Yippee!
umx as3x F8F Bearcat..eat your heart out horizon!!!

so....i carved this f8f bearcat out of blue foam..used the guts from my umx p51..and boy it flies awesome!!!! currently using a 1s 250 for needed balast. flies inverted hands off..it just about wont stall and when it does it wont break...and it tracks like a pattern plane!!!! still needs paint and a few final details..but here she is...just a little bigger than the p51. needs a brushless power setup but other than that...its perfection..

i also built a 36in n9m with a mosquito power system....no verticals and it flies awesome!!!!

Why didn't you make one for me!

I've been asking for Grumman planes in the 'what next ' Thread for months.

I really want an F4F if your up to it!!!

Jack

PS: with retracks, & Cowl Flaps! I have the electronics?
PSS: I'll pay the shipping to get it here & I'll do the paint?

PSSS: Nice job on the F8F. How about a Video? HH wants to see it too!

You did a great job. If you paint as well as to shape your going to have a nice F8F>

Oh man, this thing looks real slick. Sure hoping that Horizon will come out with some more AS3X UMX warbirds like this.

Are you planning to add any scale details? And is that a canted vertical stabilizer to account for engine torque?
