Hi

I made a video of the FS 109, look closely and you´ll se the tail haning in the slow turns!

some have problem viewing this video... try to rename it to avi or wmv.... and always use the latest divx codec

I had a Crazy sparrow and Flying boot both flew great! after bigger motor was fitted.

Hen;

So was your final review positive or negative on the FS 109?

If you did not like it, I want a BF109 for electric, I dont care what size, I wanted an arf preferably.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks
Kirby

I like the FS 109!! when not pushed to the limits it flies rather good, ....and looks awsome! I guess I have a kind of positive feeling about the plane

Kirby,

your wish can be fullfilled
I got information from FSK that they are working on a Spit with the same size.
Aaaaand: Maybe a FW-190...

Good flights, Holger

Holger is right, I recently saw the new Spitfire Mk IX, it was an incredible model with more detail than you can imagine.

I was flying my Bf-109 from Flying Styro this morning, really does nicely. It should be made clear that this is NOT the old 109 that was kitted by FS, that was a bead foam freeflight model that was quite a bit smaller and heavier than the all new Depron hollow molded Bf-109. I am flying mine with a BB 280 on 8 720mAh Nimh cells.

I have attached a photo from this morning. I can't wait to get the Spit so that we can mix it up in a mock Battle of Britain.

Man that 109 looks SHARP!!!

I guess HL will have them in a couple weeks?
The Lexx is supposed be coming out also, but not quite a parkflyer.

No, the Bf-109 is a bit too quick for that motor combo. It is close to scale and as such the wing area is small (I don't have the numbers here). The motors that fly the plane nicely are the Graupner 280 Race and the Simprop BB 280, both with the gearbox that comes with the kit.

Thank you for the compliment. Yes HL will have them very shortly.

The Lexx is a super plane! They will be in stock in about 4 weeks. Gary Wright is going to be flying one shortly. After he flew the one that I brought to NEAT in the Saturday demo (and did a terrific job particularly that being the first time that he had ever flown the plane) he wanted one for himself.
