor in alloy shroud and using some higher C/rate batteries.

Wow! Who cares about the jet... look at that scenery! You are a lucky fellow to live so close to such a beautiful, secluded beach. Thanks for taking the time to post the video.
