F-15 edf

HI EVERYONE,
ok i'm going to try starting a new thread just for f15's.i know there is the hk f15 thread but there is no 'just' f15 threads around.therefore i'm going to try.look guys it's just a thread for f15 enthusiasts outthere who want to find a place where they can share their f15 experiences whatever the make.
i have an F15 from starmax.i've just upgraded from the stock motor and fan to the extremerc.com.au 70mm alloy combo.maidened it moday and like i described in the 'hk' f15 thread, all went well.found that the stock retracts are starting to fail on grass takeoff's as she does need a bit of a run to get her up but the new combo reduced that run by a lot.i will soon post a vid of the sound she makes .pretty unique.will also post pics of the bird,
cheers guys and welcome,
rudy

hi lee andd frank,welcome
cheers for posting.i do love the f15 too lee .i think it started when my parents gave me a starscream from transformers and at the time it was an f15 not an f22 like nowadays and from then i just got stuck to that one!with the new set up she still handles beautifully frank.i only used half throttle all the way.you can check out the sound on the extremerc. website.they have it running in an f16 though,but you get roughly the idea.mine is even more silent
i will try to get a vid of it running in mine this weekend
cheers
rudy

Won't be able to fly 'til weekend mate so hopefully I can catch you this weekend. Been trying to figure out how to get the F18 to the field. Looks like I can't do it unless I remove all the child seats in my car...

finally got those retracts working properly.cheers for the oleos mark and j.p for the carbon fibre! and everyone else that advised me.they look sick
so i changed the stock ones for another mechanical retracts but did some mods to it.so i've cut a carbon plate then glued and srewed it to the old existing plate making my solid base.then i needed a longer but also stronger servo arms, so i glues two carbonfibre plates on each arm giving me more throw and rigidity.angled the rear retracts arms.i made carbon fibre mounts to make sure that the retracts would sit firmly screwed to the base.so did four of them.
after all that i'm happy with the result
