Your F-35 looks about the same size and I am sure your F-35 does not weigh as much as my F-22.
Do you have the "Real Flight" simulator by chance? If so, I put together our club field for the simulator and posted it up on the swap pages so our members can install it on the simulator. My guess is you do not have it. If so, then you can use the simulator and get a feel for what it is like at our club field. I also did PGRC in Prince George's County.
I do have Real Flight, but it is at home (Florida). Maybe I'll see if I can have it shipped here so I can download those fields. My F-35C weighs 1.25 kg, I'll look into a bigger battery but for now...I'll have to live with a 3 minute flight.
Speaking of flying into the Severn... my friend bought an foamy P-51 and has very little experience flying. I tried to convince him that it was too windy, but he went anyways. Needless to say, the wind took his bird right into the water. I was fortunate enough that my airplane has plenty of power to overcome the wind...next time I'll be a little more cautious though.
Sorry for the super delayed response, I had a rough week of classes/projects due and I was in Jamaica for spring break. Just got back 2 days ago, and now I'm ready to build and fly again
