New Taft Jets

Was looking at Tafts site to see if they had done anything with the F-15 and F-14 and saw these new ones.

I waited long enough for their "F-15". I just ordered a new 90mm F-18. Sorry Taft: You Lose....

Nothing like ripping off someone else's designs. At least Taft gave the Scorpion flaps and rudders from the onset.

Then they should have made for 8s -10s. like the original one.
The E-Scorpion never had a clear canopy, only the Scorpion or Super Scorpion. And sometimes the didn't either.

ammeded.

If you look closely at the scorpion pics on tafts website, it looks like the elevator tube runs through the bottom of the exhaust duct.
