I just ordered the airframe only version of this one as well and also plan on sticking a 4800 wicked/wemo combo on 4s in it. Judging by other posts on this jet there's a bit more room for bigger battery which is a major plus. Can't wait to see what you have in store for this bad boy!!!

I have this one "bone stock" and it flies better than I thought it would. I have some of other models which I am modifying but this one seems fine the way it is.

Good to hear, Alexander. On the other hand, too fast is always better than almost fast enough.... lol

Here are some photos. I am going with the Wicked 5400 in the Wemo fan and a 3S1300 30C lipo. The tail area is quite weak, I added some carbon strip to the tail area. Also pinned the ailerons as I will fly tailerons since they are so big.

How do you like those batts? I was planning on getting those
for the F-18. Not sure how well they will fit though.

Don,

Did you use the OEM pushrods? If so, any concern on flexing?

The stock ones are short enough that they do not flex. Hope to finish in the next few days, I ran out of receivers so had to order a few
