Been doing a lot of slow flying planes lately but got the urged to done another pusher jet and decided to do Shumate T-38 again. I scaled it up to 120% approx. 33"ws...it a nice size for me tired old eyes.
It is built using DTF with the outer paper skin removed to save wt. and covered with 3/4oz FG and WBPU. It's AUW with a 3S 1500MA bat is 27oz
It uses a great little Emax AX2212-1400kv, 220watt from HeadsupRC( a great place to do business with) with 8X4 apc prop. 3 position flaperons.,
Just came back from maiden grey cloudy skies about 64F and winds gusting 5-10mph.
The maiden was fantastic no trim required (probably a first for me) on high rates with rolls like crazy on low rates gentle as a kitten. All-n-all a great maiden and time. Just wish I had someone to video it. Need to get a keychain camera for my hat

J & Nut
Great n nice of u guys to chirp in!!!
Been lurking in the background building /flying a lot of slow stuff, but while browsing this forum the old juices started flowing n at 77 when they flow u got to use them no telling when they may be back again.
Actually Nut I came across a couple of your T-38/F-5 which was the inspiration to give it a go again.
Hey J, I had tears in my eyes when that beautiful F-16 u built for Hans went in a year or two ago.
Thanks Again Guys
