Already said its the LX F-35. That's a pic when I was measuring it all out .... and sorry no Russian dude holding the model
I'm looking for what I posted for the landing gear but it look exactly the same even down to the wood ply mount to position the ball & socket. Thing is I found the ball and socket method gets loose after a short time. Not with the F-35 as it hasn't flown but from the ChangeSun and to this custom the setup would sometimes stick after a run off the rough grass....

gear

I was more interested in the angles of the rotating gimble. I'm assuming it's a 45 degree angle as if looking from front to back, but curious to what the angle is as if looking from the side. also, wondering what the angle of the axle is, in relation to the gear strut.

Angles are 52 or 53 degree both ways as far as I can remember from Grumania guy building his giant turbine Flanker. Can't find the website where he posted detailed build of entire model.

Ya no sorry I only got as far as the sample you showed in post 165. No angle in the axis of rotation. Hadn't come up with a good simple way of fabricating it but now I have one.
This should also work for your Jaguar. Is that what you had this in mind for?
Now I've got to figure out what scrap metal channels I have that could......

Myself I prefer EPS. EPO is great but it's too heavy most of the time. Anyone know the true weight on this bird yet?

Its posted at 2700g on the R2F site. They have been fairly close for most of the posted weights. The concern is what we add and wing load what it can take. Thus my previous questions to calc wing area and load.

Seems to me this paint scheme would make it hard to tell the orientation of the plane. I mean just look at the two pictures in post 157 and image looking at this at high speed.

I would prefer a non-camouflage scheme.

Hi Guys

Just to let you know that those pics I showed you guys is from the prototype.

The Black Color will need to move towards a more blueish color like on the real one.

Plus the retracts will need to get a bit better to, a bit to much slop.

However...Let me tell you please 1 thing.
First of all, I would always share anything with you guys when something new is coming out, when of course I have the permission to do so.

On the other side I must also say that I am a very though person when it comes to rate a plane about it's quality.
I would never ever try to guide you all in a wrong way to think that a Jet is nice, though it isn't.
Therefor my Critics may be for some awkward or they feel being criticized or attacked, all I wanna do however is to help to bring something good.

I am very close to some sources and we are about to have our hottest year in front of us of Jet Flying.

I am really trying my very best to bring you the latest.

I hope that everyone will enjoy this bird, once it will arrive worldwide for shipping.

I have already new plans about something cool to be next.

Who else would want another Russian Jet Fighter Jet? HANDS UP!

Am I am dead serious about it.

And thank you guys for all these positive comments after those pics and videos, it really motivates me to provide further new announcements and of course the latest of Jet Development.

Thanks.

NS.

PS: The whole Videos were Bone Stock. I can guarantee this to you guys. I checked it myself and it is on the video as you will fly it yourself.

It depends...really..the Eurofighter is just a bit cheaper but also older.

If you look at composite jets, you will never get a rtf version for this price at all.

You will be around at least the 700 dollar range if you safe on the equipment, for example a habu32 can easily cost around 700 dollars but is also smaller.

It all depends how you look at it, plus the Eurofighter and the Super Hornet was at start also expensive.
