Thanks Tony! It actually went together really well! For such a large EDF, it was easy and straight forward. I can't wait to fly her!

Yes it does! It does not have a drag chute and it is not 360 Vector is all.

Speechless...

I can't wait for a flight review video! I just watched the Mig-29 video and that thing is amazing! F-22/Mig-29... Are the fuel tanks and bombs easily removed? I dig the ones on the Mig, but the F-22 needs to be slick and full of speed.

Thanks! Yes the drop tanks and bombs can be removed! They are held on by a pressure hinge system. You can just pull them right off! After I film some slow fly by's and power the smoke, I will remove them and do some on the deck Wide Open passes!

Happy Flying!

So how many channels?

I count 7.

1 ESC
2 Ailerons
3 Elevator
4 Rudder
5 Gear
6 Flaps
7 Smoke

That's if the TV is on all the time.

Pete what are you flying this with and how do you have it setup?

Thanks!

You are correct with one more channel for the ejecting canopy if you wish to use it. The stock out of the box set up comes connected with a 3 way harness that runs the vector full time with the control surfaces. If you leave it at that and do not use the ejecting canopy, 7 will be fine. If you disconnect the harness and individually run the vector channels to turn them on and off, it will be an additional 2 channels. I received the sample with no radio. I am flying her on my JR 12x and an AR7000 for now. I opted to see how she will fly on full time VT. If I choose to turn the VT on and off, I will switch out my rx to a R921 2.4.

Happy Flying,

Pete
